Bengaluru: Revenue Minister R Ashoka on Sunday said that the BJP leaders will never forget the sacrifice made by the disqualified MLAs


Ashoka’s comments comes a day after the Election Commission announced that the by-elections for 15 Assembly constituencies in the state will be held on October 21, while the counting of votes will be held on October 24.

Addressing pressperson at the Bengaluru airport said that the disqualified JD(S) and Congress MLAs will be compensated in one way or the other and that the party will not leave their hand for the support they provided.

He further expressed confidence that Congress and JDS will never fight any election together because the whole state knows how Congress betrayed JD(S) in Mandya Lok Sabha election.

By-elections for 15 seats in Karnataka will be held on October 21 announced Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sunil Arora at a press conference here.


The elections have been necessitated after the then Assembly speaker, K R Ramesh Kumar, had disqualified 17 MLAs which eventually led to the fall of the JD (S)-Congress coalition government headed by then chief minister H D Kumaraswamy.

Kumaraswamy had resigned as the chief minister after losing the trust vote which paved the way for the BJP-led government in Karnataka under incumbent Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa.
