Former Karnataka Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar, who jumped ship from the BJP right before the state polls after being denied a ticket, and predicted a huge victory for himself, today told news agency ANI that "money power and pressure tactics" led to his defeat from the Hubli-Dharwad Central assembly constituency. A Lingayat heavyweight, Mr Shettar lost to the BJP's Mahesh Tenginakai by over 34,000 votes but claimed his quitting the BJP and raising the pitch on the Lingayats helped the Congress in 20 to 25 seats.
