Hubballi: Congress leader Jagadish Shettar has dismissed the impact of a team of around 50 members from the Rashtriya Swamyamsevak Sangha (RSS) arriving in Hubballi from Nagpur to campaign against him in the upcoming election.
News is doing rounds that the RSS team from Nagpur is camping in the city to do the work for the BJP candidate and he reacted to the question posed by the journalists on this.
Shettar stated that the team will not be familiar with the local situation and by the time they comprehend it, the elections will be over.
Speaking to reporters after meeting Rahul Gandhi at the airport on Sunday, Shettar expressed his confidence in the support of the people of Hubballi central constituency and the Congress party.
