Dhananjaya to stay in BJP

By Our Staff Correspondent

MANGALORE, MARCH 22. The former Union Minister and four-time MP for Mangalore, V. Dhananjaya Kumar, today dismissed rumours that he was planning to resign from the BJP and join some other party.

Addressing a press conference here, Mr. Dhananjaya Kumar said that, in fact, he was happy that the party had found a new face to contest from Mangalore. The party must have found D.V. Sadananda Gowda to be a better candidate and he was not at all unhappy with the choice. He would help the party do even better in the coming elections, he said.

He said there were indications that the party was planning to assign him some party work at the national level and he would be leaving for New Delhi after conferring with the State leadership in Bangalore on Tuesday.

He said he was not the only BJP member of dissolved Lok Sabha who had not been renominated. There were 19 others. He said the party had its own mechanism to assess the chances of candidates in different constituencies and the assessment was done scientifically and in a foolproof manner. Moreover, he was not expecting anything more from the party as it had given him the chance to contest elections four times and made him a Minister more than once. He said BJP took collective decisions and did not base its ideology on individual whims and fancies.
