Mysuru, April 24:- Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has left for Badami from Mysuru to file his nomination for the state assembly elections. He is expected to file nomination in the afternoon.
“I am an MLA since 1983 and BJP leader B Sriramulu is in politics since 2004. Let him understand politics first and then speak,” he said responding to Ramulu’s statement that Chief Minister would lose at both the constituencies.
“Former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa is a weakling and a tainted person. People will not accept him. Whoever contests from Varuna will lose against the Congress. Yeddyurappa’s elder son B Y Raghavendra was made an MP. Does it not amount to family politics? I am not the spokesperson for the BJP to speak about them,” he added.
“In a recent survey, 30% of the voters opined that I should become the Chief Minister again. What does it mean? The Congress will come back to power again. I don’t believe in surveys but we will be back to power again in the state,” he said.
“BJP doesn’t have its existence in Mysuru region. They have not won even a single constituency. It is just a drama. I am ready to face anybody,” Siddaramaiah said. (MR/KS).
