Give 25 days for Voice of Youth and Development, I will serve you for 5 Years – Mithun Rai
Mangaluru: “I am overwhelmed and have no words to express. My parents brought me to this world and have dedicated me to serve the society. I would like to thank my parents and also the people of this district for making me Mithun Rai from a Booth level worker. When the aspirants’ list was sent to the high command my name was included along with senior leaders J R Lobo, Vinay Kumar Sorake, Ramanath Rai, Kanachur Monu, Moideen Bava, Ivan D’Souza. They took me to Delhi and said that they are not the aspirants but demanded to give me the ticket. I will not forget their help until my last breath”, said MP candidate Mithun Rai during the Congress party workers meet at the Town Hall here on March 25.
Addressing the gathering Mithun Rai said, “I have garlanded the statue of Dr B R Ambedkar and I am here with you. Mithun Rai will not put the people of this district to shame, but I will work to make the people of this district proud with my deeds. We have 25 days for the elections. You should all make a pledge because this is not Mithun Rai contesting but the voice of the DK youth contesting the elections, the voice of the backward class, Dalits, minority and youth, the voice of equality and the voice of development contesting the elections. If you want changes in the politics and need a bright future I request the people of the district to vote for development of the DK. Our district is popular for unity and harmony. If we want to retain the principles of Sri Narayana Guru, Jesus Christ and Mohammed Paigamber we need to elect a candidate who has secular credentials.”
Mithun further said, “Today we have leaders from the coalition party Amarnath Shetty, Mohammed Kunhi, District JD(S) youth president Akshith Suvarna and other leaders here to support me. I would like to tell you that you have given 28 years to BJP, now I request you to give me an opportunity to serve you. I will strive hard to create jobs for the youth. Many Asha workers, nurses and youth do not have job security. I will work hard to provide them justice and also work to retain the Vijaya Bank from merging with the Bank of Baroda. Many youths after their studies go out of the country in search of jobs. I assure the youth that I will work to create jobs in the district. I urge all of you to give me your 25 days and I will serve you for 5 years”.
Mithun also said, “I would like to thank Dinesh Gundu Rao, Siddaramaiah, Dr G Parameshwar, Janardhan Poojary and other leaders for giving me an opportunity to contest the LS Polls. My guru who always taught me that “The leader is the one who creates leaders and not followers”. I would like to thank my guru D K Shivakumar and Congress president Rahul Gandhi for giving me an opportunity to contest the elections. I was a booth level worker from where I have grown and today I have been given the ticket to contest the LS Polls and an opportunity to serve the people of my district”.
