LS Polls: I will contest only from Kalaburagi and not from Kolar: Mallikarjun Kharge

Agency News

Kalaburagi, Feb 21: Congress leader in the Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge today underlined that he will not change his Kalaburagi Lok Sabha constituency and reports appearing in a section of the press of contesting from Kolar is far from truth.

Addressing a press conference here on Thursday, Mr Kharge termed as false the news appearing in a section of the press that he has faced anti-incumbency factor in Kalaburagi Lok Sabha constituency and will contest from Kolar. " Kalaburagi is my motherland and I was born and brought by the people of Kalaburagi. I never think without Kalaburagi in my political carrier. The Kalaburagi voters are my real god and goddess and in the election even these real god support me or not I will not look for another constituency."

Mr Kharge has credit of winning nine Assembly and two Lok Sabha elections. If he decides to stick with Kalaburagi, then he will have to face Congress rebel candidate Umesh Jadhav , who is most likely to join BJP soon. (UNI)
