Mangaluru: Congress Party Will Win ZP and TP With Majority – MLC Ivan D’Souza

Mangaluru: MLC Ivan D’Souza held a press meet at the District Congress Office here, on February 18.

Addressing the mediapersons, Ivan said, “Congress Party will win the coming ZP and TP elections with a majority. The independent poll predictions conducted by us show that Congress will win 30 out of 36 seats in ZP and 80-90 seats out of 136 seats in TP.”

He said that there were reasons to see such projections as BJP had failed to implement people friendly projects in their past term in TP. “Locally BJP has failed to fulfil the promises made by their own central government to the public. None of the promises given to farmers, industries and workers are delivered. When the international crude oil prices slumped to $28 per barrel from the previous high of $138 per barrel, the resulting ripple should have benefited the common man in terms of subsidies. But BJP has not delivered the subsidy to the public and as a result the prices of essential commodities remain high,” he said.

“This press meet is not a violation of the model code of conduct as I am not a candidate and it is my right to express my views and it is the right of the media to publish my views,” he added.
