He was accompanied by two other main BJP aspirants — sitting MLA S.A. Ramdas and former MUDA Chairman H.V. Rajeev — and a host of other party leaders.

The procession was accompanied by a host of folk and cultural troupes.

Speaking before the procession, Srivatsa said he is an ordinary BJP worker and the party has given him the ticket, for which he is extremely happy.

Maintaining that there is no disgruntlement in the party, Srivatsa said he would launch his campaign under the able leadership of Ramdas and Rajeev. Expressing confidence about victory, he said that he will take all party leaders of the Constituency into confidence and engage them in campaigning.

    He says he is an ordinary BJP worker. These saffron-clad thugs say the same BS.
    Congratulation, you are elected, even before you filed your nomination paper-coutesy of Lord Krishna Narendra Modi- as SOM Ganapahy refers to him, and you would be his Yadava!
    This is the beauty of Indian democracy under Lord Krishna Modi. The winners are already decided even before the polls open next month!
