People of Karnataka do not want Venkayya to represent them in Rajya Sabha
#VenkayyaSakayya #ವೆಂಕಯ್ಯಸಾಕಯ್ಯ We Indians voted Modi to power on the hope that Modi would transform India into a developed nation and the team of Modi and Amit Shah is a beacon of hope to millions of Indians. Modi always responded to people's wishes and his incredible work ethics and devotion towards country's progress is being witnessed by us. Thanks to Modi Governments pro-people approach India is reaching soaring heights in all fields. Modi is undoubtedly a great visionary which India deserved from a long time, but the same cannot be said about all his Ministers and MPs. There are few ministers who represent the age old, lethargic mindset which the earlier Governments had and hindered India's development. One such minister is Mr Venkayya Naidu, whose contributions to the people of Karnataka are less than the hairs on a freshly shaved head of a devotee in Tirumala. Rajya Sabha or Council of States is meant to safeguard the interests of the people of the State, but this Venkayya Naidu neither belongs to Karnataka State nor has worked towards the development of Karnataka State during his last 3 tenures as MP of Rajya Sabha from Karnataka. During the last few days thousands of people from Karnataka has taken their frustration online and campaigned against him and appealed to BJP Karnataka not to push for his candidature for RS Seat. The hash tag “Venkayya Sakayya” and “Go Back Venkayya” was an all India trend. Mr. Naidu neither speaks the language of the land he represents nor has taken up any issues of Karnataka State to the Parliament. BJP Karnataka has turned deaf and has failed miserably to understand the frustration of thousands of people of Karnataka and have put forward Mr. Naidu’s name for the upcoming election. We have high hopes on BJP central leadership to understand and respond to the wishes of the people of Karnataka and select a candidate who understand and reflect the sentiments of people of Karnataka. If the BJP central leadership continues to ignore people’s wishes, we the people of Karnataka who has sent 19 MPs to Lok Sabha would consider BJP to be an indifferent party and would take a stand to make Karnataka free from BJP – “#BJPMukthaKarnataka”. This petition would be forwarded to BJP National Executive, PM Modi and Amit Shah.

Multiplex in Bengaluru showing step-motherly treatment towards kannada films is not new. We the Samanya Kannadiga team have started this petition against multiples screens in Bengaluru and asking CM of Karnataka to pass a legislation making it mandatory for multiplex in Karnataka to have 50% of screens for kannada movies only. We seek the support of one and all in this matter. *****************Letter To CM*************************** To, The Hon'ble Chief Minister Government of Karnataka Bengaluru This is to bring to your kind notice that a number of Multiplexes are deliberately not showing Kannada movies in Bengaluru city. This is even after several remainders to them over Social media and E-mail to discontinue the practice. This practice of encouraging a movie from a different language and refraining from screening a Kannada movie in many Multiplexes will result in a 'death-knell' to Kannada movie lovers in general and the Kannada Film Industry in particular. Thousands of technicians thrive on the Kannada film industry for their livelihood and such attempts to destabilise the Industry in our own State by a few 'vested interests' for obvious reasons does not augur well for the Industry. Highly acclaimed and award winning Kannada movie, such as 'Thithi' and other Kannada movies which have been doing well is not being screened in these Multiplexes. In this regard, considering the survival of the Industry in general and Kannada language in particular, we request your government to pass a bill to ensure atleast 50% of the screens in Multiplexes are reserved for Kannada movies. We sincerely hope that such a bill is passed at the earliest so that such Multiplexes and business houses do not monopolise by screening non-Kannada movies and thereby creating uneven competition and causing huge losses to those dependent on this Industry.
