‘Go Back’ slogans greet Deve Gowda in Tumakuru

March 25, 2019

Special pujas to ‘Vikasa Vahini Prachara Ratha’  

Mysuru: Massive rally in Mandya ahead of Nikhil Kumaraswamy filing his nomination papers, ‘Go Back’ slogans greeting JD(S) Supremo H.D. Deve Gowda in Tumakuru where he filed his nomination papers today and special pujas to JD(S) campaign rally vehicle ‘Vikasa Vahini Prachara Ratha’  atop Chamundi Hill were some of the highlights of today, the penultimate day for filing nominations.

While the JD(S) Supremo filed nomination in Tumakuru, his grandson Nikhil Kumaraswamy will file papers to contest as the alliance’s joint candidate from Mandya where he is pitted against Sumalatha Ambarish, an independent candidate who now has BJP’s backing.

Gowda, who is facing rebellion from local Congress leaders led by sitting MP S.P. Muddahanumegowda in Tumakuru, will contest as JD(S)-Congress’ joint candidate.

In Tumakuru, hundreds of Muddahanumegowda’s supporters and people shouted “Go Back” slogans against Deve Gowda this morning at a rally taken out before Muddahanumegowda filed his papers.

In Mandya, Congress and JD(S) leaders are pulling all stops to ensure that Nikhil’s nomination paper filing ceremony is a grand success. Faced with severe opposition from party cadres, Congress and JD(S) leaders have been put in an embarrassing position in Mandya.

Nikhil’s rally to be taken out in Mandya is aimed at sending a message of ‘unity’. The JD(S) is organising a massive rally to counter the swelling crowds that gathered at Sumalatha Ambarish’s rally.

Vikasa Vahini Ratha  

At the Chamundi Hill this morning, special pujas were performed to Vikasa Vahini Prachara Ratha, a modified air-conditioned bus in which CM Kumaraswamy and other leaders of JD(S) and Congress will campaign for the victory of Nikhil.

Later speaking to reporters, the CM denied the allegations of discontent brewing between coalition partners and lack of coordination between both party leaders and workers over joint campaigning. He said that he and both party leaders will campaign for the victory of coalition candidates in all 28 LS seats. He also came down upon his political opponents for maligning the image of H.D. Deve Gowda.

    I am seeing this news only in SOM, so shamelessly and conveniently reporting to appease the masters in BJP.
    Couple of people shouting go back doesn’t need a space in Front page headline isn’t it? be it #gobackShobha or #gobacksimha or #gobackyeddi or #gobackhdd

  2. It is sad that the political discourse has become personal. Shouldn’t the discourse be about policies rather than personalities?

    Go back on Pigs family … ! Its vision of reality ..! let me not deny the election results will teach them a very good lesson. Now they even started spilling money in Mandya. Bast…s

  4. Annoyed says:

    @Rao; Get over it, man!

  5. In view of the ugly turn political discourse is taking of late, ‘Go back’ sloganeering, releasing doctored and morphed audios and CDs to discredit the opponents can in reality mean nothing and should be taken with a pinch of salt by all concerned.On the other hand our democracy expects all the contesting parties to come and stand before the people and explain their basis for seeking support so that they can arrive at a fair enough judgement on whom to vote in the ensuing very important Lok Sabha elections.

  6. Be Civil says:

    This go back slogan is wrong! One may disagree with Mr. Deve Gowda, but he has every right to go and canvass wherever he wants in Karnataka. This applies to all other politicians. The people who thought of this slogan attacking Mr. Deve Gowda should be ashamed for degrading political discourse.

    Personal attacks on your opponent is wrong and disgraceful! What a Shame!

    Ohh Laugh..! I can recall a Politician from Tumkur saying * This is not Bombay Red Light Area* and this refers to the context Devegowda ( Mudhiya’s) Entry to Tumkur. There’ even a viral watsapp messages being fowarded about Kari Idly. I see there^s Selfishness in this family. Anyhow Avar Sothare , adhe avarige (Mangagalige ) Thakka Paata.
