'BJP will win Lok Sabha polls'

Eshwarappa says Chikmagalur will get its due

BJP State President has expressed confidence of winning Lok Sabha by polls with wider margin this time.

BJP State President K S Eshwarappa addressing the reporters on Wednesday at Chikmagalur. MLAs C T Ravi, Dr Y C Vishwanath among others look on.

Addressing the reporters on Wednesday K S Eshwarappa said that, of the eight Legislative Assembly Constituencies in Udupi-Chikmagalur Lok Sabha constituency, seven MLAs are of BJP.

“Both, Udupi and Chikmagalur Zilla Panchayats are in BJP’s control. More and more BJP workers are being elected for local governing bodies. Various developmental works undertaken by former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa and present Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda will be the reason for our success,” he said adding that BJP candidate Sunil Kumar will surely win the election.

When questioned, if the recent incidents and the internal problems within the party will have no impact on the election, he said that it will have an impact undoubtedly but in a positive way which will only lead the Party to success.

“Show me one pure party, which has no allegations and accusations against it? We do not have to hide our face because of any incidents. Further in politics, allegations and accusations are part of the game. We are facing several allegations but we have handled those issues in a responsible manner and we are confident of emerging as innocents,” he said adding that there might be minor differences within the party but such differences can never affect the existence of the party.

He said that when they could get complete majority, BJP did not have any option but to take support from independent candidates. At this juncture individuals who had shifted loyalty to BJP from other parties had to be given opportunity. “In this process somewhere Chikmagalur could not be given its due. In future sincere and the dedicated will be given priority,” he said.

MLA D N Jeevaraj said that a delegation from Sringeri had met the CM seeking solution to various problems. Yellow Leaf Disease has compelled planters to migrate from the district.

“The delegation has requested the CM to provide interest free loans. We have also demanded the CM to open Polytechnic College in Sringeri,” he said.

State General Secretary C T Ravi, MLA Dr Y C Vishwanath among others were present.
