Belagavi: One of the high voltage by-election assembly constituencies, Athani is witnessing verbal war between the Congress and the BJP, as MLA Lakshmi Hebalkar, while campaigning has lashed out at BJP candidate from Athani, Mahesh Kumathalli.
Campaigning for Congress candidate G B Mangsuli, Lakshmi at Kakamari on Sunday, November 24 said, “If you have no confidence in riding the horse that you have been given, that means you are a coward.” This she said taunting at Kumathalli for betraying Congress despite several offers that were made to him.
"I had helped him get ticket from Congress for the 2018 assembly election and now I have understood how ‘cultured’ he is. He has betrayed his own mother," she said adding that though Kumathalli looks innocent, he is crooked natured.
Meanwhile, she has slammed Kumathalli by saying, “Being a man, he has no capacity to convince the government to sanction funds for his constituency. Whereas, I have brought funds running into crore. People will teach him a lesson”
