Mangalore, 29 Mar 2014: “Creating more employment opportunities in Mangalore is my priority . . . ” said B. Janardhana Poojary, Indian National Congress Candidate contesting from Mangalore Lok Sabha constituency.


In an exclusive video interview to, Mr. Poojary said “There are many colleges and Universities in Mangalore and lots of youngsters graduate every year. But when they come out with a degree they find only darkness in front of them. It may be in the industrial sector or agricultural sector, my primary aim is to create more employment in the district.”



To the straight question who was his opponent in Mangalore and why he has been targeting NDA prime ministerial candidate-Narendra  Modi,  Mr. Poojary said “It is not his creation. The scene is created by BJP leaders as they appeal for votes in the name of Modi and not in the name of their local candidate.” Mr. Poojary also challenged Modi to fight the general elections against him from Mangalore.


When asked whether he is ready to fight against Modi from Modi’s constituency,  Mr. Poojary  replied in negative. He said he has full confidence on Mangalore voters that this time they will elect him to the Lok Sabha.


Mr. Poojary brushed aside AAP idea that a Legislator should contest again and again saying “ You can’t wipe out elders. They are experts.”


About Yettinahole Project,  Mr. Poojary firmly said he will not allow a single drop of water from Netravati to flow outside the district. He said that the district with so many business establishments, hospitals, schools and colleges is already facing the scarcity of water. He assured that for the people of other districts who are facing water scarcity he will try his level best for an alternative arrangement.



On a lighter note Mr. Poojary also said that in this country many foundation stones for many projects were  laid in the past,  but very few have been completed.

We know Mr. Poojari made reforms in Banking and loans. But why he was defeated in previous elections? Can anybody put a light on that. Also my humble request to Mr. Poojari - can he give us an update what action he had taken when Mangalore Udupi highway work stopped for more than a year...

Mangalore need good leaders like Mr.Poojary. He is a good leader with good track record. If congress can control the corruption, then congress is having good chances. All the very best to Mr.Poojary. Congress Jai Ho

Janardhan Poojary is a senior politician from Indian National Congress party. He was a former Union Minister and Karnataka s Congress President. During the Prime Ministership of Mrs.Indira Gandhi he was appointed as Union Minister of State for Finance in 1982 and he continued to be Union Minister of State for Finance during the Prime Ministership of Rajiv Gandhi until 1987. Later Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi appointed Mr. Janardhan Poojary as Union Minister of State for Rural Development from 1987 to 1989. Rajiv Gandhi also appointed Mr. Janardhan Poojary as General Secretary of All India Congress Committee in 1990 as well as President of Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee in 1990. He continued to be General Secretary of All India Congress Committee during the Prime Ministership of Prime Minister P. V. Narasimha Rao. Hence, Mr. Janardhan Poojary has ample experience in the government and he would be the right person to represent Mangalore in the Lok Sabha.

This guy is expert of double speak. When his congress government is going ahead with Yettinahole project why he is silent. Its the time to hand over political baton to the youngsters. We are tired of cast based politics and corruption. India needs development and progress. Leave that old political style. Enough is enough. You could not even complete the Mangalore - Udupi highway for last 5 years, until when you will fool the voters of coastal Karnataka. Step aside, we dont want promises anymore

Good initiative bellevision and thanks to Mr.HM Pernal. These politicians remember the public welfare only now. All change colors during elections. They had enough time to take the country to development. But all have failed. there is no Political will. I am sure given a chance AAP will surely change everything and we will have a corruption free developned India in 5 years. jai ho AAP

Dear Mr.Poojary when you will give opportunity for the youth. You have already fought 5 - 6 elections, what else you want to achieve now. Because of your ineffective and ineffecient ways this country has suffered enough. Step back and let the youth change the destiny of this great country. Enough looting countries resources.

Narendra Prabhu, Mangalore Sun, March-30-2014, 12:45
Congress has ruled for last 10 years in the center, why they were all sleeping all this time and now coming up with big promises. What they are thinking, public is fool ? 10 years is more than enough to achieve anything in any country. I am sure congress must be wiped out for their corruption, caste based politics, dynasty poltics

Good Luck Mr. Poojary! May people elect you!! May your promises be fulfilled!!!
Rajendra K, Mangalore Sun, March-30-2014, 9:44
Inspite of losing 3 consecutive times, congress leaders kept hope on Mr. Poojary and given one more chance to prove his charisma to win this election. Instead of attacking Modi all the times, he should try to convince the voters with his future plans, how he can maintain the communal harmony in the region, how he can help to build the economy, development of the infrastructures, how to overcome the acute shortage of power and water during summer..etc

Interview with JP voiced for publicity! even he may be intellectual, honesty but when it comes for good administrator he should see all people equal and why there is minority and majority, why the differentiating, why discrimination, what makes minorities lesser opportunist compare to majorities!!..really disgusting factor of politician and this leads to communal disharmonious element and hence my opinion Congress leads as biggest communal party!!..why there is points of minority welfare, why there no points plan for majority, do we believe majorities are scapegoats, these politicial id**ts looks smart for vote banks...real shame

Compared to his opponent Janardana Poojary is a tall leader, good orator and knowledgeable person. He is right leader to represent and lead educated population of undivided DK.
Ronald Sabi, Moodubelle Sun, March-30-2014, 7:23
Pleased to see Elias and HM with MP prospect Poojary. He is an experienced, simple and non corrupt politicians. He was in full flow during Indira govt and his actions saved banks today! Say no more and take example of Maharastra Apex and ICDS! I do not mind change of leadership at centre. In DK we need Janna and JPH to put a break on vandalism of dirty moral policing and attitude of jobless culture masters! Wishing all the best to Janna!

The idea of creating new openings for youth of Mangalore is very much appreciated.At present the youth after their studies, look for better prospects in USA, Gulf, Europe etc.To curtail this the idea of creating employment opportunities in Mangalore gives more weight.If I recollect my past memories there were instances where Janardhan Poojary has helped many youngsters to pave their way to earn their daily bread.He is a man of word. If the request is genuine he will see that the request is materialised positively.According to my opinion Mr. Janardhana Poojary is the right candidate to be chosen as member of Lok Sabha, Mangalore
Philip Mudartha, Mumbai Sat, March-29-2014, 10:50
Here is prompting for a follow-up interview with Poojary: 1. He has opposed Niddodi UMPP. The district is notorious for power cuts. What is his solution? 2. He promises big industries as job creators? Where is power, water, land and logistics for imported inputs? He opposes what people oppose. How will he lead? 3. He is an honest socialist famous and remembered for loan melas as minister of state for Banking in IG cabinet. Banking and financial services didn t like it then. How would he inspire confidence now to attract investment required to give jobs? 4. His is a ecologically fragile environmentally sensitive constituency. How would he balance his job creation vision with preservation of nature? I have heard people in Mangaluru opining that Poojary will win because the sitting MP has failed and dropped opposition to polluting industries, land acquisition for public services and infrastructure etc. How Poojary will succeed where he failed when people do not co=-operate?

Excellent interview by bellevision. Hope Mr. Poojary will keep up his promises after he get elected.
