HASSAN: After the Karnataka High Court disqualified him as Hassan MP, Prajwal Revanna, in his first reaction to the the development at Holenarsipur, said, “All this is just a test of God. I will discuss it with the lawyers and decide on the next course of action”.
“I came to know about the high court order in the afternoon and everyone should abide by the court order. So, I will discuss with my father H D Kumaraswamy and grandfather H D Deve Gowda on what to do next. Many complaints were given on various issues, so it needs to be seen on what basis the decision has been made. The lawyers have assured us that they will do whatever they can legally”, Prajwal said.
He added, “We gave all the documents when I filed my nomination from the Hassan parliamentary seat. Filing nomination papers is not new to us”.
To a query on him being barred from contesting any election for the next six years, Prajwal questioned the media about where such an order came from. “Only the membership is invalidated. We will approach whichever court we have to. Where does it say that I am barred for six years from contesting elections? This is all speculation. Let’s see what will happen next, why should we worry?” he said.
“We will discuss with our lawyers and our seniors, Deve Gowda and Revanna about the High Court judgment and decide on the next legal step. Even though the high court has given its judgment, I can work as usual on the ground. My supporters and people of the constituency need not worry”, he added.
Prajwal Revanna also said he will approach the Supreme Court with an appeal against the high court verdict.
