Speaking to media men later, he said he was contesting the election as a loyal Congress worker and  also to ensure that the party leadership recognises good party workers. Stating that there was no question of withdrawing his nomination, he said " I neither have money nor muscle power but have the backing of large number of party workers." Regretting that sincere party workers  had no opportunity in the party  he said he was contesting so that  the party does not do injustice to dedicated workers in the future elections.

Speaking about his long association of over three decades with senior leader B Janardhana Poojary, Harikrishna Bantwal said  he   has stood by Poojary just because the  nation needed leaders like Poojary. "We want to see a Congress which was built by great men like Gandhiji, Nehru and Indira  and not a party  of leaders like Oscar," Harikrishna Bantwal said.
If elected, he promised to raise the Yettinahole issue in the Council and ensure that the project was dropped.

Several supporters of Harikrishna Bantwal including Arun Coelho, Kallige Taranath Shetty and others were present.
