Congress Releases First List Of 218 Candidates For Karnataka Polls

P Ramesh said Siddaramaiah is Tughlaq in the Congress

"Some leaders in the party fold are acting as my enemies and want to ruin my career", he said, adding that "I am a soldier of the party and will continue to strengthen the party". The Congress had followed this rule in the Punjab polls held past year. Apart from the BJP and Congress, the Janata Dal Secular party, in alliance with Mayawati's Bahujan Samaj Party for the Karnataka polls, has already announced candidates for 126 constituencies. Law minister T B Jayachandra's son Santosh Jayachandra was given a ticket from the Chikanayakanhalli Assembly seat (Tumkur). Congress is keen to improve its tally in these seats.

Out of the total candidates, 52 are OBCs, 48 and 39 from the Lingayat and the Vokalliga communities respectively, 36 from the Schedule Castes (SC) and 17 from Schedule Tribes (STs), party source said. The supporters said Srinivas would contest as a rebel candidate. It would be unfair to the party and to the electorate in Sirsi to offer himself as a candidate without being able to fully commit himself to campaign. In 2013, the party had given tickets to 19 Muslim candidates.

Rebellion has erupted in many constituencies as sitting MLAs and strong aspirants vented their ire on being denied a ticket. Former BJP MLAs Nagendra and Anand Singh and former JD-S MLAs Zamir Ahmed Khan, Chelluvar Ayyasamy, Iqbal Ansari, Akhanda Srinivas Moorthi, Blakrishna, Bheema Nayak and Ramesh Bendi Siddhagowda were also given tickets.

From every possible angle, the ensuing Karnataka Assembly polls would be a huge "acid test" for Congress president Rahul Gandhi who badly needs to retain Congress" hold over Karnataka to send across a simple message to people across the country ahead of next year's Parliamentary elections: that Rahul has "arrived' and is competent enough to take on the charismatic Narendra Modi during the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. The new faces in the Congress list include Bengaluru Mayor R Sampath Raj.

The elections for the Karnataka are scheduled to take place on May 12 and the counting of votes will take place on May 15.
