Minor hiccups greet Krishna during his visit to Mandya

Maddur (Mandya), April 26, 2013:

 Former Union Minister and Congress leader S M Krishna who set foot into Mandya district for the first time after the party was bogged down by the many controversies, was in for a little bit of a surprise. The former chief minister who campaigned for party candidates Suresh Gowda (Nagamangala) and Madhu Madegowda (Maddur) on Friday was supposed to address a public gathering at 10.30 am in Maddur.

The local leaders however were unable to gather a sizeable crowd in the morning. Only about 200 odd people were seen at the venue, forcing Krishna to head to Koppa, bordering Nagamangala and Maddur.

By noon however, the party salvaged the situation, and had ensured that there were about 2,000 people to listen to Krishna speak.


Krishna termed the BJP government as the most corrupt  government in the history of Karnataka and urged people not to elect the party in future. 

Noting that other political parties who are in fear of defeat might be distributing freebies to lure voters, he urged election commission monitor such activities.

He appealed to people to vote for G Madegowda and youth leader Madhu G Madegowda for development of the constituencies. Krishna also requested his brother’s son Gurucharan to support the duo.

The leader later campaigned for the party candidate in K R Pet.
