Bengaluru: In what seemed to be a jibe at Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy who is on temple run praying for the victory of his son and JD(S) candidate, Mr Nikhil Kumaraswamy in Mandya, Abhishek Gowda, son of Mandya Independent candidate Sumalatha Ambareesh said visits to temples or poll surveys would not be able to change the result as the verdict is hidden in Electronic Voting Machines (EVMS) with the truth slated to come out on May 23.
Abhishek was in Mandya to attend a function organised by a fan. Talking to reporters he said May was very special for his family as the Lok Sabha results would be declared on May 23 while May 29 happens to be his father's birth anniversary. Besides, his debut Kannada movie 'Amar' will hit the silver screen this month.
Commenting on Nikhil Kumaraswamy's comment that he need not come to Mandya to drink coffee or tea with his friends, Abhishek said people of Mandya would call him to have a cup of tea or coffee and he didn't want to disappoint them. However, he could not make it since he was busy in the post-production events of his debut movie. Replying to a question, Abhishek said his mother or her supporters had not got any survey done to know her poll prospects.
“I knew the Mandya result on polling day itself but it needs to be formally announced on May 23. My father's dream house project is underway in JP Nagar in Bengaluru and after that, the construction of our house in Mandya will start,” he added....
