Mangaluru: MLC Pratap Simha Nayak said that Rajesh Naik had taken out a padayatra at a time when the Coastal areas including Bantwal, were facing difficult days and had done several development works in Bantwal in the last four-and-a-half years after winning the elections.
He was speaking at a public meeting held at Kuriyala Sri Lakshmi Vishnumurthy Temple premises in Kallige Village after the 12th day of the ‘Grama Vikasa Walk’ led by MLA Rajesh Naik Ulipadiguttu.
Speaking on the occasion he said, “I remember protesting in front of the Tahasildar’s Office in the riot-hit Bantwal in the past, such a Bantwal has changed so much today.
L Rajesh Naik has not done anything beyond the law, he has worked beyond his capacity when injustice has been done. He has responded to the hardships of the last people of his Constituency and that is his Rajdharma,” he noted.
“It is the nature of the Congress to make false promises when elections are approaching. It is ridiculous to make promises even if they don’t have the confidence to come to power,” he said.
MLA Rajesh Naik thanked the people of the Constituency for their cooperation in the success of the 12-day padayatra.
BJP District President Sudarshan Moodabidri said, “The BJP has fulfilled Gandhiji’s dream of Ram Rajya. He alleged that though Gandhiji had suggested the dissolution of the Congress, which was formed for the freedom of the country, the Congress had shattered Gandhi’s dream by making it a political party.
