M R Vasudeva confident of giving tough contest to Congress, BJP

Shreyas HS
Daijiworld Media Network-Mangalore

Mangalore, Mar 12: Straight away delineating the developmental agenda that is close to the ground reality of Mangalore, AAP (Aam Admi Party) candidate and erstwhile airport director M R Vasudev in an exclusive interview to Daijiworld said Mangalore International Airport has to accommodate a bus terminus of international standards and a subordinate railway station close to the airport to ease the travelling burdens of the commuters.

Views on Development 

M R Vasudev attacking the apathy and poor planning of the administrators, in other words the government, said Mangalore is one of the best places in the country on the lines of Infrastructure, but governments all these years have failed to yield best results from the district. So far, irrespective of the party in power, the focus of development has been Bangalore due to which the capital of the state is overloaded and people have began to suffer because of the unregulated and unplanned development. However, as far as DK is concerned, this is a district which has all forms of connectivity, namely roadways, railways, and airway which till date have gone through many obstacles in its upgradation. Roadways and railways in the district have been neglected, with successive legislators pushing the issue into the oblivion.

“According to me Mangalore has every resource pertaining to major sectors like education, health, infrastructure, fishing, industry and many more. But the MPs and MLAs who came all these years were least bothered to give a perfect shape to these sectors," said Vasudeva. 

Further, speaking on the industrial sector, he said Mangalore is a highly preferable place for the sector and it should be considered with seriousness. "But the government is investing money in the wrong places and with a less holistic approach. More and more industries have to emerge creating job opportunities for local youths. This also helps those who migrate in search of livelihood or better future," he said. 

Shortage of doctors in rural areas

“Despite establishment of umpteen number of medical colleges in the district, rural places in DK still face shortage of doctors. During my visit to rural areas, I have seen a lot of villages where people have no access to medical facilities in their vicinities, which forces them to travel long distances to see  doctors for treatment. Doctors have to serve in rural areas. Health centers need to be set up in every nook and corner of the villages. This would facilitate the villagers in having better access to healthcare," he added.


Vasudeva, speaking on the prospects of airport, of which he is the former director, stressed that a bus terminus of international standards needs to be set up at the airport. "Also, a railway station has to be built below Kenjar. This will give a comprehensive connectivity to the airport and ease the burdens of the commuters, he felt. 

Campaign strategy 

When quizzed on the campaign strategy of the AAP in the district to give tough competition to two major political parties BJP and Congress, he contended, "Our strategy is meeting every individual in the district in person and create awareness of the current apathy and corruption in the system. We are here to represent the views of aam aadmi (common man) and not our personal views."

Further, stressing on the views of the common man, he lamented that development in the district over the years was without the collective consensus of the views of the locals. The discussions on development in the parliament or anywhere is unilateral, he criticized.

Countering the question on AAP's snail-paced preparations ahead of general elections, he said, “We were less in number. After many membership drives in the district the party has managed to garner more support. Now the party feels that the time is ripe to display the power of AAP.  "Without wasting any time we will begin our strong political campaign in the district," he said. 


Views on Yettinahole Project

Breaking the silence on AAP's lukewarm involvement in the protests against the controversial Yettinahole project, Vasudeva defending the party said, “We are a bit confused about the project. Both the Congress and the BJP were involved in the process of pushing the project. But now both are opposing it blatantly and playing a blame-game. We are a party with a difference and we keep away from exchange of allegations. We have now come to a decision to oppose the project with a new dimension of protests during the election campaign. AAP will not use the issue for electoral gains. Perhaps this was one of the reasons AAP refrained itself from the clamor created by other parties in the district," he explained.

"Most of the skewed projects such as Netravati diversion and Niddodi power plant have been dumped in the district as against the interests of the locals. This is a disastrous and distressful development and if such mindset of the state government continues to prevail on the district, the day is not far when we will have to vociferously demand a separate statehood for Tulunadu," he added. 

Winnability and credibility as a candidate

When questioned on his winnability and credentials as a candidate, he came up with a confident answer: "I am just representing the views of the people. If I happen to assume the MP post, I would be happy. Winning or losing does not matter too much to me but I would certainly create a political ripple and give a tough time to B Janardhan Poojary of Congress and Nalin Kumar of BJP."

