Kundapur: Former MLA Halady Srinivas Shetty decides to contest alone

Kundapur: Former MLA Halady Srinivas Shetty decides to contest alone
With Inputs from Silvester D'Souza
Daijiworld Media Network – Kundapur (SP)
Kundapur, Mar 22:
Halady Srinivas Shetty, who had cemented BJP’s position in this constituency by working hard, becoming popular, and winning successive elections from here, and recently resigned from his post and primary membership of the party for being neglicted during the cabinet formation by chief minister Jagadish Shettar, has decided to contest in the coming assembly election as an independent candidate.

Reliable sources said that Shetty, who was frustrated at the way he was handled by the party leaders, is confident of winning the seat.

Halady’s supporters said that the former MLA made the above announcement, when a group of his supporters met him on Thursday March 21, and sought details of his future plans. Many believe that Shetty, on account of his charisma and accessibility, has a huge fan following in the region, and hence has the capacity to rock the BJP boat, which was sailing smoothly since long.

Halady who was let down after being promised a ministerial berth resigned as member of legislative assembly and then from the BJP. After that he did not reveal his support to any party until the urban local body elections were over and now he has decided to contest independently, confirmed sources.
A number of Shetty’s supporters continue to be in BJP. As many as 7 supporters of Halady have won in the municipal election under BJP who have assured full support to him. When he was advised to seek outside support of BJP for his candidature, Shetty said he does not want to have any ties with the party. “You are free to support the person of your choice. I am not pressurizing you people to lend support to me. I am confident that the voters of the constituency will ensure my victory,” he reportedly told them.

Other that BJP party members, there is a indication that even members from JD(S) and other party might support Srinivas Shetty.

From Kundapur, in Congress party, the name of Malyadi Shivaram Shettar is among the probable candidates for the assembly election while from BJP, the race is between Mani Gopal and B Kishore.

Since his college days, he is a leader,to help & do good to everybody.He can discuss, cant argue,a man with very high self prestige.Sadly those ethical days are gone.Today an idiot joins a politics & makes crores of money, he will become a model or hero.People say he can win without a party support.this time he has to prove it. Even if wins he has to join one of the chor company, if not as good as sitting in Kundapura. Since he is very sensitive, these chor company, will upset him he will resign again..

there is no one to defeat Mr. Halady in kundapur.. doesn't matter national parties and their money and power.. guys just wait and see..

Saturday, March 23, 2013

Dear Sir, I have heard nice things about you. Wish you good luck. I wish to tell you one thing. Some of the evils have walked away by this time. No doubt some are still in your earlier party. But, you can continue with your party also and you would be in the good books. Or else do not join any other party, you contest as an Independent. You would get elected as everyone knows about you and your good work, behaviour and nature would definitely be rewarded. But, as an Independent candidate, the scope would be limited. However, I wish you good luck and support you for the very reason that your kind hearted, well cultured, and not being corrupt. Wish you good luck once again.

Mr.Shetty, Really your great.But now difficult for you to win Independently.BZ the congress & BJP is two national party and their have some percentage of party votes. So just you think and take right decision all the best...

This time people will vote right candidates like no communal minded dividing people between religion, targeting religious places in the name caste, making hate speech etc. we call our twin district most educated people district but what we do and support most corrupted and sick minded people who divided society in the name of mandir, masjid and church this should be stop forever.. and this is the right time to elect and the right person to show our true identity. i know only few people doing these kind of activities and blaming whole communities.

Late 1980's and in 1990's Jaya Prakash Hegde, contested from then Brahmavar Assembly constiuency. He won three consecutive terms. Also served as fisheries minister in Deve Gowda ministry. Will Mr. Halady Srinivas Shetty be next JP Hegde at Kundapoor?. We will wait for the results!!!

Winning and loosing is just a cycle that repeats every 5 years with different actors.
Who would have thought that congress had a chance 5 years back? What will happen to BJP? At the most they will sit in opposition for 5 years . Do you think congress party consists of saints ? Watch out in next 6 months when all the congress Pudaris start lofting the state and forget all their promises. Off course you will see more minority appeasement, reservation politics, lira a politics etc etc that typically amplifies congress vote bank politics. Get a life man and don't sweat for this political party that has destroyed this country in the last 60 years or so.

