Chiranjeevi refuses to take Rahul Gandhi's offer of party post

Chiranjeevi refuses to take Rahul Gandhi's offer of party post

The Congress had followed this rule in the Punjab polls held previous year.

Current Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah who has been contesting from the Varuna constituency since 2018 will be contesting from the Chamundeshwari constituency in Mysuru in the 2018 elections, and his son Dr Yatheendra will be contesting from Varuna. "The party central leadership announced the names in the afternoon", BJP national media co-in-charge Sanjay Mayukh said over phone from Delhi on Sunday. Congress party leaders concede that winning Karnataka Assembly polls would strengthen Rahul's bid to replace Modi at the Centre as he would be able to muster the non-BJP parties under a common umbrella so as to forge a "Rainbow alliance" (similar to the 2004 scenario) ahead of next year's general polls. Congress is keen to improve its tally in these seats. There are 84 parliamentary seats reserved for candidates belonging to the scheduled castes. Fifteen candidates are Muslim, seven Brahmin and two candidates are each from the Jain and Christian communities, they said. Twenty-four candidates are in the age group of 25-40 years, 49 in the 41-50 group, 72 in the 51-60 group, 66 in the 61-70 group and seven candidates are above the age of 70 years, the sources said.

Rebellion has erupted in many constituencies as sitting MLAs and strong aspirants vented their ire on being denied a ticket. "Local population believe that investigation is motivated, the real culprit is being let go and they're trying to fulfil their political criteria".

Meanwhile, BJP is also on an outreach mission to woo the dalits. The new faces in the Congress list include Bengaluru Mayor R Sampath Raj. The results of the election to the 224-seat Karnataka Assembly will be out on May 15.
