District Congress demands Party Candidate to Contest Udupi–Chikkamagaluru LS Constituency

Udupi: The Udupi district Congress on March 14, demanded the party high command to allow the Congress candidate to contest the Chikkamagaluru Lok Sabha constituency.

As per the agreement between Congress and JD(S) the Udupi – Chikkamagaluru seat has been reserved to the JD(S) which was created a lot of anguish between the Congress party workers.

The District Congress committee held an emergency meeting at the Congress Bhavan on Thursday, March 14. The meeting was chaired by the district Congress president Ashok Kumar Kodavoor.

Speaking on the occasion Ashok Kumar Kodavoor said, “in Udupi – Chikkamagaluru Lok Sabha constituency the JD(S) party has no peoples’ representatives in the Panchayat level and is also not active at the block level. But the Congress party has active leaders at the booth level and has strong leadership in the district. The Congress party had organized the Parivarthan Yatre and huge numbers of party workers had participated. The Congress party has a certain number of voters with popular support. The party candidates were also elected in the past Lok Sabha elections. The present BJP MP Shobha Karandlaje has been facing opposition within the party and this time the Congress is in a favorable situation. With all this background the party leaders should change their decision and allow the Congress candidate to contest the Lok Sabha elections from Udupi – Chikkamagaluru constituency”, he said.

KPCC general secretary M A Gafoor, District Congress general secretary Narashimma Moorthy, Kishan Hegde Kolkebail, Sarasu D Bangera, Vice President Prakyath Shetty, District Youth Congress President Vishwas Ameen, Congress leaders Yathish Karkera, Harish Shetty, Bhaskar Rao Kidiyoor, Shekar Madivala, Manjunath Poojary, Sathish Ameen Padukere, Shanker Kundar, Malyadi Shivaram Shetty, Naveenchandra Suvarna, Geetha Wagle, Janardhan Bhandarkar, Ramesh Kanchan, Vignesh Kini, Sathish Poojary, Chandrika Shetty were present during the meeting.
