S M Krishna who has been sidelined by the Congress in Karnataka told the media in Bangalore that he was not happy with the candidate selection process for the assembly elections.
In a meet the press programme at Bangalore, Krishna said thathe was quite surprised with the manner in which the candidate selection process took place this time. He said that from the year 1972, he was part of the selection panel which always comprised 15 members.
However this time there were 60 members and this is unweidly, the former External Affairs minister also said.
I stayed away from the selection process this time. How can we finalise candidates when there is such a big panel. It left me in the cold.
Krishna when asked to give his predictions for the assembly elections said that it is not possible to predict. Those voting do not reveal who they will cast their ballot. So its hard to tell, he said.
