Members of the Congress party, MLC Ivan D’Souza, DK district minister in-charge B Ramanath Rai, Udupi district minister in-charge Vinay Kumar Soarke, MLA Moideen Bava and others accompanied Congress candidate Pratapchandra Shetty to file his nomination. Later, speaking to mediapersons about the differences between party members over the MLC nominations, Pratapchandra said, “I had written a letter stating that I won’t be standing for election this time as I had many other times. I had decided to do so, so that others would also get a chance. But since the workers and leaders of the party are insisting me to contest in the elections, I have responded to it positively and have filed my nomination”.

After filing his nomination, addressing the mediapersons, Jayaprakash Hegde said that he has filed his nomination as an independent candidate. “I have not left the Congress, but I am not filing as a party member. The issue here is that the party has given the ticket to someone who has been telling from six years, ‘I won’t stand for election’.”

Asked if he would let another able candidate get the ticket instead of him, he replied, “Surely, I would. The question is not about me here. It is about letting ‘people friendly’ candidates to contest in the election. Is there no other able candidate in the eyes of the party in the whole constituency?” he questioned.


    • Original R.Pai – “What exactly these MLCs do? Answer – Nothing!!!”

      Very sorry for his state of mind. He questions about things which is known under the law of the land. He is under the illusion that he is doing some original research. Ultimately, has begun to talk to himself. He is not talking to any body else on the cell phone. Literally to himself. We should do some thing immediately. For, he is our dear friend, you know!
