Athani: ‘Hindutva Firebrand’, BJP MLA Basangouda Patil Yatnal has mocked Congress MLA Lakshmi Hebbalkar for her statement against BJP candidate Mahesh Kumathalli (earlier disqualified from Congress).
In a video which was shot on Saturday, November 30, addressing the gathering Yatnal has mocked at Hebbalkar.
Taunting at the earlier statement of Hebbalkar against Kumathalli stating, “Being a woman I managed to get Rs 1200 crores sanction from the previous government, which you couldn’t manage to do being a man”, he said, “Yes madam, looking at your face everybody will sanction funds. I know so as to what happens in Bengaluru. Everything is an open secret. As far as Kumathalli’s ‘being a man’ is concerned, is there a necessity for Kumathalli to show his masculinity in front of the CM. Hebbalkar says she is capable of doing many things. We too know a lot….. “
“You never know when she will end politically. Earlier, she used to call Ramesh Jarakiholi ‘sir’, later D K Shivakumar became her ‘sir.’ Both had a terrible time. If she had spoken lightly about me, I would have bashed her up”, he added.
Meanwhile, he cautioned and suggested Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa that this may be his last term as the CM and hence he should work in such a way that people remember him forever.
