BSY to highlight failure of rival political parties

Former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa has said that he has decided not to defame any of his opponents, rather he would highlight the failure of the rival political parties.

Kick starting the campaign by offering prayers to Guru Raghavendra at Kiru Mantralaya in Otthinnenne on Friday, Yeddyurappa said that as he is the devotee of Raghavendra, he wanted to start his campaign by offering prayers here at Kiru Mantaralaya. He would seek votes based on the development work initiated by the previous BJP government in the State.

He said  that he is confident of the BJP winning 20 seats in Karnataka. “The UPA government has failed to solve the problems faced by the people. It has failed in checking rise in price of essential commodities. The incapable prime minister has called for an able leadership in the country.”


“Narendra Modi will give an able leadership to the country and will also support the idea of new wave and changes. The list of candidates from the party is almost finalised and the party can expect success, as the candidates will be able to concentrate and campaign for more number of days.”

Yeddyurappa said that the State government has failed to take up development work in the last nine months. BSR Congress President Sriramalu will contest from the BJP ticket from Bellary. He is the single person from the BSR Congress to be considered for the time being.

However, merger of the BSR Congress with the BJP has not been decided. Either father or son would be given ticket from the party to contest from Bidar.

He said following the aspirations of the people in Udupi-Chikmagalur constituency, Shobha Karandlaje is given ticket to contest. The BJP is confident of her victory.
“The differences of opinion over the selection of the candidate is common feature in all the political parties. I have no knowledge on Dhananjay Kumar trying for the JD(S) ticket to contest from DK constituency. I am making all attempt to bring Dhananjay Kumar back to the BJP fold,” former CM said.

Later addressing the gathering, the former CM said that he would file nomination on March 20.

“I would bank upon the failures of the UPA government to seek the attention of the voters.”  The UPA government is mirred in corruption and scams, he added.
