Karnataka CM, BJP chief accused of poll code violation

Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah during a road show in Mysuru said that it's his last election and he will fight from Chamundeshwari in the upcoming assembly poll in Karnataka.

In the 2013 Assembly elections, Sandesh Swamy had contested opposite present Primary and Secondary Education Minister and Congress leader Tanveer Sait but lost to him by securing 29,180 votes in Narasimha Raja Constituency.

Speaking to press persons at a private hotel here yesterday, Kumaraswamy said that he knew the pulse of the electorate of Chamundeshwari Constituency and CM Siddu was bound to lose the polls. Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Kumaraswamy had predicted Siddaramaiah's loss if he contests from Chamundeshwari. "I am confident that the Congress will get a majority on its own".

Mr. Kumaraswamy requested the people to elect JD (S) candidates as the "NDA government at the Centre and the Siddaramaiah-led government in the State have been neglecting farmers".
