Mangaluru, Apr 2: “Though the fishermen of coastal region have cast 80% of votes to BJP for the past 70 years, the community has not received any political position. So we will continue our fight till a fishermen community candidate is given a ticket from Mangaluru North constituency by BJP,” said Ramachandar Baikampady, member of state special executive committee of BJP.
In a press conference that was held on Saturday, Ramachandar said, “This is an appeal by the fishermen community to national president of BJP J P Nadda and state BJP president Nalin Kumar Kateel. CM Bommai has already assured us. BJP ticket must be given to a fishermen community candidate to contest from Mangaluru North constituency. If this constituency ticket is given to our community, we will make BJP victorious in three constituencies of Dakshina Kannada district.”
Babu Bangera, Murali Raj Ucchil and Sukesh Ucchil were present.
