‘Byelections won’t affect govt.’: It is not an index for the future election – CM Bommai

Bengaluru, November 3, 2021 (www.justkannada.in): “The Hanagal and Sindhagi byelection results will not affect our government in any way. It is not an index for the next elections,” opined Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai.
Speaking about the byelection results today, he expressed his view that it is quite common for the opposition parties to contend that the byelection results are an index for future elections. “The can we call the Sindhagi byelection results as a foundation for the next elections…? The index should start from Sindhagi itself. Congress has lost with a huge margin of 31,000 votes. Let them learn from it,” he said.
“When Siddaramaiah was the Chief Minister, the party won in the Nanjangud byelections. But they lost at the same place within one year. They tasted defeat even in the next elections. Hence, the byelection is not an index for the universal elections,” he said.
