Dr. H C Mahadevappa while speaking to media in Maysuru regarding his name being spread as a probable candidate for the LOK Sabha elections, stated that “I am not contesting the LOK Sabha election for any constituency.”
“It is common to hear one’s name during the election time. My candidature is left to the party high command. I am not interested in contesting an election now. I will work for the party candidate and I am a party worker.”
Mahadevappa lost to JD(S) candidate Ashwin Kumar from T Narasipura constituency in the Assembly elections.
