Karnataka Assembly Elections 2018: Senior Congress Leader Says "Outsiders" Preferred Over Own

As soon as the Congress party released its first list of 218 candidates for the upcoming Karnataka polls on April 15, the party workers turned furious over the decision, particularly those name were not listed in the first list.

Reddy said while speaking to the Hindustan Times that he was confident that his daughter would win the Jayanagar seat.

Law minister TB Jayachandra's son Santhosh is set to contest from the Chikkanayakanahalli constituency in Tumakuru district, while his father will once again contest from the Sira seat.

The Lingayat leader, however, merged his party with the BJP in 2014.

The senior leader also raised doubt on the state leadership, "It is sad that state leadership lacks the ability to take everyone along. Amit Shah is ensuring that BJP's Karnataka team is no.1 in giving tickets to the corrupt& the tainted", she wrote on the micro-blogging site.

Candidates contesting on the BJC ticket, however, should have no criminal background or police cases against them and should know to read and write Kannada, the state's native language. Our Chief Minister, along with others, came from JD (S) and so he gives more importance to them.

The party is also likely to add another 10 to 15 constituencies which will be announced in its third list, said to be on April 18 or 19, as part of its extension of mission 150.

The widespread dissidence brewing within the party is not unexpected for the Congress. Insiders say that it was, in fact, one of the reasons why the party chose to announce the candidates for almost all the 224 constituencies (barring five) in one go instead of doing it in instalments. Former minister Qamarul Islam's wife K Fatima will contest from his erstwhile constituency of Kalaburagi Uttar.

Other women nominees are Kirtana Rudra Gowda from Belur, Shakunthala T. Shetty from Puttur, M.C. Mohan Kumari from Gundlupet, K. Fatima from Gulbarga North, Motamma from Mudigere, Vani Krishnareddy from Chintamani, Roopa Sasidhar from Kolar Gold Field, Sharada Mohan Shetty from Kumta and A.L. Pushpa from Jagalur.

The first list of the BJP featured most of the party's 44 sitting MLAs and new entrants to the party like Congress veteran Mallikayya Guttedar and former BJP MP Basavaraj Patil Yatnal, who returned to the party from the JDS.

Polls for the 224-member assembly are scheduled for 12 May.
