Winning bypolls is not a question of my prestige: CM Basavaraj Bommai

Haveri: Bypolls in Hanagal and Sindagi assembly constituencies are not a question of my prestige, but a question of the future of development of these areas, said chief minister Basavaraj Bommai on Sunday at a press gathering in Haveri.

He said that any election cannot be considered as a true compass for the future. “As chief minister, Siddaramaiah won the assembly elections from Nanjangudu and Gundlupet. But later he lost in the general elections. The entire state will decide what happens in the general elections,” he said.

Bommai expressed his confidence that BJP candidates will win by a huge margin in both Hanagal and Sindagi seats.

Commenting on the political backgrounds of both constituencies he said “the politics of Hanagal taluka are different from that of Sindagi. Hanagal has seen three decades of political rivalry between two stalwarts – late C.M Udasi and Manohar Tahsildar. For the first time, elections are being held without both Udasi and Manohar Tehsildar in the fray.”

He gave credit for the development of Hangal Tluk to the late C.M. Udasi. “Along with his political rise, Udasi built the party personally connected with everyone. None has responded in such a way to the aspirations of the people,” he said.

He also recounted the developmental activities started by the late leader in Hanagal including the Upper Tungabhadra Project, provision of basic infrastructure, Engineering college, ITI and Diploma institutes, and other educational institutes.

BJP will unveil a vision document for the holistic development of Hanagal, he said.

Replying to former chief minister HD Kumaraswamy’s allegation that RSS workers were robbing money as syndicate members in universities, the chief minister said “I don’t whom he wants to please with these allegations. It seems there is a contest between Siddaramaiah and Kumaraswamy to berate RSS to appease minorities.”
