DBC cut up about DVS' name making rounds for B'lore North

D B Chandre Gowda, BJP sitting MP from Bangalore North, is upset that the party has been talking in terms of fielding former chief minister D V Sadananda Gowda from the constituency.

On Friday morning, Sadananda Gowda met the MP seeking his support for his candidature. It is said the senior leader expressed his discontent about the development.

Chandre Gowda, in his interaction with the media, said he had not been officially told that he would not be fielded this time. “Being a sitting MP, why should I be taken for granted? I will not take such a development lying down. Certain leaders are trying to hijack the party.

A party should remain an asset of the people. I had defeated Jaffer Sharief of the Congress by 60,000 votes five years ago. The party workers are happy with me. How can some people take decisions unilaterally,” he said.

Asked whether he would quit the BJP and join another party in case he continuous to be ignored, Chandre Gowda merely said that the party would have to face the consequences.

He has also written to senior leaders, including party president Rajnath Singh, expressing his resentment. Copies of the letter have been despatched to State party president Pralhad Joshi, B S Yeddyurappa and others, it is learnt.
