Udupi: Congress workers pray that Siddaramaiah becomes CM

Daijiworld Media Network – Udupi (DV)

Udupi, Apr 8: While the state Congress has said that the decision to not announce its CM candidate is part of its poll 'strategy', some of the party workers in Udupi are hoping that the coveted post would be held by their leader Siddaramaiah.

In a gesture that would perhaps gladden the state opposition leader who underwent a surgery recently, a few Congress workers here offered coconuts to god, praying that Siddaramaiah would be next the chief minister. They also prayed for his good health.

The party workers offered special prayers and coconuts at Parkala Mahalingeshwara Temple here on Monday April 8.

"Siddaramaiah is contesting from Varuna constituency; hence, along with his victory he should hold power and be the chief minister," said one of the partymen.

"I pray that Siddaramaiah wins by a majority of votes and becomes the chief minister, and sanctions good budget for development of the coastal belt," said Ganeshraj Saralabettu, a Congress worker.

    Mr Siddaramaiah is a good and mass leader who was insrumental in bringing togher the AAhinda. As a finance Minister he gave a good budget which was growth oriented. He may a Kuruba leader but he has not hated other communities. In today's politics which politician has not played the card of caste? The OBCs too have a right to be CM But wait and see whether he will be allowed by other aspirants who will join with Kummi( son in law of Kudla) and his father Mannina maga

    When Election comes , Gods are in great demand. Because politicians thinks that just like God-men, Swamis & Astrologers, even GOD himself is also corrupt and He can be manipulated by offering money or jewelery. Katju said 90% of the voters are Sheep herds in India. Here Katju may be wrong. But I feel that 90% of the Indians are utter foolish when it comes to understanding the meaning of God.

    Persons like Siddaramaiah will never be accepted as mass representative as he is prejudicial towards certain sectionss of the soceity......This time I am sure that in the evnt Congress forming the govt CM probables are Ramanath Rai,UdupiMP J.P.Hegde,Parameshwar ..... Siddaramaiah's chance only if KJP conforms part of the Cong front.....

    Whichever Party comes to power in Karnataka, but for sure we need CM, Eduction and Home Ministers from our region only. Why Siddu, can’t they get better person in Congress? Why not CM from Coastal Area? Siddu is the person filled with venom in his body towards upper castes. We need well qualified, non-corrupt and highly dignified person as CM which is most unlikely available candidate from Congress or JDS!!

    Even Yeddy was clean before he became CM. Siddu is highly casteist and will be giving favors for his kuruba community.basically we will see the repeat of what yeddy did to the lingayat community. Please bring S M Krishna or Kharge

    I do not mind Siddhu as CM. He condemned church attacks openly. Till date no BJP MP/ MLA (according to several good men, but lacked spine to condemn wrong when it was utterly wrong!) did so including Mangalore MP/Ybhat. All these men are NP. Lack courage and scared of unemployed goondaraj of bhajrang!! Do we need such unethical representing us? Full marks to Siddu calling it wrong when it was wrong!!!!

    Instead of worshiping God they should worship voters, and respect the feelings of voters, and take oath in front this same God that they will not Cheat Voters and they will not resort to corrupt.
    Election Season is always the season fake Bhakti to God all over the State. Real Bhakti is never exhibited openly

    Me too in favure of Siddaramaya, he is brilliant and clean politician with long vision. When Dharam Singh was CM he presented the best Budget Karnataka never had. God bless Siddaramaya. We will have a wonderfull people friendly govt this time. People will forget the bad memories of BJP govt. Karnataka public has to give clear mandate, else it will be like UPA central govt which has to bear consequences corruption scandals of DMK. Black Mail from SP, ADMK n BSP. of course Trinamol congress.
