CHIKMAGALUR: State BJP president K S Eshwarappa said that it will not be surprising if Lok Sabha polls are imposed on the country ahead of the state assembly elections, which are still 16 months away, due to the revival of the 2G Spectrum scandal.

   Speaking to reportyers at the party office Panchajanya here on Wednesday, he said that the BJP was prepared to contest all the LS seats in the state and that the party would treat the Udupi-Chikmagalur bypoll as an “experimental election”.

   He also exuded confidence of the party’s prospects in the Lok Sabha bypoll.

   “Out of the eight MLAs in the constituency, seven are from BJP. Most local bodies and in both Udupi and Chikmagalur are held by the BJP. Our party workers are our backbone,” he said.

  “The achievements of our government and development achieved under former CM B S Yeddyurappa and his successor D V Sadananda Gowda will be the basis for our election campaign,” the state BJP chief added.

   Eshwarappa also expressed hope at resolving the differences between various senior party leaders amicably.

   He added that he too was invited to Yeddyurappa’s MLA conclave in his residence, adding that he would talk to him about the allegations of attempts to divide the Lingayat community.
