Cong’s 3rd List Out, But Siddaramaiah Not To Contest From Kolar

| Updated: April 15, 2023 16:13

The Congress on Saturday released its third list of 43 candidates for the Karnataka Assembly elections, including Laxman Savadi, a former deputy chief minister and leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

According to the list, the Congress fielded Kothur G Manjunath for the Kolar Assembly seat rather than the former chief minister Siddaramaiah.

As the second constituency, Siddaramaiah intended to contest from the Kolar Assembly seat. He is currently contesting from the Varuna constituency, which was formerly represented by his son.

The party also fielded former Governor Margaret Alva’s son Nivedit Alva from the Kumta Assembly seat. The party has, so far, fielded candidates in 209 seats, including 124 seats on the first list and an additional 42 seats on the second list, and is yet to announce the seats of 15 further candidates.

After being refused a ticket to run in the May 10 Assembly elections, Savadi announced his decision to leave the BJP’s primary membership and joined the Congress on Friday.

On Friday, Savadi, a Lingayat leader in the Belagavi district, left the BJP and the Legislative Council before switching to the Congress. 

“From today onwards, I have no connection with the BJP. I will be a devoted and loyal worker of the Congress, just as I was in the BJP for 20 to 25 years,” he had said.
