KUNDAPUR: Halady Srinivas Shetty, the MLA of Kundapur who has secured four consecutive wins from Kundapur constituency, is now seen as a tragedy hero by many BJP leaders themselves.
It is also noteworthy that Halady who had remained silent all these years, has gained widespread publicity through his sudden outburst which has even boosted the spirit of his followers who have raised voice in support of their leader
For the first time in the history of the BJP, the very followers of the party have thrown the party flag to fire. The support of his fans has also added to the strength and courage of Halady.
Meanwhile, Udupi District BJP President Udaykumar Shetty met the MLA at his residence at Halady and tried to persuade him against quitting the party. However, the meeting was of little help, sources said. On the other hand, Halady admirers feel their leader will never buckle under pressure and change his stance.
