Ex-CM appeals public to support KJP candidates

Close on the heels of releasing the first list of 69 candidates for the Assembly elections in the State, former chief minister and Karnataka Janata Party (KJP) president B S Yeddyurappa on Friday called upon the voters of Krishnaraja assembly constituency in the city to support party’s nominee H V Rajiv.

Addressing workers of K R assembly segment at Rajendra Kalamandira in the city, Yeddyurappa alleged that the “MLA of Krishnaraja constituency” had amassed money worth crores of rupees which he would be spending heavily during the elections.
Such a candidate should be defeated, while Rajiv should be voted to power, Yeddyurappa appealed to the workers.

Yeddyurappa said that a 25 member worker’s unit had to be constituted at the booth level.

 He also directed the workers to go door-to-door and explain to the voters about how he (Yeddyurappa) had been wronged by the BJP.

Rajiv alleged that Ramdas had failed to take up any development works in the constituency. Only during the fag end of the government’s term, did the minister play a gimmick by laying the foundation for ‘Swantha Oorina Sooru Mysooru’ housing scheme, misleading the voters, he said.

Basanthkumar son of former minister and JD(S) leader of K R Nagar Nanjappa, formally joined KJP.
