Bengaluru: 'Attempts being made to end my political career', claims BJP candidate Yogeshwar

Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru

Bengaluru, May 14: BJP candidate from Channapatna C P Yogeshwar has alleged that energy minister D K Shivakumar and his brother D K Suresh gave JD(S) leader H M Revanna a 'supari' to end his political career.

At a press meet in Ramanagaram, he alleged, "Congress and JD(S) joined hands on May 10 and bribed voters with energy minister D K Shivakumar’s black money. Twenty leaders who were with me were brought over by the opposition," he alleged.

"JD(S) state chief H D Kumaraswamy who is contesting from Channapatna made use of this opportunity. Irrespective of the party, victory in this constituency will be by a tiny margin.

"If I lose, I will serve BJP as a loyal party worker. In case by-election is held, and party wishes, I will contest from whatever constituency the party gives," he said.

In Channapatna, Yogeshwar was pitted against HD Kumaraswamy from JD(S) and transport minister H M Revanna from Congress. In previous election, Yogeshwar had successfully contested from this seat on a Samajwadi Party ticket and defeated Kumaraswamy’s wife Anitha Kumaraswamy. A few months back, he quit the SP and joined the BJP.

Rumours of the pact between DKS brothers and Kumaraswamy were making rounds and it is said that Kumaraswamy wants to avenge the defeat of his wife. Meanwhile, D K Shivakumar is supposedly holding grudge against Yogeshwar for quitting Congress and making allegations against him and his brother D K Suresh.

    If there is threat to his life then why didn't he lodge complaint with law enforcement or approached Election commison of India instead of press conference?

    This person has contested elections in every possible party in last 10 years. No ethics, morals or policies. He just cares about if he is contesting elections or not. Today he is in BJP, I'm sure by the time the next Vidhana Sabha Elections come he would have quit BJP and joined Congress or JDS or JDU or SP or BSP or AAP or some party you have not even heard of. He is just obsessed with contesting elections

    Yogeshwar, Yeddy and his master Modi could have called in the bribe masters Reddy brothers — so now you could either do some yoga or blame Yeddy and Modi for ditching you!

    Dear Mr. Yogeshwar,
    Finally you accepted your defeat..! Don't blame DKS , Revanna or Kumaraswami or anybody. This is POLITICS..!! Now DON'T enter AAP party and spoil it. Better do some social work without politics and enjoy the life.
