Nanjangud and Gundlupet by-election results will be a trial for the 2018 Assembly elections, said former Minister and BJP candidate for Nanjangud Assembly seat V Srinivasa Prasad.
He was speaking to media persons at a private programme in the city on Friday.
He said, “This by-election will be a pathway for the Assembly elections. By-poll results will teach a lesson to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and to his high-handedness. Siddaramaiah has tarnished my reputation and I was removed from the cabinet as a result of a political conspiracy. This by-election is the right time to prove to those involved in the conspiracy.”
