Bengaluru: Two days after filing his nominations for the Hassan parliamentary seat, JD(S) candidate Prajwal Revanna visited former chief minister Siddaramaiah and Deputy Chief Minister Dr G. Parameshwar to seek the support of the Congress party for his candidature.
Prajwal, who arrived alone, spoke with both leaders for some time, before heading back to Hassan for his election campaign. Speaking to reporters after meeting Siddaramaiah, Prajwal said his family had maintained good ties with Siddaramaiah and he knew the former CM from his childhood.``He has promised to campaign for me in Assembly constituencies like Kadur, Arakalgudu, Arasikere and Hassan (where Siddaramaiah's community, the Kurubas are present in large numbers). I have come here to seek his blessings,'' Prajwal said.
Answering a question, the grandson of JD(S) supremo H.D. Deve Gowda said he was not scared of Hassan BJP candidate A. Manju, just because he was able to ensure a huge gathering when he filed his nomination.
“I have never criticised him, nor I will resort to such a style of politics. You can get a crowd by paying money, I don't need to do such things,'' he added....
