JDS-fieldMangaluru: Yogesh Shetty, president of district unit of Janata Dal (Secular), said that the JD(S) will field its candidates in four constituencies, while its alliance partner, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), will field its candidate in one constituency in Udupi district.

Addressing a joint press conference here, Mr. Shetty said that the JD(S) wil field Gangadhar Birti from Udupi Assembly Constituency; Ravi Shetty from Byndoor, and Prakash Shetty Thekkatte from Kundapur.

The candidate for Kaup will be decided in a couple of days. The BSP will support the JD(S) candidates in all these four constituencies in the district, he said.

Uday Kumar Tallur, president of the district unit of the BSP said that the party will field its candidate from Karkala Assembly Constituency.

The name of the candidate for Karkala and 19 other Assembly seats will be finalised after April 14. The JD(S) will support the BSP in Karkala.

To a query, Mr. Yogesh Shetty said that there was pressure on him from people to contest from Kaup. But there were aspirants for the Kaup seat. Hence, the top brass of the party would take a call on it.

The district unit of the JD(S) will focus on the achievements of the former Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy during his two-year tenure in an alliance government.

The national parties were not bothered about the aspirations and development of the State. Only a regional party such as the JD(S) would work for the welfare of the people of the State, Mr. Shetty added.
