Vivek Raj Poojary among key Congress contenders for upcoming Lok Sabha polls

Daijiworld Media Network- Mangaluru (VP)

Mangaluru, Feb 24: As Lok Sabha elections approach, Congress eyes youthful contender for Dakshina Kannada, historically a stronghold for BJP, represented by Nalin Kumar Kateel since 2009. With the aim of presenting a formidable challenge, Congress considers candidates like Vivek Raj Poojary to invigorate the campaign.

Vivek emerges as a leading contender for the upcoming elections, drawing attention for his proactive leadership and notable contributions to the party. Recognized by the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) for his dedication, Vivek's pivotal role in overseeing Chikkamagaluru town during the last general election underscores his effectiveness. His efforts were instrumental in securing victory for Congress in Chikkamagaluru, highlighting his significant contribution to the party's success.

Vivek's name resonates strongly in Dakshina Kannada, potentially heralding a comeback for Congress in the region with the support of a dynamic young candidate. Known for its commitment to nurturing young talent, Congress recognizes Vivek Raj as a valuable asset, given his consistent contributions to the party over the past few years. Hailing from the Billawa community, Vivek's candidacy also aligns with the community's aspirations for representation, further bolstering his appeal and potential to galvanize support in the upcoming elections.

Vivek has cultivated strong relationships with both state and central leaders, earning recognition from the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) for his commendable work. As a young and dynamic leader, Vivek inspires fellow youngsters and demonstrates exceptional prowess in the political arena. His ability to motivate and engage with the youth sets him apart, positioning him as a promising leader poised to excel in the political landscape.

Vivek, fondly known as the ‘Sonu Sood of Mangaluru’, is a prominent figure within the Billawa community, actively engaged in its empowerment. As the CEO of Panama company, Vivek's remarkable achievements have garnered widespread recognition, earning him prestigious accolades from organizations like the WFF. Notably, he is the second individual from Karnataka to receive such an honour.

Under Vivek's leadership, Panama company has experienced remarkable growth since its inception in 2006, expanding its operations overseas and achieving a valuation of over 100 crores. With an impressive 60% year-on-year increment, the company's success story is a testament to Vivek's vision and strategic acumen.

Furthermore, Vivek's endeavours extend beyond business ventures. His involvement in projects like the PMIC iron ore work and the acquisition of 2800 acres in Kemmangundi in 2013 highlights his commitment to driving progress and development in the region. Vivek's continued dedication has solidified his reputation and popularity, making him a respected and influential figure in Mangaluru and beyond.

Panama's notable contributions extend beyond borders, with significant endeavours in Zimbabwe elevating their reputation in the iron ore sector. Vivek's active participation in international platforms like the G20 summit and the World Economic Forum underscores his commitment to global engagement and collaboration. These ventures further solidify Panama's position as a key player in the global arena, showcasing their expertise and impact on a broader scale.

    It took 30 years to transform Mangalore to be a BJP strong fort. Now just in 2 months before election , you plan a change ? No way maan!!!. Its just too late. If Congress was really serious, they should have launched Vivek, 3 years ago for this role. Conducting rallies and meet people in house to house visit would have paved a way for a tough opponent to Nalin.

    Good choice, I was afraid that they’d still be considering non performer’s (JRLobo , Ramnath Rai & the like) based on religious / money factor. NK will need the well earned rest. Mangalore needs a young and dynamic MP with a vision , enough of communal turmoil last decade.
