I take the blame for my defeat: Sandesh Swamy

May 22, 2018

Mysuru: Narasimharaja (NR) constituency BJP defeated candidate Satheesh (Sandesh Swamy) has said that he himself will take responsibility for his defeat.

Highlighting the role of party workers in his campaign, he said that he had never seen such unity  among party workers in the run up to the polls.

Asking the party workers not to feel disappointed over his loss, he said that he would make preparations for the next Assembly polls in  right earnest.

BJP leader M.V. Ravishankar, in his address, called upon the party workers to get prepared for fighting the next Assembly polls right now.
