Chickpet Candidate RV Devaraj is a relieved man as he has got the official nod from his party. RVD has already kickstarted his mission and is meeting people one to one through his Padayatra in wards like Kempegowdanagar and Jayanagar Ward.? Not unlike 2008 election he has been given a green signal to go to people and seek their blessings. According to him, the response been very spontaneous and people are thirsting for a change.
Devraj is known to be very popular among the backward castes and among the poor. His supporters point out that the opponent MLA is nowhere to be seen during a crisis in the constituency. B. Mallikarjun, Congress leader from Jayanagar, whose wife is a Jayanagar Corporator, said this was the feedback his party was getting in Chickpet about the previous MLA. Mallikarjun is a seasoned Congressman who has learnt the ropes from veterans like Jeevaraj Alwa, Ramalinga Reddy, KM Nagaraju and now closely coordinating with RV Devaraj. Malli has also played a vital role in the previous Lok Sabha Election in making strong strategies for Krishne Byre Gowda which paid off by a complete sweep of the votes from Jayanagar and Chickpet Constituency. Thus has he earned the reputation of being a good electoral strategist, which is also how his wife Meerambike Mallikarjun won from the toughest Jayanagar Ward of Chickpet Constituency.
Malli said that people from Chickpet constituency? were making a beeline to BBMP office to enroll their names in voters list and also to double check on their names in the voters list. Majority of Backwards, Minority and other community people are pledging their moral support which in turn gives a boost to face the election, he said, adding that we are ready to face election and confident of bringing back our leader RV Devaraj, the Badavara Bandu.
