Udupi: Jayaprakash Hegde’s Supporters to Cast Votes in Favour of BJP

Udupi: Korgi Jayaprakash Hegde, former member of Lok Sabha from Udupi-Chikkamagaluru constituency, had been denied of a Congress ticket to contest the legislative council election held some time ago.

Disappointed over the party’s disregard for his clean image and experience, Hegde contested as an independent and lost. The party took disciplinary action by expelling him from the party.

He has a large number of supporters here, led by Hegde’s close associate, Brahmavar block unit’s former president and former president of Varamballi gram panchayat Rajesh Shetty Birti.

Their bloc has decided to vote against Congress. The BJP being the only alternative in the fray, they have resolved, just as a one-off case, to cast their votes in its favour in the ZP and TP elections to be held on Saturday.

It is only because of lack of resources that the group has not fielded any candidates, he says.

Nevertheless, he asserts that there is no possibility of their joining the BJP. The group has decided to tread cautiously for the time being and decide on the future course of action after the ZP-TP elections.

At the same time, he adds that in no circumstances will they go back to Congress, while giving a hint that Hegde will soon announce his future course of action.


  1. Hegde and his supportres should join strong party like BJP and contest in udupi for the next general election ( MLA or Mp) , so that congress will loose 100 % against their bad candidates who can travel in front of people in luxury cars taking poor peoples vote and money. even PM of India and CM’s travel normal cars… how can a ordinary MLA travel in roles roys cars ,,,,,,
