An INTUC conference has been scheduled as a prelude to Malli's selection as the Congress candidate. It is said that the intention of the conference is to make his candidature official.

"The conference will be held at Kundapur R N Shetty auditorium on Saturday December 9 at 10 am.

Minister Pramod Madhwaraj, minister of mines and geology Vinay Kulkarni, MLA K Gopala Poojary, Vinay Kumar Sorake, Legislative Council chief whip Ivan D' Souza, district congress president Janardhan Thonse and other party leaders will participate," said Rakesh Malli, INTUC Kundapur president Chandra Ameen and Youth INTUC president Ajith Shetty.

    In Kundapura language counts a lot. A person who can talk kundapura kannada can only successfully connect to the people there. Outsiders will no be able to connect. They need a local person there.

    Best of Luck Mr. Rakesh Malli.
    Mr. Jaya Prakash Hegde supposed to be the Congress candidate from Kundapur but unfortunately he was fallen to the BJP's trap and now he is totally disappeared from the public life. Even nobody knows where he is now. Rakesh Malli also good candidate and sure he will win from Kundapur. Since Haladi is contesting from BJP ticket, people will not vote for him due to Modi's GST and Demonetization blunders.