“I am a common man too and I absolutely have no money to spend from my pocket. Even AAP has fewer funds to distribute to each of its candidates.” Saying this, he requested daijiworld readers and NRIs to extend financial help to him to contest the elections in an effort to change the system.

If you all share my sentiments then I would request you all to give one chance to AAP in the lok sabha election by voting for Mr. Vasudeva, who I assure you is the most eligible, capable & hard working gentleman.

    Anyway, when I asked my mother to Vote for Mr. Vasudeva she had some interesting queries. First she asked me whether he was from congress I said no its a new party. then she asked me whether he was a Rich Family, I said I think not very Rich, so she said it was of no use. If he is not from Rich Family, he will concentrate on creating Wealth for himself. I said this man was different, lets see she has told, hope he will keep our expectations.

    If you go for BJP you will be busted, if you go for Cong you will be dusted. if you go for AAP you will be done and dusted.

    All challi, pilli parties will split the vote of both Christian/Muslim and majority of Hindus vote. This way, BJP will gain from the rain. Congress wants to power after 23 years and people want to have a change in all walks of the system. But how it possible?!!!! That is the question and it remain always as a question!!!!.

    BJP already created a storm under the banner of Hindutava as well as the tactic of divide and rule, which they already capitalized thru creating haters among the Citizen of India. But well-wishers of the nation they are frustrated from the restless nuisance of the party and its followers as well as from the dummy candidate of D.K.

    On the other hand, slow motion and power cut administrative measures of Congress ruling is made the people of D.K. to think before going to ink. But yet they keep in hope, keeping in mind ‘something is better than nothing’. Also, the candidate of Congress is a known personality to the people of D.K since decades. He is a well experienced candidate in the field of politics.

    AAP is a new to D.K., common man is not much aware about this party as well as the candidate. In this short span of time think AAP will going to do it in D.K. The candidate of D.K. is a good I agree, but people are upset of AAP dealing in Delhi. Delhi people has given a good chance to AAP they just thrown away and jumped to national level, even they could not manage in Delhi. How could they manage in National level? If you observed, since the beginning of AAP dealing you could realize the fact that why AAP not need in D.K. this time. Leave the AAP to grove up and mature for the next time.

    So, now the question comes, whom we could and elect. “I can only say, people of D.K. think wisely and vote wisely”. Please don’t waste your valued vote like just spitting to dust. Don’t bring any “Fasci

    AAP is a party of the common man. AAP is a party that fights corruption. AAP wanted to bring Lok Pal bill, but other parties opposed it and defeated the bill. Why big businesses and corporates do not support AAP? Is that because it is a common man's party?
    To make a difference and for a change, all need to support AAP and M.R.Vasudeva in material and financially. Mr. Vasudeva is an intelligent person and the right man for the common man.

    M.R. Vasudeva happens to be a good administrator and successful director of Mangalore Airport. His contribution widely appreciated from twin district. He may be an ideal candidate for MP but it is not necessary those who worked as government officers will serve better as public representatives. Arvind kejrival the AAP chief may have good intention of bringing down corruption. I salute his concerns towards national interest, but his party does not have any road map or concrete strategy to address the burning issues of this country and a plan for good governance. It is proved once he become CM of Delhi he could not handle his own Minsiter who took the law in hands. It is so funny that even after knowing that the the Delhi police is under the union government he started agitating on street.

    Transferring Delhi police from the union government to the state has its own procedures need to be approved by the parliament (amendment) still Kejriwal and his supporters agitated on street looks he is still immature or does not have any stategy to address the problems in the proper direction. India needs change public frasturated with the existing political system and parties. The public desire driven AAP to this massive support but AAP failed frame the party structure and political strategy till now. The major gain is that AAP created impact on the parties who ruled ruthlessly past 60 years ignoring public sentiments to change their attitude. I wish good luck to Mr. Vasudeva but AAP is not the right party in the sense they are not reached to a level of political entity rule this country. Arvind needs panel of experts to guide him politically, experts from all field to creat policy and strategy, he acts like dictator at this juncture with overwhelming public support. The public will dump him from the height where is he now if he failed address their issues in a metured way.We can not fool and play with public sentiments for long. I appreciate his efforts to bring the changes in this country.

