JD(S) plays Vokkaliga card in Hunsur to ‘Checkmate’ Vishwanath

1 min read

Mysuru: As anticipated Janata Dal (Secular) party has played a Vokkaliga card in Hunsur.

The regional party has announced to field Somashekar for the forthcoming by- elections to Assembly from Hunsur constituency on December 5.

Somashekar who belongs to dominant Vokkaliga community is a close associate of former minister and K R Nagar MLA Sa Ra Mahesh.

A class- 1 contractor by profession, Somashekar was a front runner for the ticket ever since Vishwanath tendered his resignation. It is also his debut in electoral politics. 

Vishwanath had won the general elections on JD(S) ticket. He is contesting forthcoming by- elections on BJP ticket.

By fielding Somashekar, JD(S) wants to capitalise the community votes, to ensure the defeat of Vishwanath.

It may either benefit regional party or Congress’ H P Manjunath, but the loser should be Vishwanath, seems to be the game plan of regional party.
