BJP will not resort to hate politics: Udupi district unit president

Udupi BJP district unit President Mattaru Rathnakar Hegde speaks to reporters on Wednesday.

BJP district unit president Mattaru Rathnakar Hegde said that the BJP will not resort to hate politics.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, he said that the previous Congress-led government had made BJP workers face inconvenience in various ways. However, BJP will not resort to hate politics, he assured.

Hegde said the BJP will prioritise development. All measures will be taken to fulfil the promises made in the election manifesto. All the five MLAs will be called for a meeting every month to discuss on the development in each constituency, Hegde said.

The BJP district unit president said that the BJP has created history by winning five seats in Udupi district.

Hegde reminisced that in the last Assembly election, the Congress had won three while BJP got one with BJP Karkala candidate Sunil Kumar.

Haladi Srinivas Shetty had contested as an Independent candidate in Kundapur.

As the Congress was in power and Byndoor, Kaup and Udupi constituencies were in the hands of the Congress, it was a challenge for the BJP to win, he said.

“BJP national president Amit Shah’s meeting with the fishermen at Malpe and central leaders in Shakthi Kendra had boosted the morale of the party workers. There was a new wave in the district after Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a rally. We had carried out an awareness campaign on the achievements of the Central government among the voters, which proved a plus point for the BJP,” he explained. He said that the party workers were strengthened at the grassroots level.

Page Pramukh (page referred to is the printed page of the electoral rolls in every booth), the formation of the Shakthi Kendra by comprising four booths helped the victory of all the five constituencies in Udupi district, Hegde said.

“The Assembly election result has given a direction to the Lok Sabha polls which will be held next year. The BJP is confident of winning the City Municipal Council polls in the future,” Hegde said.

“The Modi wave has not lessened, which has been proved in the Assembly, Zilla Panchayat and Taluk Panchayat elections in the recent past,” the district unit president of the party told reporters here.
