Bengaluru: Speaker K R Ramesh Kumar has approached the election commission (EC) against his own party's candidate from the Kolar Lok Sabha (LS) constituency, K H Muniyappa, objecting to the use of his image in the election handbill.
In his letter to the EC, Kumar stated that he is in a constitutional post and a few vested interests are trying to defame him and his post by using his photograph. He requested the district administration to take action against those who are responsible.
It can be recalled that Ramesh Kumar and Congress LS candidate K H Muniyappa have accused each other of working against the party's interests in the Kolar LS constituency. The former has even openly expressed his displeasure against the latter's candidature.
