2 min read

Mysuru: Darshan Dhruvanarayan, son of Late KPCC working president R Dhruvanarayan, who died of cardiac arrest on March 11, has been given a ticket by the party to contest from Nanjangud (SC reserve) after Santemarahalli (that ceases to exist).

Dhruvanarayan was a ticket aspirant from Nanjangud and had been working in the constituency until his untimely death.

After his demise, Dhruvanarayan’s supporters had demanded that Darshan be given a ticket to contest from Nanjangud.

Former minister Dr H C Mahadevappa too was in the race for Nanjangud constituency. But, after his fellow party worker, Dhruvanarayan’s sudden demise, he decided to make way for Darshan.

During his visit to Dhruvanarayan’s house to offer his condolences to the family, Dr Mahadevappa had stated that “Darshan is like my son, Sunil. I am also in pain over the sudden demise of Dhruvanarayan, who was an active party worker. Darshan should be nurtured like my son. So, I will withdraw from Nanjangud race.”

Late Dhruvanarayan was a twice MP from Chamarajangar, represented Santemarahalli and Kollegal Assembly Constituency one each time. Known for his hard work, Dhruvanarayan was ahead of other Parliamentarians in utilising their PMLAD fund.

A law graduate from a foreign university, Darshan Dhruvanarayan is a political novice. He was never seen with his father in political circles. Banking on sympathy votes the party has offered Darshan Dhruvanarayan a ticket. But it is to be seen whether Dhruvanarayan’s political legacy will bring Darshan Dhruvanarayan votes.
