Mangaluru, Jan 15: Newly inducted state cabinet minister S Angara visited BJP office here on Friday January 15. He said that he will work in such a manner not to put the faith and belief of BJP and the workers on him to disgrace and also handle the responsibility given by the party efficiently.
Angara spoke after receiving the felicitation in the programme that was organized by Dakshina Kannada district BJP at the district BJP office of Dakshina Kannada in the city, to congratulate him on his becoming a minister.
Minister Angara further said, "RSS and the party has helped me grow to this level. I will carry out the functions of the portfolio that is given to me properly and not to cause any harm to the faith people have kept on me. I will never put down the expectations of seniors in the party. I will march in the path that is shown by the seniors in the party. I will give special stress to the development works.
"I am faithful to the party. I have never shown any greed for power. I will manage the work considering the situation in hand. The felicitation which I have received today is the honour that is given to the organization of the party,” he said.
MP Nalin Kumar Kateel said, “Today, the whole district will celebrate as Angara got a minister’s post. When I became the president of state BJP, the same time cabinet was formed. I felt bad to see Angara’s name missing. Expressing disappointment on missing out, he worked for the party efficiently. When he lost the election in 1989, he did not give up but worked hard for 5 years. He visited every household and campaigned. Since then, he kept on winning the elections. No need to doubt on his working as he will become the best minister in the state. Since he became MLA, Sullia has seen good development. He has worked without any black mark on his name.”
District BJP president Sudharshan Moodbidiri said, “Once again it is proved that BJP is a party of representatives. I congratulate Angara on becoming minister. Let this district witness development under his ministership. After Nalin Kumar Kateel became state president of BJP, the representatives of the party are getting lot of respect for their sincere work.”
MLAs Vedavyasa Kamath, Sanjeev Matandoor, mayor Diwakar Pandeshwar and zilla panchayat president Meenakshi Shanthigodu were also present.
After his arrival to the city, Angara visited Kadri temple and Sanghanikethan.
