This Video was out 9 months back and six months back I had gone to the court against the video. I don’t know how the news channel got the video. These kind of allegations are common in the public life and I am not bothered about it. The Krishna Mukya Prana is always with me and I will surely contest the coming assembly elections. I will also answer to all the allegations through the court of law”.
Shiroor Math Sri Lakshmivara Theertha Swamiji, on Saturday, announced his decision to contest the elections either as an independent candidate or as a BJP nominee. The Swamiji decided to contest the elections since the politicians had failed to respond to the grievances of the people, the local leaders of the BJP in Udupi have also failed to reach out to the people. He said he will contest as an independent but would contest as a BJP candidate if the party offer him a ticket. The Swamiji also said that the district in-charge Minister Pramod Madhwaraj, had introduced several pro-people programmes, the Swamiji said.
