Former minister and BJP candidate V Srinivas Prasad said that he would quit politics if he was defeated by the Congress candidate in the ensuing Nanjangud by-polls.
Speaking at a programme organised at Sindhuvalli in Nanjangud taluk, he said “Will quit if I lose in the by-polls, but will Siddaramaiah resign as chief minister, if the Congress candidate loses the battle?”
He claimed that the candidate being fielded by the Congress was only for representation purpose.
“It is an election between Siddaramaiah and I. The chief minister has said that he would depute his entire team for campaign in Nanjangud to the by-polls. Even if the CM introduces Mallikarjun Kharge and Rahul Gandhi for the by-poll campaingn, I have complete trust on the people of the constituency,” he added.
