This is the first time that all the MLAs of Uttara Kannada district have participated in this discussion and have raised their voices in favor of the district. There is no doubt that Uttara Kannada district should get better quality health care. The Chief Minister has already promised us. In principle consent has been given. He said that as soon as the assembly session is over, we will hold another meeting and settle the hospital issue as soon as possible.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister J.C. Madhuswamy objected to allowing such a long discussion on this matter. How many years will you allow for a single question? Responding to this, the Speaker said, “If I do not allow the discussion, my friends are waiting to dispute the same.” Above all, this is the priority of the people of our constituency, he said.

At one point, Dinakara Shetty and Sunil Naik lost their patience and immediately gave Rs 300 crore to the district hospital. They entered the well and started a sit-in saying that the grant should be announced. At last the protest was withdrawn on the instructions of the Speaker.
