Gali Janaradhan Reddy’s Kalyana Rajya Pragati Paksha party has been assigned the ‘Football’ symbol by the Election Commission. Reddy will contest for the Kalyan Karnataka region from Gangavathi.
Mr. Reddy said “This is a new political episode. I am here to serve the people of the Kalyana Karnataka region and I will visit every household in the upcoming election. If political parties try to divide people in the state and try to benefit from the consequences, it is not possible in Karnataka. The people of the state have always been and will be united.”
The former BJP leader who had been expelled from the organization showed the football sign on Monday and asked the residents of the Kalyana Karnataka region to support his party in the next election. The Kalyana Karnataka area is also expected to see him field candidates from his party.
Gali Janardhan Reddy disappeared from politics following his imprisonment on allegations of illegal mining, but he returned to it in December of last year by launching his own political party. “This is a new political episode,” he continued. I will visit every home in the approaching election since I am here to serve the people of the Kalyana Karnataka region. In Karnataka, it is not possible for political parties to intentionally divide the population in order to gain political advantage. The state’s citizens have been and will continue to be one.
Reddy was also close with BJP minister Sri Ramulu, and there have been rumors of tensions between the two powerful figures in the Bellary region. Reddy, however, has denied the rumors and stated that he still has close relationships with all of his former political allies.
He has been free on bail since 2015 despite being charged in a multi-crore unlawful mining case. The court had ordered him to turn up his passport and not leave the country without authorization along with granting bail.
