Former MP Jayaprakash Hegde

Former Member of Parliament K Jayaprakash Hegde has said that he would contest the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections from the Udupi-Chikmagaluru constituency if the BJP gives him ticket.

He was addressing a press conference during a private programme at Shivapura in Hebri on Saturday.

“I am a ticket aspirant and am confident that the party will consider my candidature looking at my capacity. I have been in constant touch with the voters and the party workers from Udupi and Chikkamagaluru,” said Hegde.
