Former C'maglur MP's wife to contest bypolls

Addressing a press meet, Lalithamma said that BJP should recognise the 30 years of hard work rendered by D C Shrikantappa for the party.

“BJP, which is in power in the State, has totally neglected us after the death of my husband. As an MP, Shrikantappa had built the party in grassroot-levels by serving people without any discrimination,” she said.

“I have taken a decision to contest the election based on the request of people. I will contest a s rebel candidate if BJP do not give me the opportunity,” she asserted.
Shrikantappa’s son Ashok said that his father did not part BJP even when he was defeated in the 1994 assembly election.

“Shrikantappa had won the confidence of people by bagging hat-trick victory in the election to the Parliament since 1998. However, BJP has neglected us completely after his death,” he added.
