The Congress intends to release the first list of candidates for the K’taka Assembly elections this month: Siddaramaiah
Both Siddaramaiah and Shivakumar have expressed interest in becoming Chief Minister if their party gains control of the State Congress Legislature. Party leader Siddaramaiah said on Tuesday that his party is considering releasing the first list of candidates for the Karnataka Assembly elections this month.
The Leader of the Opposition in the State Assembly expressed confidence that the Congress will win the elections, which are scheduled in April-May, on its own and create a government in Karnataka.
“We’re thinking about releasing it (the first list) this month.” “In response to a query, Siddaramaiah informed reporters. Replying to an inquiry about the party getting 1,350 applications requesting tickets, he stated, “As Congress has greater strength, as there is a wave in support of the party, many individuals have submitted for the candidature.” As the party prepares to finalise its first list of candidates, there appears to be a race between hopefuls supported by Siddaramaiah and State Congress president D K Shivakumar.
Both Siddaramaiah and Shivakumar have expressed interest in becoming Chief Minister if their party wins power in the state. According to party insiders, hopefuls from both sides have sought for tickets in about 80 seats, with competition expected to be fierce in approximately 30-35 sectors.
Congress is claimed to have concluded that winnability will be the primary criterion for ticket distribution and is expected to rely on internal polls to choose candidates, with the majority of the 69 current MLAs likely to be maintained.
While the JD(S) has already revealed a preliminary list of 93 candidates, the ruling BJP has yet to make a decision.
In response to a query on former Minister and mining baron G Janardhana Reddy’s new party announcement, Siddaramaiah stated that while anybody can launch a new regional party in a democracy, the people ultimately determine whether to accept it and its candidates.
Asked about whether Reddy’s new party ‘Kalyana Rajya Pragati Paksha’ will assist the Congress as there is a notion that it will split BJP’s votes, the former Chief Minister stated, “we (Congress) are not reliant on another party. We shall triumph only on our own power. Let someone start a new party or the BJP and JD(S) say whatever they want; we will undoubtedly win.”
Many leaders, including former Chief Ministers Devaraja Urs, S Bangarappa, B S Yediyurappa, and now Minister Sriramulu, had tried to build a regional party in Karnataka, and what happened to them is now part of history, he said. “I’m not belittling them, but ultimately people decide in democracy,” he said.
The grand old party has set a target of winning at least 150 of the 224 Assembly seats in order to win the election and return to power in Karnataka.
