Raichur, Apr 20: "Former minister, Gali Janardhana Reddy, is grappling with some problems currently. He is now busy solving them. He will never return to electoral politics," said Ballari MP and close associate of Janardhana Reddy, B Sriramulu.
Addressing a press conference here on Wednesday April 19, Sriramulu termed rumours about Reddy fighting the next election as speculation by people. He said that Reddy personally told him that he will not be fighting the election from anywhere in the state.
At the same time, Sriramulu expressed the apprehension that the relationship between him and Janardhana Reddy's brother, Karunakar Reddy, will not be the same again. "My friendship with him is a closed chapter. I do not want to say anything till the case filed by Karunakar against me is decided by the court," he stated.
Sriramulu also said that an important meeting of BJP is being held at Bengaluru on April 23 to discuss party's poor performance in the recent bypoll.
"The national executive of the party will be held next month. The party has given serious thought to the practicability of providing permanent solution to the problems of people living in slums who are being exploited," he explained.
