Wish you all the best |Mithun. Please work for unity amount congressmen. I request all the congressmen to support Mithun for the betterment of everyone of us. We have to clear our society from the ill treatment, injustice and goondagiri being teached by sangh parivar. We should try for sangh parivar free DK Dist. and it should follow all over karnataka.

Luqman has given a very tough fight, Rai won in very thin margin.But Rai never did any good work for congress or district but because of minority community's vote bank politics he won. Anyway hope for the best.
