Mangalore, Mar 27: Congress MP Candidate B. Janardhan Poojary said that the BJP is just seeking vote in name of Modi and do not highlights the party or its DK candidate. Hence our election battle has always remained as Poojary vs Modi.
Speaking at the press meet held at district Congress election office on March 27, Thursday, he said that Congress needs peace and does not believe in divide and rule and neither the party nor its workers support it. Congress will not implement projects like PCPIR as they are against the interest of the people.
Speaking on Gujarat riot issues, Poojary said that Modi will also have to face life imprisonment if charges proved. But unfortunately the lower court declared Modi innocent and free of charges. How can one file nomination when a suit is pending before the court if law prevails, he asked.
District Congress interim president Ibrahim Kodijal, district Congress spokespersons Kallige Taranath Shetty, Congress leaders Kodijal Ibhrahim, Ivan D’Souza, A.C.Bhandary, harikrishna bantwal, Sadashiva Ullal, Kripa Amar Alva, and former MLA Vijaykumar Shetty and others were present.
