The sitting MLC from Congress has not visited any place in the district in his term of six years, which further strengthens my victory. I have organised the party from Bangarpet to Bagepalli and workers of both the districts have declared their support for me,” he claimed.

On the other hand, election observer M Sadiq witnessed the nomination submission at the office of the Deputy Commissioner N Prabhakar who is also the election officer.
