Hassan: In a shocking decision Prajwal Revanna who won the Lok Sabha election from Hassan constituency announced his decision to resign from the post of MP.

Clarifying his decision, which comes less than 24 hours of his victory, Prajwal said that he is vacating the seat for his grandfather HD Deve Gowda.

The JDS supremo who gave up the Hassan constituency in order to launch Prajwal and contested from Tumkur constituency. He, however, was defeated by BJP’s GS Basavaraju.

Speaking to reporters here on Friday Prajwal said, “Deve Gowda is the founder of our party. He sacrificed the Hassan seat for my sake. His place needs to be restored, so I am resigning. He can contest the by-elections from here,” he said

While JDS had contested in seven out of 28 Lok Sabha seats, Prajwal became the lone JDS candidate to emerge victorious in the elections which saw the BJP decimating its opposition by winning 25 seats. The regional party’s alliance partner Congress contested 21 seats and won just one.
