Mysuru: Former minister and K R Nagar MLA Sa Ra Mahesh on Friday claimed that the nomination of BJP leader A H Vishwanath to the Legislative Council is in violation of the Supreme Court verdict in the case of disqualified MLAs.
Mahesh who took umbrage at his political bete noire Vishwanath said “Once an elected MLA is disqualified he or she must contest the elections to derive constitutional benefits. Vishwanath who contested the recent by- election from Hunsur was defeated in the election. But, he has been nominated to the upper house of the state legislature. However he is nominated from the category of writers”.
