Hassan: Days after Suraj Revanna, grandson of former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda filed submitted his nomination papers as JD(S) candidate for Local Authorities’ Constituency of the Legislative Council his father MLA H D Revanna, said that his family will stay committed to the family politics ban act if implemented.

Revanna’s remarks came when reporters questioned him on family politics.

He stated that singling out JD(S) as party of a single-family is not justified. Revanna further pointed out that Congress leaders, Nehru, Indira, Rajiv, Sonia, Rahul, and Priyanka, and BJP leaders, Yediyurappa, and his sons are all in politics.

He also said that their family never got involved with backdoor politics or caste-based politics.

We had issued ticket to Lingesh, a Lingayat, in Belur Constituency and made him an MLA. In Salagame constituency, we made Satyanarayan, a Brahmin, a zilla panchayat member, and made him the zilla panchayat president. Annappa Shetty was also made president,” he stated.

He further added, “How can BJP seek the support of JD(S) when the saffron party leaders claim that they eliminated the JD(S)?”

“What is Yediyurappa’s contribution to Hassan district during his tenure as Chief Minister? While an airport is being constructed at a cost of Rs 400 crore at Shivamogga, only Rs 90 crore was allocated for an airport in Hassan. I will appeal to JD(S) supremo H D Deve Gowda and H D Kumaraswamy to keep the national parties away,” he said.

“The Governor should conduct a probe on the 40% commission charge leveled by contractors. The JD(S) will not align with any other party for the MLC polls and also in the upcoming Assembly elections,” he clarified.
