Mysuru, November 19:- “The victory of BJP candidate AH Vishwanath in the ensuing Hunsur by-election will be a victory for former Chief Minister late D Devaraja Urs and Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” said Health Minister B Sriramulu.
He was speaking after Vishwanath filed his nomination on Monday.
“Our government was formed due to the sacrifice by Vishwanath. It was he and SM Krishna who introduced midday meals for children. Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) which does not exist in the nation are trying to defeat BJP,” he added.
“Narendra Modi has asked us to win the by-polls. Vishwanath will become a minister if he wins. Congress leader Siddaramaiah had become a chief minister because of the sacrifice of Vishwanath, whom he later tried to finish politically. Siddaramaiah has no ethics to speak about changing political loyalties,” Sriramulu said. (MR/KS)
