Mysuru: BJP MLC H. Vishwanath said that my inner voice pricking me that I was reason for formation of such corrupt Government in the State. Therefore, in the 2023 elections, I am going to support the Congress party, which is like my mother, with my friends,” declared H. Vishwanath
Speaking at the protest organised in front of the Gandhi Statue near the Court on Monday April 3, he said that it is a lie that I left the JDS because I did not get a ministerial post. He said, “I saw the demonic tendency in the Coalition Government and knowing that it would not benefit the State either, I stood at the forefront and worked for the formation of a new Government.”
He said I became Hunsur MLA because of Deve Gowda. I will always respect him and Former Chief Minister D. Devaraja Urs. Out of fifty years of active politics, I was in Congress for more than 4 decades,” he recalled.
“We supported the BJP’s double engine Government believing that it would be good for the people if only one party was in power in the Central and State. However, the dream was dashed. We realised that we had cooperated with the corrupt Government. Many people alleged that I have defected after receiving money. However, in the presence of State In-Charge Arun Singh at the BJP office, I told Former Chief Minister Yediyurappa that you are a corrupt Chief Minister, resign and step down. If I had received money, there would have been no morals to criticise him’,” he said.
‘Though many attempts have been made to blunt my sharp tongue, I have not given up. I will adhere to the same policies in the future too,” he said. There are rumours that I have become a Member of the Legislative Council because of the BJP. But I was appointed as MLC by State Governor nder cultural and literary quota and those who criticise should know this and I do not belong to any party ideology.
