Mandya Lok Sabha constituency JD(S) candidate C S Puttaraju said he has no ill will against either Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha nor Melkote MLA K S Puttanaiah.
Puttaraju told reporters here on Friday that the constituency needs more people like Puttanaiah who work for the welfare of farmers. "If Puttaniah has anything against me, I will talk to him and resolve the issue," he said.
Thanking the KRRS workers who supported him, he said the JD(S) would win with a margin of more than one lakh.
Puttaraju clarified that the JD(S) will not support NDA at the Centre if a coalition comes to power.
"We made a huge mistake by supporting the BJP to form the government in the state. That will not be repeated. JD(S) supremo and former prime minister H D Deve Gowda would rather retire from politics than support the NDA," he said.
JD(S) district president D Ramesh was present.
