Mysuru, February 23:- “To defeat communal Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, youths have to contest the elections in large numbers. Congress should give a ticket to city Congress president Dr B J Vijay Kumar from Mysuru-Kodagu Constituency,” said Mysuru District Like-minded Advocates’ Association at a press meet held at Mysuru Press Club on Friday.
“Dr Vijay Kumar has been involved in pro-farmer and pro-Dalit movements. If he is given a ticket, he will be supported by all. He stands for secularism and will protect the rights of voters. In the end, whoever gets the ticket from Congress, we will support them,” said the secretary of the association, Thimmaiah.
