Mysuru: Revanna Siddaiah, former IPS officer and local Congressman quit the party and set the phase to battle against Chief Minister Siddaramaiah by supporting the JDS.
Revanna Siddaiah, who resigned from the party on Sunday, reported his choice in a press meet. He said that he would support G T Devegowda in Chamundeshwari and will support BJP candidate in Varuna. “I don’t contradict the Congress as a party, yet CM Siddaramaiah is my rival. He treated me like a pet dog. Now, he has come to throw biscuits again during the election,” he said in a dissatisfaction.
