Candidates make best use of Sunday

Nominees of prominent parties go door-to-door to reach out to voters

Barely 18 days left for the election to the Lok Sabha, in the State on April 17, candidates belonging to prominent political parties made the best use of Sunday, to reach out to the voters.

Janata Dal (Secular) candidate and former High Court judge Chandrashekaraiah offered puja at the temple of 101 Ganapathi at Agrahara before resuming his canvassing for the day.

Chandrashekaraiah, accompanied by scores of party workers, took out a padayatra, covering Nanjumalige, Jayanagar, K G Koppal and other areas. He sought vote in the name of strengthening the hands of the party supremo H D Deve Gowda.

Significantly, Janata Dal (United), another national party, hit the campaign trail on Sunday. S P Mahadadevappa from Kodagu district, the JD(U) nominee from the constituency, went door-to-door at Gowrishankar Nagar near the foot of Chamundi Hill. Mahadevappa urged the voters to support Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, whom he described as the epitome of development, having a profound concern for the poor.

True to the name of the party, the workers of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), along with their nominee M V Padmamma, met the ‘aam aadmi’ at the Devaraja Market, on Sayyaji Rao road.
BJP candidate Prathapa Simha, who is not leaving any stone unturned to ensure his victory, concentrated on Kodagu district.
