Asnotikar's supporters celebrate SC verdict

Correspondent



Supporters of Anand Asnotikar, MLA, taking out a procession in Karwar on Thursday.

Karwar: Supporters of Anand Asnotikar, who returned to Karwar as MLA after seven months, took out a procession to celebrate the Supreme Court verdict in his favour.

They burst firecrackers during the procession which ended at Subhash Circle where a public meeting was held.

To fight for justice

Addressing his supporters, Mr. Asnotikar denied that he had revolted against the Bharatiya Janata party (BJP) and said that his fight was for social justice.

He said that he never revolted against the BJP leadership for the greed of money as alleged.

He had requested the government to sanction a medical college for Karwar. The problems of Karwar city would be addressed in the next two years of his term, he added.

The ban on sand mining and stone quarrying had affected the economy of the taluk, he said.

Focus

His focus would be to resolve this issue.

He said that he would continue to fight for the development of his constituency and the judgment of the apex court had strengthened his will to fight for justice.

Prasad Karwarkar, district BJP president, said that the return of Mr. Asnotikar as MLA would strengthen the party's base in Uttara Kannada.
