Let HDK contest against me in Channapatna, challenges Yogeshwar


BJP leader C P Yogeshwar on Thursday challenged former chief minister and JD(S) state president H D Kumaraswamy to contest from Chennapatna Assembly constituency and emerge victorious.
"Contesting from Ramanagar and Channapatna Assembly constituencies is a waste of money and energy. Instead, contest from my constituency, Chennapatna. I will accept your candidature sportively and will prove my might by emerging victorious," he told Kumaraswamy.

Yogeshwar was speaking at a press conference here.

"Former prime minister H D Deve Gowda and his son H D Kumaraswamy have suppressed other leaders from the vokkaliga community. The father-son duo is blackmailing voters emotionally. Deve Gowda should live upto his age while criticising others," he said.

Yogeshwar charged that the list of benami properties held by Kumaraswamy was too big.

"Kumaraswamy owns properties in Singapore and Malaysia," he said.

Yogeshwara advised Kumaraswamy to strike a pre-poll alliance with any political party as JD(S) might win between 20 and 25 seats.

"Many leaders in the JD(S) are knocking the doors of the BJP," he claimed.
