Udupi, Jan 18, 2016:  L.K. Advani, former Deputy Prime Minister and veteran BJP - Bharatiya Janata Party  leader, said here on Jan 17, Sunday that he considers it an honour to participate in the fifth Paryaya of Vishwesha Tirtha Swami of Pejawar Mutt, which he described as a “rare event.”

Speaking to media Advaniji said that he was associated with the Pejawar seer for a long time. When he  was invited to participate in the fifth Paryaya function, he deemed it a matter of “great pride and privilege,” he said.

 Advaniji  said that coming to Udupi was special for him for another reason. It was in Udupi that the BJS - Bharatiya Jan Sangh, the earlier avatar of the  BJP - Bharatiya Janata Party , won the Udupi Town Municipal Council (TMC) elections in 1968.

This victory was hailed by the BJS throughout the country as it was the party’s first foray into South India. Till then, the BJS had not won any urban local body election in South India. “But, it became a still happier event when the Udupi TMC was later declared the best-run body in the State,” he said.

 Advaniji said that during his brief stay here, he would meet the office-bearers of the party from the region and the State. He added that there was  determined effort  to see that the party keeps doing the work that it has been created for and serving the people in every possible way.
