Congress list not out yet but Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah's stamp upsets seniors

BENGALURU: The first list of Congress applicants for the meeting elections - more likely to be released on Sunday after being do away with two times - is anticipated to have six to eight new faces for Bengaluru, greater representation of women (from the former 11) and kinfolk of most sensible leaders.

Overall, the list could have the stamp of CM Siddaramaiah, whose nominees are believed to have were given the lion's proportion. Siddaramaiah's son Yathindra, PWD minister HC Mahadevappa's son Sunil Bose, daughter of Kolar MP KH Muniyappa, Roopa Shashidhar, and residential minister Ramalinga Reddy's daughter Soumya Reddy are said to have made it to the list.

The yet-to-be-announced list noticed its first casualty in former legislative council chairman VR Sudarshan, aspirant for the Kolar seat, who resigned as KPCC vice chairman. Former bureaucrat Zameer Pasha is said to have were given the price ticket. "Till yesterday, my name was in the list and has been replaced now," Sudarshan said.


Amid the discussions, former Union minister Margaret Alva's son Nivedith Alva, who was once an aspirant from Sirsi in Uttara Kannada district in a commentary said he was once retreating from contesting following the death of his father.

Party sources said Congress chief in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun M Kharge, MP M Veerappa Moily and Muniyappa expressed their unhappiness before the Central Election Committee. "JD(S) state chief HD Kumaraswamy had said Congress in Karnataka was the 'B' team of JD(S) and the CM proved it," an disillusioned birthday party chief said.


For Bidar (South), Congress sources said, Siddaramaiah had reportedly controlled to persuade the birthday party top command to offer the price ticket to former Independent MLA Ashok Kheny in spite of stiff opposition from Kharge. The latter had opposed the admission of Kheny into the birthday party and sought after the price ticket to be given to past due former CM N Dharam Singh's son-in-law Chandra Singh.


The list, which was once expected on Friday, was once held up as there was once lack of consensus over just about 32 constituencies represented by the birthday party's MLAs. Besides, minority group contributors have been peeved that they have been being accommodated in constituencies the place their possibilities of winning weren't top. "They did not want Hebbal or Vijayanagar-Hospete or Khanapur where Muslim candidates have been defeated," a Congress source said.


In Bengaluru, KPCC president G Parameshwara sought after the Jayanagar seat to be given to UB Venkatesh, whilst house minister Reddy sought after it for his daughter. Muslim leaders too sought the seat as they count it among the winnable seats in Bengaluru. Reddy is discovered to have prevailed regardless that discussions have been on until past due evening.


Going by Rahul Gandhi's commentary that he sought after to look extra women within the parliament and assemblies, sources said winnability have been given a go-by and just about 20 women can be picked.
