HD Devegowda has blessed me to win LS elections: Pratap Simha

Mysuru, April 15:- During an election meeting last week, Janata Dal (Secular) supremo H D Deve Gowda, while seeking support for the coalition candidate, C H Vijayashankar, mistakenly called him Vijaya Simha. Buoyed by what Deve Gowda said, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Pratap Simha, who is contesting from Mysuru-Kodagu Constituency, felt Deve Gowda has already blessed him to win.

Unable to recall Vijayashankar’s name, Deve Gowda once said Vijaya Sankeshwar and once said Vijaya Simha. At the end of his speech, he called upon the public to support coalition candidate, Vijaya Simha.

Addressing the media in the city on Saturday, Simha said his victory was certain and hoped Deve Gowda’s words would come true. Simha alleged that Siddaramaiah was doing politics based on caste.

“Siddaramaiah’s hand is behind A Manju and Sumalatha Ambareesh contesting from Hassan and Mandya Constituencies respectively. Minister GT Devegowda has alleged that Siddaramaiah has backstabbed the coalition. Siddaramaiah has made bigger damage already,” he said. (MR/KS)
