Mangaluru, Nov 21, 2019: Husain Katipalla, former general secretary of the Suratkal Block Congress Committee has blamed former MLA Moidin Bava for the party’s utter defeat in 22 out of the 23 wards in the Suratkal block limits during the recent MCC elections.
Speaking to reporters here on November 21, Thursday, Husain also demanded the resignation of all office bearers of the Suratkal Block Committee of the Congress. He also said that Bava should at least now keep distance from the Congress.
He further claimed that the sidelining of all sincere Congress workers including former MLA Vijaykumar Shetty had led to the defeat. He also alleged that Bava earned position in the Congress owing to his money power.
Former mayor Gulzar Banu who also spoke referring to the fracas involving Bava and her son, said her son had mistakenly assaulted Bava while trying to counter a person who tried to assault him for questioning denial of ticket to her.
