Shivamogga: I have been compared to Nitya Sumangali who has fought bravely in public life, and if I ask for a ticket, I have been compared to a low level. MLA Ayanur Manjunath said that if BJP ticket is given to me, I will make peace in Shimoga.
Speaking at a press conference, he said that in 1994, in a situation where the party could not win, he contested and won in Hosanagar. Then I won the Lok Sabha seat for the first time against Bangarappa. I have won the party by choosing the field of challenges. I won in graduate field. Shimoga is my workplace. Gutter said that if you ask for an opportunity, criticism is being compared and criticized on social media.
Eshwarappa has been given more opportunity than me. Critics on social media have no objection to this given that it has been given for 32 years. There was an objection that Eshwarappa did not have a ticket, and when he asked for a ticket for his son, I thought it was competition. Ayanur, who challenged the critics, challenged whether he should have asked for a ticket for his son.
There is no black spot in public life. There were challenges when MLA became MP. When I was an MLA, I crushed hooliganism in Tunga Etavari Yojana, Hosanagar Rippon town. He has the honor of entering the Vidhan Sabha with Ghatanugatis in the first year itself. Later I got the title of best parliamentarian.
When I became an MP, I brought the highways project. Railway ticketing was done in Shimoga during my tenure. I am the reason why the President seized the private factory. The airport under construction is a dream come true. A wind survey was conducted when Ananth Kumar was the aviation minister. Vajpayee government fell in 13 months.
Critics who don’t understand my background, don’t talk obscenely. He suggested that criticism should be qualified. He advised not to do anti-Modi activities as long as Modi is alive.
Sarasanchachalaks have requested not to go to mosques and search for Ishwara Linga. The party gives tickets. I have contacted all the BJP leaders and expressed my desire. He clarified that even if I give ticket to Eshwarappa, my stand will not change.
I have no desire to become a minister. Ayanur said that he should be made a minister and I should become an MLA, but if he does not get a ticket, he said that the party is giving a ticket to the question asked by the media about your stand.
