Maintained voter’s interests
“I know Horatti from his first election. Before starting his public life he worked as a teacher and organised the teaching community. He has won the affection of teachers. Horatti has been winning every election on his own strength and never turned back. He has been winning every election easily and improved his personality through his work. His 40 years of public life is ideal and has always protected the interest of the voters. He is known for straight talk but does not keep anything in his heart. Horatti has been close to almost all the chief ministers. Hailing from Bagalkot district, he is spending most of his life in Hubballi, and working as the voice of North Karnataka. He played a vital role in the establishment of Law University in Hubballi. I wish people’s welfare decisions would be taken under his guidance. Horatti has done justice to people by taking decisions above the party with which he is associated . Let his experience help in all-round development of North Karnataka”, Bommai said.
