Mysuru: BJP MLC A. H. Vishwanath on Friday December 3 said that people resorting to personal vendetta during elections is not the right spirit.
Speaking to mediapersons here, he said, “Those who vote during Legislative Council elections are more or less qualified. Of late, people are trying to give a new dimension to the polls.”
He said, “This year, Council polls should stand out for a good reason. We should give a positive message to people. Congress leader
Siddaramaiah is not able to talk about anything. Each leader is out to defame the other. Money can’t rule the roost. It is our duty to uphold
the sanctity of the elections.”
Vishwanath said, “Siddaramaiah and former Chief Ministers B. S. Yediyurappa and H. D. Kumaraswamy are all making useless statements. Elections can’t become vote bazaars.”
On an alleged plot to kill Yelahanka BJP MLA S. R. Vishwanath, “All those involved in the case are realtors and we never know what is happening inside. We should not be giving a political angle to the whole issue.”
The veteran leader also lashed out at the District In-charge Minister S. T. Somashekar for resorting to derigatory comments against a
Janata Dal (Secular) candidate for the Legislative Council polls.
Commenting on Prime Minister Narendra Modi meeting former PM H. D. Deve Gowda, he said, “It was a courtesy call. People should learn from Modi how to behave with others. Siddaramaiah should learn how to behave in public.”
On the Omicron virus which is making news in recent days, Vishwanath was of the opinion that the State Government should tread carefully as the lives of school children is important.
