Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s government will be unstable after the Nanjangud by-poll and the results will set off a pro-BJP political wave in the state said MP Pratap Simha.
Addressing a press meet here in the city on Sunday, he said, “The Siddaramaiah- led government will be unstable after the by-poll as Congress will lose in the Nanjangud constituency assembly election. Senior politician Srinivas Prasad will join the party officially on January 2. The Congress is struggling to find a suitable candidate to field against Prasad. It is sure that BJP will win the by-poll and this will indicate a new political wave in the state.”
“Over 11 seats will be bagged by BJP in the next assembly election in Mysuru region and BJP will come to power in the state in 2018 and Yeddyurappa will be the next the CM,” he added.
Speaking about the NEET controversy, Pratap said, “The Centre had sought the opinion of all the states nine months ago, before the announcement of holding NEET, a single entrance test for admissions to medical colleges across the country, in regional languages. But the state government did not ask for inclusion of Kannada language, but now the state government has woken up from slumber following the pressure exerted by the people through social media.”
“The state government must print science textbooks in Kannada language and also encourage the students to take up examinations in Kannada. As the Kannada version of the Science textbooks is not available, how can the students take up the exam in Kannada?” he questioned.
Former MUDA Chairman Nagendra, Hotelier Rajendra and others were present at the press meet.
