Earlier on April 8, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had released the first list of 72 candidates for the crucial Karnataka Assembly Elections 2018.

Looking at the political history, this will be called Ghar-wapsi as Siddaramaiah won his first by-polls from Chamundeshwari constituency in 2006 by a margin of 257 votes against M Shivabasappa of JDS. The C-Fore survey, according to News18, also predicted an improved showing by the BJP, which the agency said may end up winning 70 seats in the 224-seat assembly. The party's sitting MLA from Badami, B B Chimankatti, figures in the list of those dropped this time. Karnataka is one of the eight states where polls were scheduled this year.
