JD(S) leader promises sites for scribes if HDK clinches Ramanagaram

In a poll code violating faux pas on Friday, JD(S) taluk unit president Rajashekar announced during a media conference that if JD(S) state president H D Kumaraswamy was elected from Ramanagaram this poll, then sites would be distributed to local journalists. Other party leaders with him were shocked by his blooper.

Rajashekar said that plan to allot sites to local journalists was pending for quite a while and the assurance would be fulfilled if Kumaraswamy was elected and becomes chief minister.

Rajshekar tried to correct himself later, but the damage had been done. He said that Kumaraswamy would contest from both Ramanagaram and Chennapatna and would resign from the Chennapatna seat if he wins in both constituencies. Even this remark, embarrassed other leaders there.
