    Mr Lobo, Ivan, Naveen , UT Kadher etc.....Be very careful as these party members who are joining from BJP , JDS etc may be spy's as they are entering just before the elections. Just be cautious and do not leak your party secrets.SPY's are there everywhere....Make sure that there is no corruption involved , no money and alcohol distributed as they may spy on your party and get the Candidate disqualified.

    It is better if some people stay where they are - they do not want development nor do they want to develop.

    BJP : Its hightime you sing 'Alvida - Mangalore' since its guaranteed failure for BJP due to its negative attitude on sensitive religious issues in the region. JRL will lift the flag of Congress flying high.

    Any party with secular credentials will play a major role in Karnataka polls and also in 2014 general election. India emerging into a super power and needs secular parties to strengthen global precence. People of this country will decide the future wisely.

    Mr. J. R. Lobo is going win with a huge majority of votes in the coming election. Many are going to bury their political affinity and going to march with him. All the best wishes and prayers.

    First part of the election is party brawl as a show piece or you can call it a drama.
    Next part is hugging each other as fake it could be to make believe that they are friends.
    Now comes election time and the charity begins with liqour,sarees and other commodities.
    Now real fun starts the celebration of loss and gain with real fights by the supporters while winners and losers having party and dinner of high value inside expensive hotels while supporter spending life inside jail cells and on hospital beds. Hurray Election Indian style

    ISMAIL.K.PERINJE, PERINJE-YANBU/KSASunday, you are obsessed with Congress party. The present congress is not the same like the times of Late Mrs Indira Gandhi & Mr. Rajeev Gandhi, were people had a trust and they did their level best to deliver people's expectation. The present congress is filled with corrupt people perfect example is congress led UPA Govt at centre. How could you trust this party. It is giving tickets to party hoppers and useless fellows and sons and daughters of central ministers. There is a lot of discontent in Karnataka assembly congress ticket distribution, perfect example is in Mandya were Film star Ambarish is stepping a side from contesting, giving Mr. Bava M'lore north ticket is a blunder. Do you expect us to support this party. BJP in Karnataka is corrupt house, everyone knows about it. but at least they have learn't their mistake, but too late now for them.

    Congress, BJP, JD(S) and all other parties and their members are crooks except few good one.

    Please vote sensibly not on party, religion, caste etc. If candidate is really good, clean and we can trust vote for him.

    Jeevan Mangalore-It is the party ideology one has to accept.You can become congress if you accept secular ideology or BJP if you are communal.Look at Sanjay Nirupama,Rane in Maharastra.Once Sonia critics became congress leaders after accepting her leadership.You can also change your heart any time.
