Announcing this at a media conference here on Tuesday, Mr Renkadaguthu said that as part of the mission the Prathishthana would provide free electricity for five years to all the people in the village currently living without it. Shobha Karandlaje, Minister for Electricity who has been notified about this step, had given assurances of providing the necessary assistance, he said.
Fertilisers would be distributed free of cost to all the farmers in the village. Houses would be constructed for the homeless. Every underprivileged home would be provided with household items and clothes. A medical practitioner would be appointed to the village along with an ambulance, he said.
Mr Shivappa said that the project would be inaugurated by RSS leader Dr Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat. Along with Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar, five former Chief Ministers of the State D V Sadananda Gowda, B S Yeddyurappa, S M Krishna, H D Kumaraswamy and M Veerappa Moily would also participate in the event, he said.
But he could not furbish information as to how funds would be raised to undertake such a project; nor could he specify when the project would be launched. The inauguration would be held within a month, he said.
“The village of Koyyur will be developed in a way that it would prove as an example to all existing backward villages. Presently, drinking water is being supplied free of cost to the Gram Panchayat from my land. A request will be made to the government to facilitate the supply of free water to the entire village in future,” he said.
