Hunsur by-polls! BJP, Congress entrusts main role to dalit leaders

1 min read

Mysuru: The by- elections to Legislative Assembly from Hunsur scheduled on December 5, appears to be a nail biting episode to watch.

Close on the heels of BJP nominating Chamarajanagar MP V Sreenivas Prasad as in- charge of the constituency to ensure the victory of party nominee A H Vishwanath, Congress has hand picked former minister Dr H C Mahadevappa.

Both are prominent dalit leaders in Mysuru and surrounding districts, who were once in the same Congress party.

While Prasad parted his ways, Mahadevappa still remains in Congress. He is also a close confidante of Opposition Leader Siddaramaiah.

Congress has fielded former MLA H P Manjunath who had previously lost to Vishwanath.
