Udupi MLA Bhat, Cong's Pramodh Madhwaraj meet for breakfast, political circles abuzz


Daijiworld Media Network – Udupi (JD)

Udupi, Jun 14: Political party workers of BJP and Congress were in for a surprise when the former and the present MLA of Udupi met for a breakfast on Monday, June 14.

Udupi MLA Raghupathi Bhat and former MLA of the district, Pramodh Madhwaraj met for a breakfast at Madhwaraj's residence. The visit was unexpected as both of them had recently engaged in a verbal spat over the unpaid salaries of the Government Mother & Child Hospital in the city. Bhat in a press meet had also said that the problem was created due to the irresponsible actions of the Congress leader during his tenure.

But on Monday both the former classmates had a very friendly breakfast. Madhwaraj also participated in the inaugural programme of the project of cultivating the barren land by Bhat held at Ammunje fields.

Madhwaraj inaugurated the project and stated that it was a good idea to initiate such a non-political project. "This project deals with cultivation on the barren land. This will also help the landowners. Let all those involved in the project reap the benefits."

Speaking at the inaugural programme, Bhat said, “This is a non-political project. A Trust has been created for this project and as an MLA of the Udupi constituency, I will be the president. I had set up Yaksha Shikshana Trust during my tenure last time. It was continued by Madhwaraj during his tenure as well. Due to the cultivation of lands, water bodies will also rejuvenate. Even Madhwaraj who lives in close proximity can benefit from this."

Madhwaraj and Bhat also planted the paddy in the fields.

Even though the meeting of two leaders might be a friendly gesture, party workers have already criticised this act on social media.

    Optics is sometimes carefully calibrated to express many things that cannot be expressed openly with the use of words, and that which may come back to haunt you at a later date. 1. In these COVID times, having breakfast together is although not recommended but still it has to be don without the mask. One criticism take care off. 2. Color of dress code, the ambience speaks volumes. 3. Visit to the stable is not just a happy stroll after breakfast. All in all there are many humorous side one can see if you just collate all the political slogans these big wigs collectively indulged in, in the past before having this healthy breakfast.

    Superb comments! Very apt and neutral. The lessons is not learnt. Today supporting Congress openly too has become a concern. The turn out for any protests called , range from 10-15 in a place like Mangalore .A one time Congress bastion has become a 'badra kote ' of BJP. Even a chunnu munnu candidate who does not know xhit will win in BJP in Mangalore. Voters are looking for other pastures as there are more options now. Its riddicullous.

    Frankly, it would NOT be shock if Pramodh Madwaraj party hops. Congress is the party that to this date has not understood the changing times. They are still with very old leaders ,old strategies who do not understand the pulse of the voters. Defeat after defeat its the same old order for decades. Today generation of voters wants to know 'what you have done?' instead of 'who you are'?. The logic is simple. Nobody can relate to some old ousted leader still talking about ' raising standards for Alpasankyatharu' and singing Mapilla Paad. Come on! .The BJP is ruthless and cut throat in this aspect , with the current crop of leaders , they are out to decimate Congress from the Indian political scene. One of the strategies adopted is deplete the future of congress by poaching its young leaders. Wonder when will sense will prevail.

    Good to see politicians from two sides working on a common cause. This is the spirit we want to see from our local political leaders. who is better is not the question here rather what they can give it to the society is the question and let all communities live together as onde vasudaiva kutumbam Pramod a a great human being with golden heart, Bhat is a politician who has tremendous potential to contribute to the society.

    Some years back Nupur Sharma spokesperson of BJP, Priyanka Chaturvedi of Congress, Alka Lamba of AAP and others enjoying in beach at Doha-Qatar. We always see them in TV debate in aggressive nature like wild cat pounching on one another on discussion most of the time. In real life they are holidaying and enjoying together. It's called politics...to grab power from one another.

Religion, color, language, and State should not be obstacles in the developmet. But if this meets for political benefits and bluffing the citizens, then I will both are stupids.
