'Take photo with Shobha Karandlaje in Udupi' – Mithun Rai offers Rs 5000 for first five winners

Daijiworld Media Networks - Udupi (HB)

Udupi, Sep 27: “If anybody finds MP Shobha Karandlaje in Udupi, Kaup or Brahmavar constituency in one week, let’s take a photo with her and send it to Udupi Block Congress president. The first five winners will get Rs 5000 as reward," said youth Congress leader Mithun Rai and in-charge of Udupi Constituency.

He offered a special prize and threw a challenge against Karandlaje at a Padayatra organized by Udupi Block Congress Committee demanding immediate repair of Malpe Karavali road on Tuesday, September 27.

Mithun Rai launched the padayatra by holding the tag of Kambala buffalos. The protest march began from Kalmady church and culminated near Karavali Bypass.

He further said that, “Shobhakka has been missing for many days in Udupi. BJP does not have any concern about her but as Congress leaders we care for her. If she is not found anywhere in a week, we will register a missing complaint in all police stations to search for her. We will stick posters of missing people on the wall of Karvali Bypass. The people’s representatives of Udupi are doing nothing for their constituency but are only giving assurances.

Minister Sunil Kumar, MLA Raghupathi Bhat and MP Shobha Karandlaje are the three monkeys of chief minister Bommai like those of Mahatma Gandhi."

Taunting MLA Raghupathi Bhat, Mithun Rai said, "Bhat is not sleeping at night. He is busy counting the 40% commission amount that he got from the construction work. Let’s wake up and work. The MLA keeps on saying that 'we will take measures to repair Malpe road', but it still remains the same. He will work only for those who pay commission, not for the common people.

Malpe is one of the well known tourist destinations in Karnataka but the government is not even providing basic infrastructure like roads. This shows the interest of our MLA. Congress will keep fighting against the evil powers. This is not ‘Acche Din.’ The prices of daily commodities are increasing and corruption is prevailing everywhere. Only a little more time is left to end the BJP administration. Congress will come back to power and will keep fighting for justice against BJP," said Mithun Rai.

Ramesh Kanchan, president, Udupi Block Congress, who led the padayatra, said, "Malpe–Monakalmur road was upgraded from state highway to national highway many years ago. But the roads are in a pathetic condition. Local representatives have no interest in the development or providing infrastructural facilities to the public and their only interest is in doing politics. MLA Bhat is very good in taking public to his confidence and making false promises. People are facing severe problems, especially during monsoons. None of the officials is bothered about it. Many accidents occurred due to potholes on the road. The present government is corrupt and involved in scams. Let the department concerned take a look into the problem and start the repair work at the earliest.

Congress leaders Veronica Cornelio, KPCC spokesperson, Bhujanga Shetty, Sunitha Shetty, Amrith Shenoy, Bhaskar Rao Kediyur, Nagesh Udyavar, Roshini Oliver, Yatish Karkera, Prashanth Jathanna and others participated.

    I fully agree Mr.Mithun Rai. I happened to travel by auto recently from Udupi to Malpe. The road condition was pathetic and travel painful. In fact 80% of roads in Udupi are in a horrible state. Mr. Mithun Rai please visit Kannarpady, Balaji Layout, Udupi. One stretch of road after St.Mary High School has not been touched in 20 years . If you see visually you will understand. Hope to get your support in repairing the road

    Have you noticed one thing in the photographs? nowhere you can find the image of Rahul Gandhi. That is the way...congress is still a force (without Gandhis). The whole fight all these days has been reduced to build the image of Rahul Gandhi ..which caused lot of damage to the party.

    Great work Mithun. At least as MoS agriculture, Shobakka could visit and see flood damage to fields in her constituency.

    We have to appreciate Mithun Rai for giving BJP taste of their own medicine. They are feeling like bonkers now when opposition started to question them. Mithun Rai has mass appeal and has been appreciated time and over for his raising of concerns in a bold way..

    In India people are worry about dirtiness and messy life. You must know when there was a Diwali festival here(USA) Indians are made the street and place so dirty, it is a shame for us. Then Police needed to interfere and they hired people to clean the street. These people are making dirty not only India through rubbish, even the countries where they live now. So shame it is!!!

    Shankar, I was on Sabbaticals.... ***A sabbatical is a rest or break from work. The concept of the sabbatical is based on the Biblical practice of shmita, which is related to agriculture. According to Leviticus 25, Jews in the Land of Israel must take a year-long break from working the fields every seven years. Wikipedia*** ...Tak...Takk...
