Congress' first candidates list out, Siddaramaiah to contest from Chamundeshwari

Karnataka Assembly election

Earlier on April 8, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had released the first list of 72 candidates for the crucial Karnataka Assembly Elections 2018. "The Indian National Congress has selected these candidates for the election to the Legislative Assembly of Karnataka", tweeted Karnataka Congress. The main takeaway? Chief Minister Siddaramaiah's plans of contesting from two constituencies were nixed by party president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday.

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.

His son Yathindra who is entering politics officially with this election will contest from the constituency of Varuna. Yeddyurappa will be contesting from Shikaripura seat.

Former union minister Mallikarjun Kharge's son Priyank Kharge has been given a ticket from the Chitapur constituency from Gulbarga, a seat reserved for SC candidates. The state is now being ruled by the Congress which has a total of 113 MLAs in the house of 224. State Congress chief Dr G Parameshwara has been given the Korategere ticket despite losing last time.
