ULB polls: Parties on preparation mode

Mysore, Feb 17, 2013, DHNS

 Following announcement of urban local body polls to be held on March 7, brisk political activities have begun in all the prominent parties.

The Mysore city (district) Congress committee (MCDCC) on Saturday held a meeting at a private hotel in the city. The meeting chaired over by the city unit president C Dasegowda resolved to adhere to the vice-president of All India Congress Committee (AICC) Rahul Gandhis’ call to give priority to the active party workers.

Those corporators who have enjoyed the powers of mayor will be denied ticket to contest again and also seven corporators of the party who had switched sides to BJP under ‘Operation Kamala’ only to return to the party fold later.

However, 50 per cent of the sitting corporators elected on Congress ticket are likely to be given ticket again. Among 70 corporators (65 elected and five nominated), Congress has the highest of 21 corporators.

For ticket aspirants, the applications are being issued at the Congress office on Sayyaji Rao road.

For general category applicants, the fee is Rs 4,000 and for SC and ST Rs 2,000.
Narasimharaja MLA Tanveer Sait, former MLA M K Somashekar, former mayor Vasu were prominent among other leaders who attended the meeting.

Similar is the scene at Janata Dal (Secular) party office, with applications being issued from February 16. For general category, the fee is fixed at Rs 2,000 and for SC, ST and woman- Rs 1,000.

Decision

City unit president of the party Koppal Rajanna told Deccan Herald, the final decision over the candidates will be taken after a meeting of former chief minister and JD(S) state president H D Kumaraswamy in the city on February 22.

BJP will be issuing applications from February 17, but without charging any fee, said its city unit president Shivakumar, who was attending the meeting of State unit of the party in Bangalore on Saturday.
