Daijiworld Media Network - Moodbidri

Moodbidri, May 15: The Bharatiya Janatha Party opened its account in the crucial assembly elections with its Candidate from Moodbdri constituency Umanath Kotian won by more than 22,000 votes by defeating his rival Abhaya Chandra Jain of Congress. Umanath Kotian secured 51351 votes followed by Abhaychandra Jain with 31371 votes.

Meanwhile, the Congress party has retained the Ullal Assembly Constituency seat with its candidate U T Khader winning the assembly election. He defeated his nearest BJP rival Santhosh Kumar Rai by 35,594 votes. Santhosh Rai Boliyar secured 20561 votes followed by K Ashraf from the JD(S) who secured 2028 votes.

Speaking to Daijiworld, an elated U T Khader said, “I am thankful to voters of my constituency. BJP tried for communal polarization in my constituency, but matured people ignored their attempts. We will discuss seriously about the defeat of our candidates. We seek vote in the basis of development. We do not know why people rejected our candidates in the district. We should seriously think about our election strategy. Because the candidates of BJP who nothing did for society won this election.”

Congress’ Abhaychandra Jain said, “I accept defeat humbly. I never expected this result. But I have to accept the result. It is given by people in a democratic way.

“There was no groupism in Moodbidri Congress. We all worked in unity for the victory of Congress.

“I will remain in the constituency as a social worker. There is no question of retirement in politics. Since 40 years, I have always worked for my people. Will continue doing the same,” he said.

Counting of votes is being held at Mahatma Gandhi Centenary Higher Primary School, Bondel (Belthangady, Moodbidri and Mangaluru North) and Mahatma Gandhi Centenary PU College, Bondel (Mangaluru South, Mangaluru, Bantwal, Puttur and Sullia).

    Karnataka Election:
    Results are out BJP will rule State, Definitely with Good support from Central Hope Karnataka will have great Hope. If the Election was based on development there was no Chance for BJP but unfortunately NAMO Virus has spread across the country unfortunately literate, illiterate are victim.
    Taking about Gandhi Family & Asking the Congress has done to Country from Last 60 years is a baseless Question, unfortunately we should ask ourselves what we are today is Just After 2014 ?

    Congratulations to Mr. Umanath Kotian. There is too much goondagiri in the Mulki-Moodabidri constituency, please look after it. When people question the corrupt practices, they have been made to roam around police stations by filing fake police complaints against them. My friend is a victim of such corrupts.

    1. Forcefull celebration of Tippu Jayanthi to appease a certain community
    2. Openly announcing that he consumed fish prior entering at Dharmasthala and has no problem
    3. Various Bhagyas for only certain communities
    4. Accquital of minorities from crime 'mugda alpasankyatharu' sheme
    5. Trying to divide Hindus thru a separation of Lingayats
    6. Lawlessness, Lankesh murderers yet to be caught/or on hold to blame BJP /RSS.
    7. Turnign Blore to a garbage city full of pot holes resulting in many deaths-

    These are the predominant causes that made Siddu lose his chair. Bye Bye.

    It has been proved by the smart and intelligent people of this great state of Karnataka that
    1. Appeasement politics will not work anymore - Tipu Jayanti and Ahinda
    2. Do not play with religion (trying to break it - Lingayats and then Patels in Gujurat)
    3. Get a good leadership (not Pappu) someone else from outside the family..
    If congress fails to learns its lessons or else will be wiped out and will be history

    Religion is more important than development in our country. Siddaramayya should have understood this and should have avoided unnecessary provocation of majority community by celebrating Tippu jayanthi, giving various bhagyas for only a particular community. Appeasement of any particular community is not good for the society as a whole.
