'Government machinery misused'

Sooryanarayana Bhat, an independent candidate contesting from South-West teachers constituency alleged that the BJP candidates D H Shankaramurthy and Capt Ganesh Karnik have misused the administrative machinery to campaign for the election.

Addressing a press meet here, he said “through BEOs, they had convened a meeting of the teachers in Kadur, Tarikere, Chennagiri to campaign for the election. I have already filed a complaint to the Election Commission in this regard.

Teachers are unhappy with the BJP MLC who was representing the constituency for the last six years. Only if a teacher represents the constituency, then justice can be done to the teaching profession.”
