Mandya: Absentee rebel leaders dampen rally addressed by Deve Gowda, Siddaramaiah


Daijiworld Media Network - Mandya (SP)

Mandya, Apr 13: Congress rebel leaders chose to stay away from the much-touted joint election rally in which JD(S) national president, H D Deve Gowda, and former chief minister, Siddaramaiah, participated in the election rallies held in this constituency on Friday April 12. By this act, the rebel leaders sent a message that they are not willing to compromise with their stand against the JD(S) in the constituency and that in the bargain and they are not averse to earning the wrath of top leadership of the party.

The JD(S) leaders had specifically chosen constituencies where rebel Congress leaders have influence. The two major election rallies were held in Malavalli, the constituency of former minister, Narendraswamy, and Nagamangala, where former minister, Cheluvarayaswamy, has considerable grip. Although their names found mention in the invitation cards printed for the occasions, many rebel leaders including Narendraswamy and Cheluvarayaswamy chose not to attend the rallies.

Siddaramaiah too took care not to criticise disgruntled Congress MLAs who kept away from the election rallies and thus failed to uphold the coalition principles. He also did not target the independent candidate fighting against the chief minister's son. His addresses were mainly confined to leveling charges and criticising the BJP.

Siddaramaiah, in his addresses, made a mention of some fake news claiming that he was in support of a particular independent candidate in Mandya constituency. He termed this news as fake, and announced that he supports JD(S) nominee, Nikhil's candidature, and requested the electorate to choose him as their representative. Without mentioning Sumalatha's name, he just said that BJP has been supporting an independent candidate, and requested people not to vote for her.

During electioneering in Srirangapatna in the past, Deve Gowda had criticised former MLA from the constituency, Ramesh Bandisidde Gowda. This had angered the supporters of Gowda, who had pledged not to support JD(S) in the election. In the past, Gowda had also taken former MLA, Cheluvarayaswamy, to task whenever he spoke in Nagamangala constituency. However, this time, he took care not to make any mention about the MLAs this time.

Minister, C S Puttaraju who had termed Cheluvarayaswamy as 'dead horse' in the past, apologised for this comment.

    All sickulars r joining not for the sake of country but only to save themselves from MODI'S clean India mission. All chaddiless have huge skeleton in their cup boards so they want to hide those from general public as MODI is hell bent on exposing them. For power /loot JDS and Khangress can stoop any low.
    The real sufferers r the old loyal booth level workers of both the chorbandhan who did not get any seat to contest. All decided by "high command" without consulting any grass root workers. Tumkur 'Mysore' Udupi Mandya and Hassan r examples of "high command"
    Even poor parameshi has lost his voice

    These people are not capable. First thing is gowda is old enough to be retired. Secondly, gowda is thinking his fly progress, not the progress of the public. Congress is totally gone case.
