BANGALORE: Karnataka Rakshana Vedike (KRV) has fielded 10 candidates for the BBMP elections.
Brimming with confidence of winning all 10 seats, KRV President TA Narayana Gowda, said that the intention of his candidates was to make Bangalore a clean city. “Bangalore has lost its glory. We want to restore its past glory by pressurising the BBMP to allot more funds for providing basic amenities,” said Gowda.
Blaming the authorities for the unplanned growth of Bangalore, he said that Bangaloreans faced acute water shortage. “There are many areas where drinking water is being supplied once in 10 or 15 days. Our priority is to find a solution to this.” Gowda said that the KRV had volunteers but no money to fight candidates who are ready to spend crores of rupees in these elections. “There are a few voters who ask what they get if they support a KRV candidate, while other political parties are ready to pay Rs 1,000 per vote. We have no money to bribe voters. We depend on our struggle for the protection of Kannada,” he said.
The KRV candidates are contesting from Doddabidarakallu, Dr Rajkumar ward, Gayathrinagar, Lingarajapuram, Srinagar, Dharmaraya Devasthana, Nandini Layout and Vasanthanagar.
