Kundapur: said Kundapur Congress candidate Rakesh Malli addressed the media and said that he is confident of winning Kundapur assembly seat. "The constituency is not developed in expected terms. I have stayed in Kundapur since the last six months. People have showed their love towards me and the party has given me an opportunity. I will not go anywhere else whether I win or lose. Voters are of the opinion that they need the MLA who mixes with people and raises his voice in the Vidhana Saudha about the problems faced by them. Therefore, I am confident that the people in Kundapur will support me."
“The failure of past MLA is my gain. Besides that, chief minister Siddaramaiah in the state has provided excellent governance. He has implemented several schemes for workers. He has stressed for basic necessities. All those will yield fruit. I will show my performance if I get the blessings of the people. Roads, development of tourism and support to sports are my priorities. Several educated young people are jobless. My aim is to get employment to them," he said.
Kundapur Block president Malyadi Shivarama Shetty, Kota Block president Shanker Kunder, backward class group’s vice president Manigopala, IT cell’s Chandrashekar Shetty, Vinod Crasta, state INTUC vice-president Rahim Puttaswamy and chief secretary Suresh were present.
