New Delhi: Ending speculations, BJP announced the name of Housing Minister V Somanna as the party candidate against Opposition Leader Siddaramaiah the Congress candidate for the Assembly elections on May 10.

Arun Singh the Rajya Sabha member and Karnataka Incharge said “To make it tough for Siddaramaiah who won the previous elections by a lesser margin (at Badami), the party is fielding Somanna, the popular leader against him.”

However, Somanna will contest from Chamarajanagar constituency too, Arun Singh said.

With this, the stage is set for a good fight in Varuna, that has a sizeable number of Lingayat votes too with Somanna being a prominent Lingayat leader with a strong following in Mysuru and Chamarajanagar districts.
