Congress leader endorses BJP\'s \'drama company\' jibe on Deve Gowda family-1

Bengaluru: Former MLA KN Rajanna, a Congress strongman from Tumakuru has stated that BJP leader Basavaraja Yatnal's statement that Deve Gowda family is a 'drama company' is correct and it is the best way one can define the former Prime Minister's family.

"I endorse Yatnal's statement. He is correct," he said in Tumakuru.

"Definitely the JDS will not win in Tumakuru. Amid Modi wave, the Congress candidate was selected from Tumakuru in 2014. How can the JDS claim this seat," he questioned.

"If Gowda had 224 grandchildren, he would have distributed tickets to them in all the assembly constituencies of the state," he chided.

Rajanna announced that he may contest as an independent candidate from Tumakuru if the JDS does not return the constituency to the Congress.
