Surgery may keep Siddaramaiah  out of poll action

Congress leader Siddaramaiah will be undergoing a laparoscopic surgery to remove stones in his gall bladder on Thursday.

Dr Ramesh Makan of Vikram Hospital said though the blood test reports are normal, there are sledges and stones in the gall bladder which have caused swelling, so the doctors have decided to go for surgery.

“The procedure is expected to be conducted on Thursday morning and he will have to stay in the hospital for 24-48 hours after which he will be discharged.  However, he will have to take rest for one week before starting his campaign,”
Dr Makan added.

However, speaking to reporters, Siddaramaiah claimed he would be discharged on Friday and said he will launch the party’s campaign in his constituency from Monday.

Hectic work

“I had stones in the bladder for many days. Due to hectic work in Delhi in the last few days, my health got upset. I will be alright and will go to the constituency soon,” he added.

About speculations that he would contest from two constituencies, he said he never had any such plan though people from Chamundeshwari constituency had been insisting that he do so. “I will contest only from Varuna,” he stated.

No bearing on the party

On protests over ticket distribution, he said there were a number of aspirants for Congress tickets. Hence, it is obvious that those denied tickets will express their feelings. But, the protests will not have any bearing on the party in the coming polls.  
As to whether he will be the contender for the chief minister’s post, he said the party high command will decide who will be the chief minister and everybody will abide by the decision.
