Bengaluru: The state Congress criticised disqualified MLA H Vishwanath for seeking separate Hunsur district.

Addressing presspersons KPCC president Dinesh Gundu Rao said, “Vishwanath requested Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa to bifurcate the Mysore district in the wake of Bypolls just to fool the people of Hunsur. He is trying to play with the sentiments of people.”

” Vishwanath was silent on the issue in his long political career but now raising the issue for electoral mileage,” he added.

Vishwanath on Monday requested S Yediyurappa to bifurcate the Mysore district.

Vishwanath met the chief minister to put forth his demand to declare Hunsur, a city in Mysore district, a separate district consisting of Krishnarajanagara, Saligrama, Piriyapatna and Heggadadevankote taluq.

He said that there is a long pending demand to make a new district and asserted that it must be done for the betterment for the administrative divisions. Vishwanath further demanded that Hunsur be named after former Chief Minister Devaraj Urs.
