Speaking confidently to reporters in Mysore, Member of Parliament Pratap Simha expressed certainty in his victory, stating, "No matter who contests against me in the Lok Sabha elections, I will win by a margin of 2 lakh votes." He emphasized his appeal to voters across party lines, stating, "I am a candidate for voters of all parties. All parties have Modi fans, and they all vote for us." Simha further strengthened his position by highlighting the recent alliance with the JDS party, noting, "This has further strengthened our coalition."

Regarding the alteration in the English letters of his name, Simha dismissed any connection to numerology, clarifying, "Numerology is different; this change was due to writing issues in English and Hindi. I've always adapted my name in English to retain its Kannada essence." He emphasized the insignificance of this change concerning elections, emphasizing past electoral victories, stating, "I've won twice with the same name. The people of Mysore, who were unfamiliar with me initially, have supported me twice."
