BJP will face Assembly polls with renewed vigour, says DVS

Former chief minister and senior BJP leader D V Sadananda Gowda has said that it is possible to revive the party in the next one month and face the Assembly elections with renewed vigour.

He said the urban local bodies (ULBs) election results were just a minor, temporary setback to the party. The results indicate that the people are very clear about their intention of not wasting their votes by supporting either the KJP or the BSR Congress. So, anti-Congress votes would naturally come to the BJP, he said.

“However, the responsibility on us is huge. We need to work harder. People will trust us,” he said. Asked how he assessed the outcome of the results in the coastal districts of Dakshina Kannada and Udupi, Gowda said he would be visiting the districts on March 17 to hold meetings and chalk out plans to revive the party. “We have no problems as such in the districts. I could not focus much on the coastal region in the recent months as I was busy touring other parts of the State,” he said.

He also said the RSS had successfully conducted its ‘baithak’ in Mangalore in February. It was attended by one lakh swayamsevaks. “Neither the Sangh nor any individual is posing problems to the BJP in its functioning. I have no complaints against anyone, including Mangalore MP Nalin Kumar Kateel or the Sangh leaders,” he said.
