Mysuru, May 5:- “Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and Congress are misusing power to obstruct JD(S) candidate G T Devegowda from campaigning in the constituency,” said JD(S) state legal wing president A P Ranganath at a press meet at Mysuru press club on Saturday.
“Chamundeshwari constituency should be considered as a sensitive place and separate election officer should be employed. We will request Election Commission in this regard. If no action is taken, we will write to New Delhi,” he added.
“A government officer had campaigned for the Congress at Periyapattana. He should be suspended. Assistant engineer at Chamundeshwari, Mahesh is a relative of Siddaramaiah. He should be transferred with immediate effect,” Ranganath said.
“When H D Kumaraswamy was the chief minister, he had introduced several schemes for advocates and therefore, they need to support JD(S),” he said.
Pradeep, Palaksha, Shivamurthy, Yashaswini and others were present. (MR/KMR).
