Udupi: Pramod Madhwaraj cheated Cong, defeat him – KPCC chief Shivakumar

Daijiworld Media Network – Udupi (MS)

Udupi, Jan 22: “Pramod Madhwaraj has deceived the Congress party. He should be defeated in the elections from wherever he contests,” said D K Shivakumar, president of KPCC.

Seaking at the Prajadwani Convention that was held in the city on Sunday, he further said, “We made Pramod Madhwaraj the minister. But he deceived us and joined the BJP. But not a single worker of Congress joined the BJP. So I congratulate all the Congress workers."

He said, “Congress party made father, mother and son as MLA and ministers. What more is required? Will BJP give Pramod a ticket to contest? But you people have to defeat him from whichever party he contests."

The KPCC chief said, "This yatra is being held to know the plight and opinion of people. In coastal area we were represented in all constituencies. Now only one MLA is there. This is painful. Those who have forgotten history cannot create history at all."

Shivakumar said, “BJP is selling all public enterprises and property to private individuals. Brahmavar sugar factory is scrapped. This is the real tragedy. They say theirs is a double engine government. Which promise have they kept? Fishermen did not get kerosene. What did the coastal region get in the global investors convention? No one is ready to invest in coastal Karnataka. As the communal poison has been sown by the BJP, no one is interested to come to coastal districts for education."

“BJP workers are dying holding trishul. None of the sons of the ministers will be killed. Only the sons of poor people are being sacrificed. Nalin, Shobha, Bommai and Yediyurappa have to answer. During Covid-19, BJP made money in vaccines," he said.

“Karnataka BJP government is branded as a 40% government. The government has not sent anyone to the houses of those who died because of oxygen shortage during the Covid-19 pandemic. They could not even give the dead body of MP Suresh Angadi to his family members," he said.

“People want change. We have decided to give Rs 2000 to the women. Now BJP will say that they will do this also. Why they have not thought of this earlier? Udupi district, which used to stand first in education is in 17th spot now,” he said.

    Keeping Madhwaraj issue aside, Congress should have strengthened their party in coastal 15-20 years back. Only showing up during the election will not help. Only option now is strengthening party in grass root level and need to give tickets to professional candidates, the result may yield after 1-2 elections, not immediately

    Instead of criticizing Pramod Madhwaraj as a cheater, congress partyhas to introspect why people are leaving the party and take corrective measures. It is not only Pramod Madhwaraj but many have left congress at state level in various states and also at central level. You cannot brush them aside as opportunists. What is happening with Sachin Pilot in Rajasthan? There are many examples like this. You need to handle this issue effectively. Then only Congress will grow.

    Pramod's betrayal will go down as the greatest in the history of Udupi congress... Seemingly ungrateful behavior will not make him a welcome face in bajapa either... Bhatta will never allow him in Udupi... Lalaji is strong in Kaup... Kundapur is a far fetched story... Only route is MLC but he may face a lot of ire as he is a rank outsider without much public support... Also there are plenty hungry stomachs in bajapa itself....

    This Pramod will never get seat in BJP. Real party changer. His mother manorama was in Congress since many many years. After her this her son came in Congress party. And now he changed the party as changing clothes. Don’t take him back to Congress even he wants to come back. Now he will remain as na gharka na ghatka.

    DKS Ji, you are absolutely right, Madhwaraj family cheated Congress and Congress is also responsible for giving the entire family first priority while giving ticket to contest elections!!! They deceived the congress supporters in changing the party's. There are many capable leaders in Congress but they don't have MONEY power like Madhu family. Certainly he must be defeated for EVER.
