Mangalore: Congress announces election committees amid chaos

Mangalore: Cong announces election committees amid chaos

Daijiworld Media Network - Mangalore (VM)

Mangalore, Feb 20: Congress leader and former union minister Janardhan Poojary on Wednesday February 20 said that preparations for the upcoming local body elections are going on in full swing in the Congress.

Briefing the media on his party's poll preparations, Poojary announced the formation of three committees - election publicity committee with 21 members, manifesto committee with 19 members and candidate election committee with 29 members.

He said that everyone's opinion was considered while selecting the members for the committees and that the choices were unanimous.

"This is an important election for the Congress and we will select only those candidates who have been working from the zonal level. Only hard working candidates will be condidered," he said.

"We will take opinions from zonal level block committees and district committees and only then decide on the candidates," he said, adding that Congress will contest for all the 64 seats in Mangalore.

"The nominations will be finalized and filed before February 23," he added.

MLA UT Khader, mayor Gulzar Banu, K S Mohammed Masood, former MLC and president of Jamia Masjid, Kudroli, P V Mohan, J R Lobo, Badruddin, Ivan D’Souza, Mithun Rai, B Ibrahim, T K Sudheer, Kripa Alva among others were present.


Even as the press meet was going on, a minor chaos erupted when former mayor Ashraf raised a protest after finding that his name was missing from the election candidate selection committee.

He alleged that his name had not been considered nor was he consulted while selecting the members, which he said was done arbitrarily.

"Being the Congress block president my name is missing from the members' list. This clearly shows that Janardhan Poojary is against Muslims," he said.

MLA Ramanath Rai assured that the elections are being taken seriously and everyone's opinion will be considered.

MLA U T Khader then intervened in the matter and took Ashraf out, after which the press meet resumed.

Later, speaking to media, Ashraf said that only hard working people should be selected as members, but here the party had left out him and Nagendra of south block.

"I am here for the party's sake or else I would have left long back. Janardhan Poojary is against Muslims - till he is there, the party cannot progress," he lashed out.

"This is injustice to Muslims. I am not interested in power or position, but only in getting representation for my community and my people. I am working for the party," he said.

AAP (AAM AADMI PARTY) would have been the best choice. But they are just building their party led by Arvind Kejriwal. AAP will not be contesting this State Election but will be all set in days to come. Give them a chance.

Guys... think beyond religion. Don't set barriers.

The people who blame BJP for their Hindutva mantra, are fighting for representation from their own religion... pathetic.
Once you loose election & sit at home, then you will realize your mistakes.
If Poojari is against muslims, how come, some other muslim leaders are members of committee...?

Poojary taking revenge for Ashraf criticizing poojary on saffron shawl issue... Poojary failed to yield billava youth for congress.. next election better for congress to prefer some other candidate over poojary

Every politician is very cunningly clever like Azheruddin. When they are about to be exposed of any wrong doing, they play the religion card.

About Poojary: One thing which is to be appreciated about him is that he is non-communal and a follower of Congress, in all times, unlike many other politicians who are showing monkey game when the election nears.

After seeing this video, I am fully convinced that the crimes such as drug abuse/spoiling the innocent girls which were reported against a politician was right. Daiji had also reported a case where the criminal took shelter in that politician's house and there was a big galata when police arrested that politician.

Hi all BJP Fans for your kind information Truth has just come out from reliable sources that Ashraf was been
motivated by BJP members to go against Congress. BJP was well aware that Ashraf was sidelined due to the drug case of his son. Shameless BJP fans are still hoping that BJP will come to power again.

Anil , Mangalore
Thursday, February 21, 2013

Mr. Ashraf was a staunch supporter of Poojary till recent. It is known to everyone that Poojary does not use his influence for any illegal activity. When Mr. Ashraf's son was arrested for wrong doings, he wanted poojary to use his influence to come out of the police case. But poojary denied to help in that case. After that Ashraf become critic of Poojary. If it was not Poojary, any other politician would have used his power to help his supporter. It is difficult to find such a politician in present politics. Hats off to him.

