Former DySP Anupama Shenoy is all set to take the political plunge by entering the fray in Kaup Assembly constituency.

Speaking to reporters, she said she is keen on taking on former minister Vinay Kumar Sorake in Kaup Assembly constituency. She said she has launched the party Bharateeya Janshakthi Congress with an aim to incorporate the new force. The only criteria for the candidates is that he or she should not have a criminal background and should be familiar with the Kannada language.

She added that the Election Commission has offered ladyfinger as the symbol for her party. "Corruption is rampant and there is a need to cleanse the system," she said.

She said, "I am not totally against Vinay Kumar Sorake, however, I am sad by his lukewarm response to most of the burning issues."

Strongly condemning the privatisation of the district maternity and children hospital, she said that a close nexus between the BRS ventures and Congress government has paved the way for well-planned strategies in handing over the hospital. She added that she has approached the court over the watch that was worn by the chief minister as it was gifted by Dr Girish Chandra, a close associate of B R Shetty. "Added to the woes, B R Shetty has a criminal background as a case against him is pending in the court," she said. Former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa has denotified some 11.25 acres of land in the name of B R Shetty in Rampura village. Moreover, around 2.30 acres of land has been sold to Shetty for 3.75 crores as against the market value of Rs 54.45 crore, she added.

She said she would be now concentrating on Chikkamagaluru, Uttar Kannada, Kodagu and Dakshina Kannada and other districts.
