Mangaluru: MCC polls - BJP workers clash with MLC Ivan at Jeppu polling booth


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, Nov 12: Irked by the presence of Ivan D'Souza, MLC at the entrance of the polling booth at Infant Mary Higher Primary School at Jeppu in the city, BJP workers had a verbal duel with him.

Ivan was standing near the entrance of the booth along with the Congress and BJP candidates of the ward. The BJP workers objected to the presence of Ivan saying that he is an elected representative and he should not stand in such close proximity to the polling station. In fact, Ivan was asking the voters to vote for the Congress candidate.

On the contrary, Ivan put the blame on the BJP workers and said that BJP workers from other wards are present near the polling station and are creating issues for the voters. The BJP workers said that If Ivan is not going to leave the place, they will also call their MP and MLAs to the spot and canvas for their party. But Ivan did not budge, which led to verbal duel between the MLC and BJP workers.

Later, on hearing the news, the police arrived to the spot and dispersed both the Congress and BJP workers to a distance of 100 meters away from the entrance of the polling booth. In addition ACP Gaonkar, other senior police officers and return officer, who rushed to the spot, requested the workers and leaders of both Congress and BJP to allow the public to cast their votes freely without any tension.

The voting continued smoothly once the police team arrived. Apart from Ivan of Congress, BJP leaders like Punith Kottari, Capt Brijesh Chowta, Joylus and Nandan Mallya were present on the spot.

    Ivan is not ''elected'' but ''NOMINATED''. There is a lot of difference between the two words. Being elected has more weight than nominated.

    BJP loyal-workers must have obtained clean-chit from center to stand in middle of the entrance but Ivan not obtained permit which they did not like ?

    All are going to cast their vote. Once the voting is done no one should stay at that place.

    BJP is already trying to show their goondagardi. As central and state governments are BJP and also for the fact that EVMs without VVPAT verification are used for the polls, the balatkaris are confident of winning the MCC also.

    Development will be zero..