GERALD, Modankap I really feel like Laughing at your statement and you are a classical example of how elections work in India .How come there are 170 seats in Mangalore Muncipality when actual No of seats is 64 If I am correct and you have 9 people agree for your Comment .Devare gathi People like you are easy targets for the Clever politicians

AAP must watch all this infighting and drama and go purely democratic when its chance comes. It is unfortunate that the elections are coming in few months and AAP is not contesting in Karnataka. General voters have no option. Congress and BJP both are exposed. AAP must speak to its cadre to support who ever is clean from any party or independent candidate and AAP must announce the same through it website and press conference.

@S.Ramesh Nayak,Mangalore
Dear Sri Nayak,
Best person with clean records not necessarily the best adminstrator/performer.A sincere/hard working/pain taking clerk in a bank need not become and will not become even a Chief Manager due to his good attributes.Best performer/administrator needs dinamism and capability to manage every situation at every time.By looking at Lobo mams body language I do not think that he is be best suited person for local body/state assembly .Of course he may be a very good person.Politics is a field essentially combination of verious attributes good/bad to become successful.He may be best person for back office works.

I was surprised to listen the way/style of talking by Ashraf ex-Mayor of Mangalore.It is just rowdi style and reminds "Rowdi Rathod "movie dialogue.He cant even talk Kannada language properly.What could be expected from these type MCC members.I complement Daiji for capturing the event and dispalying the style of functioning of Congress committe at mangalore and its members !

This nataka in Congress will end soon. But what about the nataka in BJP??

Just read a while ago, i read that a lot of leaders from BJP are leaving the party across Karnataka and joining other parties like JDS, Congress and KJP. Guess the BJP leaders themselves have realized that the party has no agenda and future in Karnataka.

People of karnataka are fed up with the maladministration, corruption, moral policing and communalism of BJP.

Dinesh Poojary ji...i dont know if it practically will happen or not but your analysis on the actions of the 3 committies diffinitly brought a smile in my face maarayre after a stressfull day at office.
It may happen may be if we put Ivn Dsza in one committie & Mr Ashraf in another and Janaradhan Poojaaryji in the third one that is the candidate committe or something.

ISMAIL.K.PERINJE, PERINJE-YANBU/KSA...I am not here to defend BJP or say thay their Dose Thuthu is bigger or smaller than congress w/r/t to this infighting, its common in all parties during election time. But for your Information, your another fake product in the market about" alleged Renuka-Somanna Guddhata" was a fake news aired only by that too Suvarna under the directions of Yeddi as he was dissapointed that Somanna dint join KJP. For doing that the staff of Suvarna has already got "Dharmadhetu" from Somannas supportors same day, and the respective leaders have clarified nothing that sort of has happend as Somanna was attending some public functions when such alleged incedent took place. The channel also has appologised for that. You seem to have your sources in the town giving you field informations, kindly ask them if you have any reliable back home. Or may be even you know the truth but dont want to accept it as you only like to propogate what you belive in weather its true or not true. Know your facts right.

The Congress is losing in Mangalore because of Janardhana Poojary. He should retire decently and allow someone new to take over. If he continues the Congress will lose again. Janardhana Poojary has no base.

I am not saying there is no infighting in BJP. But it is only 5% of congress. DVS missed core committe meeting. Already people are pacifying him and he will be alright in 2-3 days. In fact he is going to be our party president.

But dissatisfied BJP people will never work against party. In congress it is opposite. Your congress, after back stabbing people of this country, now they backstab their own people.

Congress and secularism, congress and Good governance, congress and anti corruption Hahaha same like Usman byaari and Gokulastami!. This time also after election will release press release " Because of janadhana Poojari Victory KAI JAARI HOYTU"

"Poojary announced the formation of three committees - election publicity committee with 21 members, manifesto committee with 19 members and candidate election committee with 29 members."
