Udupi, March 29, 2016: Meenakshi Madhava Bannanje has been elected as the new President of Udupi CMC while Sandhya Tilakraj was elected the Vice President  on March 29, Tuesday. Both are from the Congress.

cmc If the President’s post was reserved for a general category lady candidate, the Vice President’s post was meant for an SC/ST lady candidate.

The candidates for top posts were earlier chosen at a meeting of the party held under the leadership of MLA Pramod Kumar.
