The speciality of the election is that two contestants from Karkala block itself are contesting for the post of president. Out of these aspirants, some have identified themselves in national level activities of the party, while others have dedicatedly involved themselves in party activities at district and block level.

He is also inspiring youngsters to go for achievement in the sports field.

He actively organized anti-democracy policies of BJP and has organized youth Congress efficiently. After completing his degree, he has registered himself in the list of aspirants for the post of district youth Congress president.

On the whole, it needs to be seen whether those who have the skill to take senior and junior leaders of the party into confidence will win the post or will the candidates supported by senior leaders of the party will be victorious. It is also interesting to see whether the youth Congress voters will opt for a new face this time. Countdown for the fierce contest has begun.

    Todays educate youth and Congress supporters and youth leaders, please work hard and with sincere efforts to up lift party image and serve for peoples needs. We are going through worst phase of our independent secular morals and skipping the basic norms of democracy to dictatorial rule of BJP. Things are created by force under the disguise of majority community & power which is against our secular constitution. In India there are so many minority religion people and they have their own choice of food and snatching their rights is against humanity. Republic of India does not fall under any Kingdom or Royal rule.
