I take criticism from BS Yediyurappa as his blessing in this election…His wish for me (to lose) will convert into success for me,” said Jagadish Shettar. BJP leader BS Yediyurappa’s said that Jagadish, who joined Congress recently, “will lose elections”.

Challenging Shettar to win on a Congress ticket in the region, Yediyurappa said at a meeting in Hubballi, “Jagadish Shettar has backstabbed the BJP and the members of the party. With all his selfishness, he left the party and joined the Congress. How can this happen? We should make sure he will be defeated here in Hubballi. I can write with my blood that he will lose this election on a Congress ticket.”
