'Fight unitedly for Assembly elections'

District -in-Charge Minister Kota Srinivas Poojary has called upon the BJP workers to work unitedly for the victory of its candidates in the Assembly elections.

Speaking at a felicitation programme on Sunday, he said that the BJP has lost in the CMC elections. But the workers should not feel disheartened by the loss. “Inspite of taking up development work, owing to the gimmick of the opposition party, the BJP had suffered a set back in the CMC. Losing in an election is not permanent. There is a need to unite the workers in every booth.”

MLA Raghupathy Bhat said that the party workers should visit each and every house in 35 wards to thank the voters in the CMC limits. The Congress was mired in corruption in the past. Now, with 12 members team, the BJP should emerge as the strongest opposition party in the CMC.

The BJP’s loss in the election is unexpected inspite of giving transparent administration. The BJP need to introspect on the reason for the loss. “We have lost about 3,260 votes. There is a need to strengthen the party by winning additional votes in the Assembly elections,” he said.

The CMC had received Rs 136 crore grant from the state government in the last six years. The MLA said “the MP who has been elected from the Congress from Udupi-Chikmagalur constituency has not done any concrete work in the last one year.

Now, he is promising of mono rail from Kinnimulki to Manipal. Before taking up the work on mono rail, let the MP work towards completion of the widening of National Highway.”
