Mangaluru: The Congress party is going to win 30 out of 36 seats and over 90 out of 136 seats in the Zilla and Taluk Panchayat elections respectively in the district, MLC Ivan D’Souza said.

He said that the district unit of the Congress had conducted a survey according to which, the Congress is going to emerge clear winner in all five taluks in the district namely Sullia, Puttur, Belthangady, Bantwal and Mangaluru.

Addressing a press meet at the district Congress office on Thursday February 18, Ivan said that during the door-to-door election campaign, he and his party members got overwhelming response. He said that the public is thrilled with the pro-people schemes of the Siddaramaiah government. Ivan said that Anna Bhagya and distribution of titled deeds were among the prominent schemes of the State government that have wooed the public.

Speaking further Ivan said that the government has already distributed titled deeds to about 19,000 out of 55,000 families who are dwelling in the government land and this is a landmark achievement for any government.

Slamming the Modi led Union government, he said that the centre has failed disastrously to implement even one major assurance it made in its election manifesto. Ivan said that the Modi government came to power promising the people that it would bring back black money from the Swiss Bank however that has only remained as a promise. He also lashed at the government for not providing direct benefits of global decline in fuel prices to the citizens. “In the current scenario, petrol can be supplied at Rs 15 and diesel at Rs 20 per litre. However, this is not the case. The public is certainly going to take note of this,” he said.
