Dharawad: There is no loss because the leaders left our team. We told them to retire but they are playing in another team. But the youth in our team have got a chance. They can play with their enthusiasm and win the match, taunted Union Minister Pralhad Joshi to Shettar.
Speaking at his residence in the city, he said that 20 to 30 constituencies will be affected by Shettar. We have seen the Lingayat community with respect, he said.
Congress has consistently insulted Lingayat leaders, he said and added that most Lingayats have been given seats.
