Hindus neglected, Congress defeated: MLC Bhoje Gowda

Mangaluru: The humiliating defeat suffered by the Congress party in the coastal region was the result of neglecting the Hindus, said S L Bhoje Gowda, JD(S) MLC for South West Teachers' Constituency.

"Coastal region was a Congress stronghold. Five years back Congress had dominated this region. During the recent elections, I feel that Congress neglected the Hindus completely which led to their defeat,” said the MLC.

Mr. Gowda addressed a press meet at the Circuit House here and said, "I have been advising our party representatives not to favour any religion. We should treat everyone equally without any bias. We should win the confidence of the people and respond to their problems. People have chosen me as their representative in south west teachers’ constituency MLC election. People have trusted me and I have to respond to their problems on behalf of my party and chief minister H D Kumaraswamy."

“I am planning to open my new office in Mangaluru, so that it will be easier for me to stay connected with the people of coastal belt. We need to revive our party in the coastal belt and all our members are ready for it. I have appealed to our higher education minister and representatives of teachers to conduct a review meeting to respond to the problems faced by teachers and lecturers," he informed.
