Sullia: Dakshina Kannada district BJP president and Puttur MLA Sanjeeva Matandoor has predicted that BJP candidate Nalin Kumar Kateel will defeat the coalition candidate Mithun Rai with the huge winning margin of 2 lakh votes in the upcoming Lok Sabha election.
Addressing the reporters at Sullia on Monday, April 1, Matandoor said, Nalin Kumar Kateel is a honest politician and there is no single allegation against him in his political career. “He has done various developmental works for the district in his two terms. He had honestly fought against Yettinahole project and attempted to sort out many problems. When there was a threat for our folk-game Kambala, he has fought for the cause of the regional culture. As he has performed his duties honestly, people of Dakshina Kannada would definitely re-elect him”, he said.
Prior to this, Nalin Kumar Kateel interacted with the members of BMS Autorickshaw Owners’ and Drivers’ Association and sought their support.
Former MLC Capt Ganesh Karnik, MLA S Angara and other leaders like Harish Kanjipili, Suresh Kanemaradka, Subodh Shetty Menala among others were present.
