MLC Bhoje Gowda to be JD (S) candidate for Udupi-Chikkamagaluru LS seat?


Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (MS)

Udupi, Mar 14: The Lok Sabha constituency of Udupi-Chikkamagaluru has gone to the JD (S) party in the deal that was sealed on March 13 between the coalition partners of the state government. However, Congress supporters are disappointed in the district as Congress is stronger compared to JD (S) in this constituency.

The district Congress committees of Udupi and Chikkamagaluru held separate meetings on Wednesday, March 13 and expressed their objection. The participants in the Udupi meeting expressed "What is the point in giving the Lok Sabha seat of Udupi-Chikkamagaluru to JD (S), which does not have a single people's representative in the district?" The same sentiment was also poured out in the meeting of the Congress committee that was held in Chikkamagaluru.

Jayaprakash Hegde has negated the rumours that are making rounds since quite some time that he will be the consensus candidate of Congress and JD (S), in case the seat is given to JD (S) by the Congress. With the denial of Jayaprakash Hegde, now all are curious to know who will contest on the JD (S) ticket from this constituency.

V Dhananjay Kumar, who contested on JD (S) ticket in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, died recently. S L Bhoje Gowda, who was the JD (S) candidate in the 2012 elections, is a MLC now. JD (S) did not contest in the 2009 elections. So now there is a strong rumour that S L Bhoje Gowda will be the probable candidate to be fielded by JD (S). In both the 2012 and 2014 elections, JD (S) stood at the third place.

From 1952 till date Congress was contesting independently from the Udupi Lok Sabha constituency. This is the first time that the Congress will not be fielding its candidate in this constituency.

    This phenomenon applies to all seats... Do Congress supporters see them supporting JDS wholeheartedly??? Apply this for all coalition seats in Karnataka.... All seats where JDS is contesting are predominently Congress seats....So its all over.. and advantage BJP everywhere.. including Hassan and Mandya with revolts in ranks in Congress..Gowda family impressions about fielding his family members in winnable seats are creating a situation where ... even they are at risk..

    So in politics... 2+2 is not 4..its the chemistry and not arithmetic which works..

    So ultimately.. Congress shall not expect vote transfer in 20 seats it contests from JDS.... nationalistic views and revolts will help BJP win not less than 22 this time.

    Apply this to SP and BSP in UP... where they fought for long against each other...and what Amit shah tells about " Not less than 74." may seem realistic...

    For those wondering who is this bhoja. Bhoja is none other than chela of kswamy . He was one of the main reason for the defeat of jds leader ysv datta in kadur(chikamagalur).

    What is the logic here. A party which got 14000 votes will fight against BJP. I think Yeddy's estimate of 22 seats will turn correct.

    Strategy is already worked out. MLC Bhoje Gowda do have a chance to win. We people from Mangalore origin are proud people and less flexible. It has both positive and negative aspects. That is why, when it comes to person from other area, it is difficult for us to accept it as our leader in our own soil. I might be right or might be wrong. But it is my observation.

    BJP should Thank Devegowda for this Walk over.

    Let them now give ticket to Sobha or Yashpal or JPhegde, minimum 1 Lac lead is confirmed without any campaign.
    BJP should now focus their time and Money on other constituencies, as 2 seats, are confirmed before hand.

    Dear DW readers from Coastal Karnataka
    Don't look at presence of candidates from your constituency, it is Udupi &Chickmangalruru. The Gowda community is strong in Madikeri and Chickmangalruru. So the result will surprise most of us here.
    But in Mangalore, Mithun Rai will be an ideal candidate, a mass leader, young and people's choice. I wish him all the best..

    If Udupi-Chikkamagaluru is alloted to JDS then this seat is already won by BJP.

    Udupi-Chikkamagaluru fight was only between BJP and Cong.

    If Cong do not contest then it is only BJP, as there are no grass root workers in JDS barring few areas of Chikkamagaluru and only few weeks left for election.

    My humble opinion is that the Congress should have fielded its own candidate in this constituency. I don't even know who this Bhoje is. The Congress is certainly stronger than the JDS here. They have given the BJP candidate victory on a platter. I feel the BJP has won even before the first vote has been cast.
