Bengaluru, May 25: The voters belonging to the Scheduled Caste and Tribe, who were a traditionally supporters of the Congress seems to have shifted their loyalty in the 2019 Lok Sabha election to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and it was evident as all the seven seats reserved for SC/ST was won by Saffron party candidates in Karnataka.
The Congress which had won as many as five LS seats reserved for the SC/ST in the 2014 elections, drew blank in this election as all its candidates including former Union Ministers Mallikarjuna Kharge (Kalaburagi) and K H Muniyappa (Kolar) conceded their defeat to the BJP candidates Dr Umesh Jadhav and Muniswamy respectively.
The Congress also lost the reserved seats it had won in the 2014 LS election as its candidates Dhruvanarayana (Chamarajanagara), Chandrappa (Chitradurga), B V Naik (Raichur-ST) with a big margins to the respective BJP candidates.
SC/ST should go back to their ancestral period. Its The same party congress who helped to down trodden who dint had to visit to temples. Forget about temples.. they use to show coconut shell outside resturants for their food. They forgot all the good work of Indira gandhi.. now they should not forget.. what they are now its becuase of congress
