Moily starts campaign in Dakshina Kannada

Special Correspondent

MANGALORE: The f ormer Chief Minister M. Veerappa Moily and Chairman of the National Administrative Reforms Commission on Monday started the Congress campaign in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts for elections to zilla and taluk panchayat.

After attending meetings on the way from Shiroor in Udupi district to Dakshina Kannada, he addressed a press conference here.

He claimed that the Congress will secure more than 30 of the 35 seats in the Dakshina Kannada Zilla Panchayat. No other party is in a position to mobilise this kind of support in the district, following the "confusing level of politics" they played in the State and national level, he said. Claiming that it was the Congress which initiated decentralisation under Rajiv Gandhi's tenure as Prime Minister, Mr. Moily said that decentralisation has been the hall mark of the Congress . Mr. Moily denied reports that party workers are unhappy about the distribution of seats to candidates.
