Swaraj India makes a mark in its first electoral foray.

Swaraj India makes a mark in its first electoral foray.

Swaraj India had contested 11 assembly seats in the Karnataka assembly elections 2018. The results are out today. Our candidates have polled a total of 79,400 votes. This is a creditable beginning, better than other new entrants. While we did not win any seats our candidate and general secretary Darshan Puttannaiah finished second fighting against the money and power of the JD(S) which is a truly encouraging beginning. We congratulate our Karnataka team for a brave and honest battle against the corrupt political establishment.

At a time when almost all political parties in the fray dodged the real and pressing issues of the people, Swaraj India raised relevant issues. At a time when brazen money power was being used by mainstream parties, Swaraj India fought with grit & determination and very little resources. At a time when unholy attempts were being made to divide & polarise the electorate on lines of caste & religion, Swaraj India kept itself away from any such divisive agenda.

We would like to thank the voters of Karnataka and promise to be a genuine people’s voice with energy & vigour. The battle continues.
