Hysterical BJP lawmaker sobs on camera for not making the list-1

Kalaburgi: A BJP lawmaker from Kalaburgi was reduced to tears after his hopes of making it to the BJP list stood shattered with the party choosing someone else for the seat.

Shashil G Namoshi’s emotional breakdown was caught on the camera, video of which is being widely shared on social media. Reportedly Namoshi had called a press conference and was trying to speak something but his emotions took over and the leader broke down in front of the camera. He could be seen weeping inconsolably, covering his face with his hands even as his supporters and few media personnel try in vain to pacify him.

Namoshi, has served as a deputy mayor of Kalaburgi, formerly known as Gulbarga and was a member of the Legislative Council for 12 years. He had contested the 2013 Karnataka election from Gulbarga Dakshin as a Janata Dal (Secular) candidate.

Namoshi was hopeful of making it to the second list even after his name did not figure the first list announced by BJP. The party had named Dattatreya Patil Revur for Gulbarga Dakshin while CB Patil was chosen for Gulbarga Uttar.
