BJP Releases Second List Of Candidates For Karnataka Assembly Elections

Arriving in Mysuru on Monday to resume his campaign in Chamundeshwari, Mr. Siddaramaiah said he had faced several Assembly elections in his career, but had never entered the poll fray from two constituencies.

Former BBMP commissioner Siddaiah has been fielded from Sakaleshpur (SC) constituency, while former IAS officer Syed Zameer Pasha is the party nominee from Kolar.

On Sunday, the Congress released a list of 218 candidates and said it will announce candidates for five seats later and will support an ally in one seat.

On March 31, addressing a press conference in Mysuru, party president Amit Shah distanced himself from Janardhana Reddy, saying he was not part of the BJP.

In the 2013 Assembly elections, the Congress had won nearly 60% of the rural seats in a four-cornered contest involving the BJP, Congress, JD (S) and the KJP then helmed by former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa.

V. Somanna faces disproportionate assets cases for allegedly amassing wealth during his tenure as housing minister. He was later acquitted by the courts. "They are given tickets based on their performance". Supporters of Prakash Kandre from Bhalki burned posters of Yeddyurappa and the BJP flag as a sign of revolt.

The second list was released a day after the party's central election committee met in New Delhi to finalise the candidates' names for the May 12 elections.

Siddaramaiah's son Dr Yatheendra will contest from Varuna constituency. These candidates are expected to be declared in the third list, along with 68 others. There is stiff fight between the ruling Congress and the opposition BJP with the JD (S) too gearing up to prove a point that it can't be wished away Hyderabad-Karnataka, termed as most backward region, comprising the six district-Kalaburagi, Bidar, Yadgir, Raichur, Koppal and Bellary-play a crucial role in shaping the prospects of any political party.
