  New Delhi: Congress party has released the list of candidates for the upcoming Karnataka Assembly elections that are going to be held on May 12. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah will be contesting election from Chamundeshwari seat in Mysuru. Earlier, the chief minister had told reporters, accepting the challenge of JD(S) state president HD Kumaraswamy, "I will contest from Chamundeshwari seat on a Congress ticket and win with the blessings of the people as I said in the past." Though the 69-year-old veteran leader contested from the same seat seven times since 1983 and won five times, he was re-elected from Varuna in this district in the 2013 assembly poll. "I have full faith and belief in my voters. They will not listen to him (Kumaraswamy) or will they let me down. If he has guts, let him also contest from here. Will see whom the people will elect," he had said.

Dr Yatheendra, son of the Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah, will contest from Varuna constituency in upcoming Legislative Assembly elections. On April 8, the Bharatiya Janata Party has announced the first list of 72 candidates for the upcoming Karnataka Assembly Elections. The list was announced after a Central Election Committee meeting was held at the party headquarters in the national capital. The meeting was chaired by BJP national president Amit Shah, and the attendees include Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Rajnath Singh, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, former Karnataka chief minister B. S. Yeddyurappa, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, among others.
