Shiroor mutt seer set contest against disciple Madhwaraj

MANGALURU: The poll scenario in Udupi meeting constituency just got more fascinating with the access of a seer into the poll fray. But the decision of Sri Lakshmivara Theertha, the present pontiff of Shiroor mutt, to contest the following polls from Udupi has thrown up more questions than solutions.
It is not but sure whether he will contest as an independent or from the BJP. ``I have not approached anybody from BJP for a price ticket. In reality they had approached me to contest. Former CM B S Yedyurappa and MP Shobha Karandlaje are power that I contest from Udupi,’’ said the Seer chatting with TOI.

While, Lakshmivara Theertha regards the present district in charge minister Pramod Madhwaraj, his disciple, a succesful chief, the seer intends to contest in opposition to him since ``more must be done’’. ``I’m via and thru a BJP person. I believe that BJP will come to energy in the state this time piggy backing on PM Narendra Modi’s recognition. I’m disenchanted with the Udupi BJP right here. That’s why I need to contest from BJP and change issues right here for the betterment of the people,’’ he claimed.

With his coming into the poll fray have an effect on Madhwaraj’s possibilities? ``It is a hypothetical question,’’ the seer said. He could also be aware of the propaganda done allegedly by means of BJP that his contesting will favour Congress. ``I love Pramod as an individual, not as a Congressman. My statement of searching for BJP price ticket will have set cat a number of the pigeons a number of the aspirants and that’s why they're spreading canards,’’ he said. Incidentally the Seer had campaigned for Madhwaraj in the 2013 polls. ``I select the individual quite than party,’’ he said.

Meanwhile, Pramod Madhwaraj said that he got here to learn about Seer’s determination via media. ``I’m his disciple and likely that he will not take any step which can be inimical to my interests,’’ said Madhwaraj.

Who is Lakshmivara Theertha: The 54 12 months outdated Sri Lakshmivara Theertha is the 30th saint after Sri Vamana Theertha in the guru parampare of Shiroor mutt. .
