MLA KM Uday also voiced his concerns about the town's developmental issues. He alleged that town development had been disregarded since the tenure of former Chief Minister SM Krishna. During Krishna's leadership, vital initiatives, including the Cauvery drinking water project, drainage system establishment, government office construction, and irrigation projects, were executed. In an indirect critique, MLA KM Uday pointed out that the neglect of development occurred during the tenure of former MLAs D.C. Tammanna and Kalpana Siddharaju.
Consequently, the town needs to catch up in development, falling nearly two decades short. MLA KM Uday pledged to secure necessary government grants and prioritise town development in the days ahead. The event also saw the presence of KPCC member Kadalur Ramakrishna, municipal council members Sachin, Siddaraj, Manoj, Kokila Aruna, Priyanka, Pramila, former president MC Basavaraju, Imtiaz Ullakhan, District Congress Vice President Hombayya, and leaders Siddaraj and Avinash.
