Mysuru, June 6:- “Former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa had hiked the salary of guest lecturers when he was at the helm of affairs. Voters of teachers’ constituency have to vote for Niranjan Murthy of the BJP,” said state BJP Yuvamorcha secretary B Y Vijayendra. He was speaking after campaigning for Niranjan Murthy T Narasipura here on Tuesday.
“Marithibbegowda, who is not a teacher, has been elected as an MLC. He has done nothing for the education field. Instead of him, voters should choose Niranjan Murthy, who is a teacher by profession. Congress, which is trying to weaken the leadership of Narendra Modi, has allowed H D Kumaraswamy to become Chief Minister. For Congress, keeping BJP away from power is important than the development of the nation. People of Mysuru have blessed the BJP by electing BJP MLAs. They have also given me political support,” he said.
“Marithibbegowda who represented the constituency thrice has done nothing for the development of education department. He has no knowledge of the education field. I have been involved in movements ever since when I was a student. I will be the voice of teachers if I am given a chance,” said Niranjan Murthy.
Zilla panchayat member Sadananda, Guruswamy, K C Lokesh, Chikkamada Nayaka, S C Ashok, and others were present. (MR/KS).
