Karnataka BJP were in big-shock when their Ramanagara candidate Chandrashekar announced that he has retired from by poll-elections just a-few-hours before polling, all this while sitting in DK Shivakumar's house along with DK Suresh. "I tried calling Yedyurappa, he didn't respond and no other leader responded. Union-Minister Sadananda Gowda also didn't help. I've had trauma in last-15-days because I'm fighting it alone," said Chandrashekar.
