hangal: Hangal and Sindgi bypolls: Nomination papers filed, candidates set for contest | Mysuru News – Times of India


VIJAYAPURA/HAVERI: As the deadline for filing of nomination papers for the October 30 byelections to Hangal and Sindgi ended on Friday, the stage is set for 22 days of aggressive campaigning.
All major political parties announced exhaustive lists of star campaigners and election veterans who will tour the two constituencies over the next fortnight. A day after BJP announced Shivaraj Sajjanar (Hangal) and Ramesh Bhusanur (Sindgi) as its candidates, they filed their nomination papers respectively. In Sindgi, ministers KS Eshwarappa, Govind Karjol, V Somanna, Shashikala Jolle, Bhyrathi Basavaraj, CC Patil, MP Ramesh Jigajinagi, MLA Basanagouda Yatnal and others accompanied Bhusanur.
Former deputy chief minister and MLC Laxman Savadi, incharge of the Sindgi campaign, said chief minister Basavaraj Bommai and former chief minister BS Yediyurappa will campaign for two days in Sindgi.
Meanwhile, Eshwarappa said Congress will be divided into two parties before the 2023 assembly polls in the state because of the tussle between Siddaramaiah and DK Shivakumar.
Sindgi Congress candidate Ashok Managuli also filed his nomination on the last day while Srinivas Mane filed his papers on Thursday for Hangal. KPCC president DK Shivakumar, opposition leaders Siddaramaiah and SR Patil, former ministers MB Patil, Shivanand Patil, MLA Yashavantarayagouda Patil took part in a procession before filing the nomination. Siddaramaiah expressed confidence of winning both constituencies by at least 25,000 votes. “As prices of essential commodities are skyrocketing, people will definitely teach BJP a lesson.”
In Hangal, BJP state president Nalin Kumar Kateel, ministers Murugesh Nirani, Shivaram Hebbar and BC Patil, MLAs accompanied Sajjanar to file the nomination papers.
The BJP leaders there were upset as the party denied Udasi’s family the ticket. They had staged a protest against the high command. However, MP Shivakumar Udasi pacified them. “Some local workers wanted my family member to contest. But, our aim is to defeat the Congress,’’ he added Nirani said Sajjanar may not belong to the Udasi family, but is close to the family.
