Karnataka polls: G Janardhana Reddy campaigning for B Sriramulu and not for BJP, says BS Yeddyurappa
Amid criticism over mining baron G Janardhana Reddy taking part in electioneering in poll-bound Karnataka, state BJP chief BS Yeddyurappa on Sunday said the former minister was campaigning for his friend B Sriramulu and not for the party.
The BJP’s presence in the region had largely diminished because the mine lords, the Reddy brothers, had become politically insignificant.
In a shot in the arm for the ruling Congress in Karnataka, the party on Monday won two seats, wresting the prestigious Bellary Rural from BJP which managed to retain one constituency in the fiercely fought 21 August by-polls.
He has close links with a jailed mining tycoon from the southern Indian town where the scandal has put thousands of miners out of work.
For anyone familiar with the game of one-upmanship in power politics in the country, Sriramulu's re-induction is clearly seen as the BJP’s desperate attempt to win back the Bellary seat.
The BJP's hope of winning 20 seats in Karnataka may be a distant one given the disarray over the choice of candidates.
