Now, Prajwal Revanna speaks about 'bucket  culture' in JD(S)

JD(S) suremo H D Deve Gowda’s grandson Prajwal Revanna, who had recently left his party red faced with his ‘suitcase culture’ remark, has now said that there is “bucket culture” (sycophancy) in the party.

He has also indirectly expressed his desire to contest from Rajarajeshwarinagar Assembly constituency in Bengaluru. While addressing a workers meeting in Rajarajeshwarinagar recently, he said that his adversaries wanted to weaken his power, as they feared that he would put a stop to corrupt practices in the party.

“Some people, who feel insecure by my political growth, feared that I would put a stop to the bucket culture in the party. They know that I will not condone corruption or illegalities in the party. So, they systematically went about weakening my power, and they succeeded in doing so,” Prajwal said.

Prajwal was referring to same speech that had got him in trouble on July 7. “A huge controversy erupted after only a part of the speech was highlighted. My adversaries wanted to taint my reputation, which I had built over a period of seven years,” he added.

Meanwhile, Deve Gowda on Wednesday said that his party would intensify door-to-door campaigning, as there were indications that the Assembly polls would be advanced to January, 2018. “As the SSLC exams will be held in March, there are indications that the election would be held in January itself.”He said that his party was all set to give a tough contest to both the BJP and the Congress, which will be launching massive campaigns next month. The JD(S), which as assured tickets to 33 sitting MLAs, on Wednesday guaranteed tickets to 40 other aspirants, including H Vishwanath.
