Mangaluru: Nalin is certain as BJP candidate – who will contest from Congress?


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (ANK)

Mangaluru, Mar 12: As soon the general elections were announced, the selection of candidates from the national parties has gained momentum. Ticket aspirants are anxious and speeded up their efforts to get selected as candidates from their respective parties.

MP Nalin Kumar Kateel's name is almost confirmed to represent Dakshina Kannada constituency for the third time from BJP. From Congress, it is believed that the race is between Ramanath Rai and B K Hariprasad to contest from the Congress in Dakshina Kannada constituency.


Nalin Kumar Kateel, Ramanath Rai, B K Hariprasad and Mithun Rai

Ramanath Rai and B K Hariprasad names were on top during the screening committee meeting held at Delhi on March 11. As per sources Congress high command may announce Congress candidate by March 15. Other than Ramanath Rai and B K Hariprasad, names of former minister Vinay Kumar Sorake, SCDCC Bank president M N Rajendra Kumar, youth congress leader Mithun Rai were also proposed during the meeting.

B K Hariprasad has handled various positions in Congress, He has a strong say in the party high command. He is very close to the top leaders of the party too. As per political analysts, his name figures in the list of aspirants for Lok Sabha election from Dakshina Kannada Lok Sabha seat. But in his interview with Daijiworld last month, he did not clarify whether he is particular about being fielded from Dakshina Kannada Lok Sabha seat. Clearly he says he is an aspirant for Lok Sabha ticket and he has given six other options, including Dakshina Kannada, which he has already conveyed to the party leadership.

As Billawa community has a significant presence in the district, there is a demand from a section to give ticket to B K Hariprasad who belong to Billawa community. So there is a possibility of B K Hariprasad representing from the Dakshina Kannada constituency.

If the high command considers rapport with people in Dakshina Kannada, then there are chances for Ramanath Rai to be a Congress candidate as he has been always in touch with the people being a resident in the constituency.

Ramanath Rai has been in the forefront for the ticket from the constituency. He also went to Delhi and had a dialogue with the party high command. When it comes to criticizing BJP and MP Nalin Kumar Kateel, Ramanath Rai is very vocal including in holding Padayatra. He has developed good rapport and contact with the people across the district and as per analysts Ramanath Rai can be a tough competitor for BJP.

It is said that Ramanath Rai has not been making any controversial remarks since last Assembly elections and has a strong possibility of getting ticket to contest.

In the recent development, SCDCC Bank president Rajendra Kumar is also a ticket aspirant, He was seen at the Congress Parivartana Yathra at Adyar Garden recently.

Vinay Kumar Sorake does not have much hold in the district as expected and some local organisations have raised voices against him.

Youth Congress leader Mithun Rai is one of the top contenders for the ticket.

MLC Ivan D Souza is also in the race as he himself has claimed that he is one of the ticket aspirants.

Opposition for Nalin Kumar Kateel

District BJP president Sanjeev Matandoor has clarified the party will field its current MP, Nalin Kumar Kateel, for third time in a row from this constituency. But there is lot of opposition for Nalin Kumar Kateel from the party as well as from the public. Recently Sathyajith Suratkal fans also demanded ticket for him by hoisting banners across the district demanding for the ticket, But state BJP president Yeddyurappa intervened and asked to remove all the banners. On the other hand the incompletion of highway works and flyovers may turn negative for Nalin Kumar Kateel. Congress leaders are using this as trump card and attacking BJP.

While JD(S) has already submitted four candidature list that is BM Farooq, MLC Bhoje Gowda, vice president M B Sadashiv and spokesperson Sushil Noronha. But JD(S) party does not have strong presence in the local constituency.

    WHo is Hari Prasad?

    Mithun Rai is a more efficient and charismatic candidate than any BJP or Congress leader at this point in time as he has better grass root presence, is able to relate to core issues and will be able to mobilize crowds.

    and Bhakts who wish to vote for Narendra Modi, please list his achievements apart from Jumla Speeches, High unemployment rate, Inflation, botched GST and Demonetization scam?

    Mithun Is the right candidate . He is close to my neighbour pachava . Mithun has guts as well as support from various youngster organizations. If congress thinks old horses like hariprasad, rananath Rai , moily or Oscar then it is better to give ticket like abru, cherko, pachava or eppe ! Because Congress need mass leader like young Mithun Rai !!!

    The excitement by Billawa voting for BJP is diminishing as they have been treated not par with other upper caste people except in Udupi, by compulsion they have given importance as MLC to one bIllawa leader.
    Things are slowly changing in favour of Congress provided Congress party should know, how to exploit the situation. Janardhana Poojary's arrogancy has led to his down fall and BJP's today's arrogant attitude will lead to their down fall.

    From Congress party, most probably it will be B K Hariprasad as he his good in organisational skills and communicate better. Mitun Rai have a great chance but due to few factors which will go against him.

    I agree with you, Mitun Rai is the best candidate for Mangalore Constituency for Congress party. But during Karnataka MLA state election, his active participation was not visible. That may go against him. Otherwise, in the present scenario, Mitun Rai is the best candidate. I feel he has a better edge than others due to his close connection with some of the top leaders of Congress party.

    R.Bhandarkar, Mangaluru
    If the defeat is due to the fact, that the opponent has really out smarted and won the game, then I will accept the verdict.
    During Karnataka MLA election, how come one coastal Karnataka BJP leader said with 100% confident, they will win all seats except Ullal constituency. When the loss is dispropotionate; based on past history and other factor, then obviously this raise to many doubts.
    This is my honest assessments. I will accept defeats gracefully provided it is a fair game.
    Ballot paper election is the best.

    Day by Day,
    Hour by Hour,

    Bandhu Maam is leaning more on BJP and soon be a Chaddi Bakht... Why????


    Last few weeks, Bandhu Maam is so sure, BJP will win 20 seats in the state, 2 less than Chaddi Yeddi.

    Cheers..

    Same were the chances for Congress over 30 years ago. Oscar also had won in Indira & Rajiv Gandhi's name. Aab satta pallat gaya.

    Even senior Congress leader, A.K. Anthony has accepted the party's anti-Hindu stand. It will be very difficult for Congress to win until oldies like Diggy, Kapil Sibal, etc. are ousted from the party who always bat for communities and minorities. Congress needs to change from Sickularism to Secularism, as the party was during the days of Indira & Rajiv Gandhi.

    The mindset of DK voteers is simple . All are going to vote with one thought in mind 'Modi for PM' , does not matter who is contesting, its irrelevant.

    Sri Ramanath Rai should take a cue from Sharad Pawar.

    When the body is giving signals that a person finds difficulty in walking, he should spend the rest of whatever is remaining of his life in rest, meditation and with family.

    Let the younger leaders take up the role.

    However, if it is B K Hariprasad the 'match fixer' then it is a walkover for the BJP.
