Moily, Poojary clash over ’age’ factor

Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Feb 15, 2016  : The indications are very clear. Veteran Congress leaders and arch rivals  B Janardhana Poojary and M Veerappa Moily are at logger  heads once again.  There is a full-blown war  of words between  the two. Both the leaders who are also former union ministers are now involved a verbal clash over the ’age’ issue.

If Moily while speaking to reporters in Udupi on Saturday had stated that  there was no need to attach ’special significance’ to the words of  ’aged people,’ apparently hinting at Poojary, the latter has now  hit back at Moily and   has questioned his age.

Speaking to the media on Sunday, Poojary  who made a direct reference to Moily,  said "I am very well aware of   your age.   You were born in 1940 and are now 76. As per your own words that there was no need to attach importance to the  words of aged people,. there is also no need to give importance to your own words. " Why are you  part of election campaigning when your words carry no weightage?" Poojary mocked at Moily.

Poojary who seemed to be terribly upset over Moily’s remarks  said " As far as Moily is concerned, the only  truth is that he is  Moily as for the rest whatever he says is a lie and this is what people say."

Poojary questioned what wrong had he done by asking the CM to auction his costly wrist watch and donate the proceeds to the families of Siachen Martyr Hanumanthappa.

 Naveen D’Souza, Corporator , T K Sudhir and others were present.

Think the party is having pleasure in commenting on one another. Siddharamiah is silent in the front but passes the comment on the back.
