Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah to contest from two constituencies

Earlier, Siddaramaiah had said that he would take a final call for the Badami seat after consulting Congress President Rahul Gandhi. The Congress is being led by chief minister Siddaramaiah, while the BJP is being led by former chief minister BS Yeddyurappa in the state.

"A lot of leaders from North Karnataka including MB Patil, SR Patil and HY Meti all requested me to contest from a constituency in one of the northern districts". The people know what I have done for them and they will never forget that, Yeddyurappa said. "I have told the high command that I will contest from" Chamundeshwari and not from two constituencies.

Siddaramaiah restricting his campaign to two constituencies has fuelled speculations that he was unhappy that the party central leadership had not allowed him to contest from two constituencies.

He said that while Siddaramaiah was constrained to his constituency for the past four days, he, on the other hand, will be touring the state.

Meanwhile, a Facebook post on an account allegedly belonging to Yatindra stated that the Chief Minister would file his nominations from Badami in Bagalkote on April 23 has made headlines. The party announced 59 new names and a change of candidate in its latest list.

Siddaramaiah's reported wish to contest from two seats is said to have met with stiff opposition from veteran party leaders Mallikarjuna Kharge and Veerappa Moily after which it was made a decision to field Patil.

Chimmanakatti has said if the Chief Minister is not contesting, he should be the candidate. The chief minister also added that he was confident of winning from the election from Chamundeshwari constituency.

Chamundeshwari, where Siddaramaiah has won on five occasions and lost twice, has a sizeable number of voters from Vokkaliga and Lingayat communities, who are known to be aligned with JDS and BJP, respectively.

Chief Minister's son Dr Yateendra also filed his nomination from Varuna constituency.
