Nanjangud – Nanjangud Assembly constituency winner Kalale Keshavamurthy has said that his victory was due to the pro-active role played by Chief Minister Siddharamaiah. “The CM has relentlessly strived for my victory during the last six months and the welfare works he has initiated in the last 4 years have helped me,” he said.
He added that Chamarajanagar MP R. Dhruvanarayan and Mysuru District in-Charge Minister Dr. H.C. Mahadevappa’s contributions to the constituency had also contributed immensely for him to emerge victorious.
Keshavamurthy also said that he would strive for the development of the constituency. Thanking the voters for their support, he said that he would put sincere efforts to solve the long-pending problems of the constituency.
When asked if he would remember JD(S) leaders H.D. Devegowda and H.D. Kumaraswamy, Kalale thanked both the leaders for not fielding their candidate for the by-poll.
Gundlupet Assembly constituency winner Dr. Geetha Mahadevaprasad too recalled the contributions of the CM. “He ensured my victory and in the past too, the CM and my late husband H.S. Mahadevaprasad have contributed to the development of the constituency,” she said.
“Today is the 100th day of my husband’s death and the voters have blessed me to carry on the legacy of my husband,” she said and added that drinking water and filling up of lakes in Nanjangud would be her priority.
