When independent candidate and writer Prof K S Bhagawan was asked wheth­er he is participating in the election to damage the Con­gress, he said, “I do not be­long to any party and even not happy with the performance of these parties in the state and the central governments. I am contesting this election as an independent candidate. I sought advice from 1,000 voters spread over four districts during my tour and out of them, 998 suggested I should contest. I am following their words. Our Constitution has also quoted a few funda­mental duties which promote rationalism, develop scientific thinking and humanism. To­day we hardly see people do­ing their duties. If I am elect­ed, I will spread this message and work for the development of scientific temper.”