    AAP is not a "political party",in a sense, but a beginning of a revolution.It has faced challenges both internally and externally, as is normal. It has already succeeded in waking up people's conscience and also both national parties. It is not a small achievement by any means. So deservedly, Congratulations to AAP.

    Being a NRI with no voting chance, comments are really irrelevant. But if I am sincere in my support for the AAP, I can begin with a humble financial contribution. They NEED it more than any other party.
    Vasudevjee, our best wishes and prayers are with you.

People should forget voting their default parties in the past and look for a serious change or else our tomorrow also will remain same as yesterday.

    2. AAP is face of common man.
    3. M R Vasudeva is a best candidate.
    4. But the problem is AAP is still not organized to take on the big parties.
    5. Wherever AAP is not able to win, our VOTES to AAP will go waste and benefit consolidation of HARDLINERS votes.

    The negative comments on AAP are untrue and if you disagree with the foregoing, then please give us a good reason why.

    Both BJP and Congress have failed and corruption at all levels of government is rampant, and many have connived - just pay cash (bribe) and have your way. This has resulted in the whole system of corruption and the ONLY way to fix this corrupt system is to enact, enforce and ute laws that bring revenues to the exchequer and when the money is spent wisely “Aam Aadmi” will benefit.

    Let's say we have a BLACK door, but we would like to change it to White what would we do.
    1. Abuse and curse the door and hope it will become white?
    2. Call a painter and ask him to repaint the door - but he has only black paint?
    4. Switch the paint companies as they have a lighter shade of black, and the door is now dark grey?
    5. Replace the black door with another door. The salesman shows you a white, but when installed it is a black door again. Salesman says you would have to wait for 4 more years as white out of stock?
    6. Get White paint and paint over the black door- and after 3 or 4 coats (years) the black door will eventually become WHITE.

    For centuries we have been piggy backed and the masses continue to live in grinding poverty and only a very small section of people based on Caste, Creed, Community and religion have prospered. Books have been written and speeches made, but the LOOTING AND EXPLOITATION HAS CONTINUED FOR CENTURIES. The Hindu Kings, the Moguls, the British, the Congress, the BJP - history repeats itself all over again and NOTHING HAPPENS.

    In Indian history this a national movement of Aam Aadmi similar to the “Quit India” movement of those who love their motherland. So talk to your Friends, Neighbors and Family, let’s take up that “Jadoo” and sweep the filth - VOTE FOR AAP.

    May God Bless India

    I agree with the comment of Mr. Ajith, Mangalore. Albeit I appreciate the development works done by Mr M R Vasudeva in Mangalore, he does not have the experience in politics. Even if he could win in the election, he may have to resign from the post like Mr Aravind Kejriwal as he does not have a political background.

    Dear NRIs your one word to your family people asking them to support Sir M R Vasudeva can make a difference. This can be a best way to campaign him and make him win.

    I think he might be a good advisory to a person like poojary. He may have a vision. But not as strong and powerful leader as Janardhana poojary.
    The reason is because poojary can make people work just by raising his voice.
    WE could see him even talking against MODI or siddaramiah, coz only a person like poojaryu only can speak against anyone. Its nt Nalin or vaudeva. They only can simply wait and watch for another 5 years.
    but this man Mr Vasudeva can definitely be a good advisory but not a politician .for the last 23 years we have not seen anything happening from MP side.
    For the last 5 years we could see an MP only in temple renovation and some inaugural ribbn cutting ceremony. Hope this time around we could see poojary winnning and once again programs like saala mela or others happenning.
    If we want to see development hope one will vote for JP , one wants to see more temple renovation then Nalin Kumar kateel , or simply keep advising about implementation then it will be vaudeva so think before you vote.

    Vasudevaji..overconfident is not your part of agenda..
    In the past it's totally a different story..but now people wants to handover government to a strong party..i.e. BJP.. a last hope.
    By any means..not in India but all over in the world..needs Modiji as a Prime Minister..!!
    It's your bad luck choosen on wrong time..
    Better try after five years..if God wishes..Jai Ho..

