Kottari said that the BJP will place before the voters on the achievement of the State government.

The process of selecting candidates for eight assembly constituencies has begun. “We are confident that the voters will bless the BJP in the State,” he said.

BJP former president Prathapsimha Nayak said that the ULB poll results was a warning bell to the BJP to set right the loopholes in the system. The ULB poll results will not have any impact on the Assembly polls, he claimed and added that BJP leaders will fight unitedly for its victory.


Kottari said that former union minister Janardhan Poojary had administered an oath to the newly elected corporators against corruption.

Corruption charges against Union Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas Veerappa Moily hit the headlines on the following day of administering oath. The UPA government has been involved in series of corruption cases including 2G spectrum, Commonwealth, Helicopter, loan waive off scheme and so on. Now, Moily’s corruption too has been added to the list of corruption charges, he said.

What can one expect from the UPA government which had tried to suppress the anti-corruption campaigns of Anna Hazare and Baba Ramdev. What Janardhan Poojary has to say on the corruption charges? he asked.

Welcoming the move of the State government to sanction Kumki land to the farmers, he said that about three lakh farmers in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts will benefit from the move of the State government.
