SHIMOGA: Shimoga MP B.Y. Raghavendra said here on Saturday that he would sanction Rs. 5 lakh out of his Local Area Development Fund for construction of a community welfare hall of the Korama community.
He was speaking after laying the foundation for the community hall at Lagan Mandir here.
Mr. Raghavendra said that the Korama community, which was socially and economically backward, had not been able to get suitable representation. Those members who occupied key posts in education and administration should help the others in the community, he suggested.
MLC and district BJP president R.K. Siddaramanna and president of the City Municipal Council N.J. Rajashekhar, among others, were present.
