Food and Civil Supplies Minister B Z Zameer Khan said that CM HD Kumaraswamy has done a mistake in Mandya during Lok Sabha elections, by not inviting the Congress leaders for canvassing.
He said that, in Lok Sabha elections, he took all Congress leaders into self-assurance, and JDS candidate, LR Shivaramegowda succeeds with 3 lakh votes. But when his son Nikhil is in competition, he did not take any Congress leader into confidence. Also, he gave a statement against Congress leaders.
In the assembly elections, eight Congress candidates were defeated, he should have taken all of them before declaring his son’s nomination. In Tumakuru, JDS ruler HD Deve Gowda will succeed by the over 2 lakh votes and also said that in the next elections Siddaramaiah will become Chief Minister.