    Vasudev Bhat can only hope to get the votes of those passengers who land in Mangalore on election day because he is known for his good work at the Mangalore airport only. Politics is not his cup of tea. He should support Poojary and withdraw his candidature instead of helping BJP by dividing congress votes.

    I do agree Vasudeva is a good candidate. But slim chance as MP. It is very difficult to acquire land for railway till the airport. If it happens...in Mangalore it will take another 20 years. About employment to youth, hardly any youth is willing to work. For moral policing and protests there are plenty!
    Vasudeva cannot say that MP/MLA are doing nothing. JR Lobo is doing a great job and slowly, steadily he is developing Mangalore. If JRL cannot do it, It is very difficult for Vasudeva too!
    JRL & JP combination may work very well for Mangalore at the current situation and a full stop to Moral policing which is a major curse towards law and order.

    Don't worry.. AAP is a new party and nothing to lose!

    You should worry about Congress and BJP's name and fame!!

    People who are silently watching news channels, reading newspapers and websites will go and vote for AAP!!

    People know what is good for the country and they will take smart decision!

    Just wait and watch!!

    I am sure M R Vasudeva has a clear vision of developing Mangalore and well versed with the actual problems our city is facing! No doubt his robust past experience will add to the power he will get as a MP in developing this long forgotten city by our rulers in Bangalore! Its time for the people of DK to forget these useless candidates like JP and Kateel and think in a new direction which will help us to give a better tomorrow for ourselves and our children!

    Good Luck Mr.Vasudeva.

    NOTA will not be applied on your constituency if you are the candidate. We have seen what Congress and BJP has done so far.Congress has been tied up with Delhi High Command and BJP has been tied by Kalladka High Command.

    You are better than the named party's candidates so your winning chance is more than them.

    I will be with you ,anticipating a better representation at the Parliament .

    Good Luck

    The way both renowned National Party's acted funny dealing with Jan Lokpal Bill at Delhi shows how much the Cancer of Corruption has spread in Politics and mind it both are Face of the same coin. Hence people want a change they have a chance in AAP.
    We have tasted BJP rule in our State with Yeddi plus Reddy. We have seen all sorts of Scandals and Scams at the center. Whom to believe. A person wants to join Politics to trash Money for the generation, and we Vote for them. Only hope for us the crusader with only one agenda that is anti corruption. Rest all shall fall in place, like Garibi Hatao, Developement, Jai Jawan and Jai Kisan!! etc.,etc.. In my frank opinion give AAP a chance and a jolt to both National age old Parties who have mastered the art of fooling People to fill their personal treasures. Jai Hind!!

    Sir Dinesh Poojary,

    Mr Kejriwal has clearly mentioned and answered each and every question and he didn't run away he clarified as follows

    When Congress gave support Kejriwal went to the public to ask their opinion, and public said take congress support and till when they support your agenda continue. The moment they don't support then don't continue. Accordingly, he did when both Congress and BJP denied to support Jan lok pal bill.

    Original Jan Lok pal is the main agenda of AAP.

    They said it need central approval, So he planned now to enter into parliament and to give green signal to Janlokpal.

    Since we are congress and BJP supporters it is difficult to accept. But now we realized and we need to change. Vote for AAP.

    I am surprised that Mangalore is one of the best places in terms of infrastructure and whoever has said that must be dreaming. What is an infrastructure - that has good roads, traffic discipline, good parking facilities, footpaths, pedestrian crossing and so on so forth. We never have any of these facilities and I find it disgusting to see that Mangalore infrastructure is going from bad to worse. Our infrastructure definitely meets only 1% of international standards. AAP existence into politics is a good beginning as 70% of the population is AAM AADMI created by all political parties for their selfish needs. Time this 70% AAM AADMI gives a chance to AAP Candidate and see them for 5 years and if we are not happy then we have the right to throw them out. Arvind Kejriwal has said the day AAP becomes Khaas Aadmi Party that day the people of this country will lose hope and this will give rise to corrupted political leaders, corporates and government servants to take control and rule over 70% AAM AADMI. Give AAP a chance if we want change. It is now or never.
