Speaking to mediapersons, BJP candidate for Udupi Sudhakhar Shetty exuded confidence on his victory.
“The voters have two options, development versus any other party. The BJP is purely into development. Public are well aware of the developments that have taken place in the constituency for the last two terms. We have enough time to carry out the ground work. I am working under the guidance of Raghupathy Bhat. There is no question of defeat.”

MLA Raghupathy Bhat said “the conspiracies by the rival parties have added strength to our fight. We will retain the hold over the constituency with a huge margin”.

He said the poll strategy will be totally different from that of ULB polls.
“There will be no impact of ULB poll results on the party’s performance in the assembly polls”, Pramodh Madhwaraj explained.

Sudhakar Shetty was accompanied by BJP leaders Manohar Kalmadi, Gujjadi Prabhakar Nayak and Yashpal Suvarna.
