BJP candidate from Kalaburagi Lok Sabha Constituency Umesh Jadhav has said that if people decide, even a strong man can be defeated in an election.
He was reacting to Congress leader and MP M. Mallikarjun Kharge’s remarks that he is a strong man and that nobody can defeat him.
Mr. Jadhav was talking to reporters in Yadgir on Saturday.
“I hope that Speaker Ramesh Kumar acts according to the law and accepts my resignation. But, unseen hands are preventing him to do so,” he said and added that the Congress leaders are creating unnecessary confusion in the matter, though the question of disqualification did not arise at all.
The atmosphere in the Congress is against prominent leaders. Thus, senior leader A.B. Maalakaraddi has quit that party and joined the BJP, he said and hoped that many more leaders from that party may join the BJP in the coming days.
To a question, he said that he would convince K.B. Shanappa and Baburao Chavan of the need to remain in the party.
