Cheers:Congress supporters join MLA Krishna Byre Gowda in celebrating the results in the zilla and taluk panchayat elections, in Bangalore on Tuesday.
BANGALORE: Union Labour and Employment Minister Mallikarjun Kharge, KPCC president G. Parameshwara and his predecessor R.V. Deshpande have said the results in the zilla and taluk panchayat elections was a warning to the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party leaders, including Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa to mend their ways and not to act with vengeance. They said the people have rejected Mr. Yeddyurappa's claim that the Opposition, especially the Congress, would be dumped after the panchayat polls.
The leaders said the BJP was able to win in only 12 of the 30 ZPs though it was expected that the people would vote for the party heading the Government expecting it would deliver.
They, however, said that the results were not a referendum on any party. Mr. Deshpande thanked the voters of Uttara Kannada district for giving a landslide victory to the Congress by electing party candidates from 22 seats and pushing the BJP to second position. He thanked them for giving a majority to the Congress in seven of the 11 taluk panchayats in the district.
