    Difficult to remain honest in electoral politics’

    Bengaluru Stating that it is difficult to remain honest and survive in politics,Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Tuesday said that even he was not 100% honest when it came to electoral politics.

    “Tomorrow people will criticise me for saying it. It is a fact that it is difficult to be 100% honest. But you can still remain in politics without compromising on your ideology and thought process, which do not require money,” he said during a felicitation of A.K. Subbaiah, former MLC, here.

    Electoral politics is very corrupt. If you enter it, you will have to win and you can’t do that if you are honest. If you want to bring change and prevent power from falling into wrong hands, you will have to win.”

    Turning his attention towards writer Devanuru Mahadev, who had earlier termed the current political situation “underworld politics”, Mr. Siddaramaiah urged him to contest the next Assembly elections. “You do know (electoRal politics) since you have not contested elections.”
