The Nagapura ward corporator, B Bhadregowda from the JD(S) is most likely to be the next Deputy Mayor of Bengaluru.

Senior leaders from the JD(S) held a meeting with the former prime minister H D Deve Gowda to finalise the candidature for the deputy mayor’s post on Monday, after Gowda returned to Bengaluru from an international tour.

The Congress-JD(S) coalition in the BBMP council agreed upon a Congress corporator for the Mayor’s post and a JD(S) corporator for the Deputy Mayor’s. Accordingly, Jayanagar ward corporator from the Congress, Gangambike Mallikarjun was elected Mayor on September 28. The post of Deputy Mayor is reserved for a general candidate this time. 

Among the aspirants from the JD(S), including BM Kaval Bairasandra ward corporator Nethra Narayan, N Rajashekar from Vishwanath Nagenahalli ward, and Imran Pasha from Padarayanapura, party leader B Bhadregowda is most likely to be elected.
