Denial of ticket irks MLA’s followers

On hearing the news that the sitting MLA from Tarikere will not get a ticket, a large number of his followers gathered and expressed their displeasure on Sunday.

MLA G H Srinivas’s wife Vani Srinivas said, “My husband had revered Chief Minister Siddaramaiah as God. However, we have been cheated in being issued a ticket to contest the election.”

‘Back-stabbed’

“Srinivas had worked for the development of the constituency. Some party leaders have back-stabbed us. The decision will be taken after the MLA returns to the constituency.”

Zilla Panchayat member Radha said, “Srinivas should contest as a rebel. By winning the election, we will prove our mettle.”

Taluk Panchayat member Kempe Gowda said, “If the MLA decides to contest, we all will support.”

TMC former president Parveen Taj said, “Chief Minister has failed to act as promised. It is not right to change the candidate.”