Dear Sir

All respect but you will loose, because you are no matter now a days. Join any party and make a difference. U joined a wrong party and the result your voters suffered, because u resigned but what about one time voters. Think twice.

Congress – Please do not under the wrong impression of JPHs win. That time all the politicians in region irrespective party stood neutral. Because of JPHs personality and there is no choice also (Sunil Kumar was unknown to major parts of the region). Current probable candidate for Congress Malyadi Shivaram Shetty not has proper exposure so far (absolutely no idea regarding him).

BJP – On current scenario Kota Shrinivasa Poojari definitely achieved better consideration than the earlier days because of his good work. He holds coastal side – They will not turn to any other.

HSS – As I mentioned in my earlier post, he has bigger fan following community but some portion now started following Kota.

It is too early to predict further… Definitely its “interesting match at Kundapura”.

sadananda, Halady/abudhbai

he does not need any volunteers. if the voters come to know that he is in contest he will win this time by more than 30,000 margin.All the best to kundapura voters who are supporting him.

Parweez Hussain, Addoor, Mangalore

Ismail Bhai, you are right. BJP will not hesitate to do such cheap politics. However, i wish HSS win this time. And of course, it was a good decision he took by competing independently and not joining the back stabbers party Congress. . .
Good luck HSS . . .

Dinesh Poojary, Kundapura/Bengaluru

I appreciate his boldness to contest as independent and keeping away from INERT and CORRUPT congress.

All the best Shetre.

Friday, March 22, 2013

Dinesh ..I add further to your comment...HSS,I appriciate...KEEPING AWAY FROM INERT/CORRUPT/COMMUNAL BJP

Dinesh Poojary, Kundapura/Bengaluru
Friday, March 22, 2013


Also few more reasons for keeping away from congress is:

1. Congress is terror supporter.
2. Ant-national.
3. Family ruling.
4. Sidelined national interests.
5. Illegally ruling India using CBI.
6. Most communal, Killed thousands of Sikhs
7. Italy, Pakistan preferred over India

Considering his health , it is better for him to call a day. He has the responsibility of being the Presidents of various samithis and the meetings are usually cancelled as he can not attend due to health. He is the president of Akrama Sakrama committe in Byndoor, and I do not know how many meetings he has attended. More over he has to travel all the way from Halady To Byndoor for these meetings, as though no healthy person is avilable in Byndoor area.

Dear Dinesh,
Your thinking is wrong...

And from pure, holy and sanctified BJP, Mr.Dinesh!

Friday, March 22, 2013

Mr Srinivas Shetty it will be difficult for you to win this time as an independant candidate.Simple mathematical calculation and you know where you stand.You will be in the second place this time and congress will have a slight edge over you and BJP as in all other places will get the bronze medal.

Chandrashekhar, Kundapura / Basrur
Friday, March 22, 2013

On the ground HSS is best social servant amongst the available. He is always stood with common man in the region and undoubtedly has huge fan following community.

Big issue (negativity) with HSS is restricted to simple fundas – No media stunts, No aggression, not ambitious, these issues may cause great loss to Kundapura. HSS should start thinking in a broader perspective according to changed circumstance.

Good Luck HSS…

HSS will thrash the others. Its a foregone conclusion. HSS has shown respect for locals and deserves every support. Even JP had won as independent candidate.

Very..Good decesion by HSS. He will win with huge margin. Lesson to both the parties as well. BJP will wash out in Udupi district!

Friday, March 22, 2013

BJP may likely to make indirect adjustment with Congress to defeat HSS?A option can't be ruled out..YAAN ENCHALA WIN AAPUJJI(BJP)..THUKA, YANAN PIDAI DEED E-ENCH WIN AAPA.....

If the people of Kundapur wants Govt funds to be utilised for the devlopment works in their consituency then they have to vote for Halady Srinivas Shetty. Good luck to Mr Shetty & we hope you retain the seat fighting the Corrupt & caste party candidates & prove that you are a "Ajaatha Shatru" & show BJP what they have lost.

Madhyastha H, hungarcutta/Japan

In receprocate JP showered many good work to Huungarcuuta and many kudrus around.Like wise,Hallady will also be supported this time. Good persons will always remebered in the society.
