Kere GP in Sringeri unique in many ways

The Gram Sabhas here witnessed large turn out of people who do not just attend the meeting but participate with great deal of enthusiasm by asking questions and clearing their doubts. With just 5 seats, this is the smallest GP as well. This year, this GP has been reserved for general candidates, which is another speciality by itself.

While some leaders said that since there are many polling booths, let there be no election and let the members be elected unanimously, JD(S) leader and GP former president Rahmatulla was adamant that election should be held, hence the election. So far, only one member has been elected unanimously.

Another speciality is that BJP and Congress who are always at loggerheads have joined hands together here. BJP and Congress have together fielded Gurige Kittu Gowda for ST seat against JD(S) candidate Thimmanna Shirlu. Gurige Ramanna is the independent candidate. BJP and Congress have fielded Narayana Mulya for BCM seat against JD(S) candidate Rahmatulla. Rajshekar Kuruchara is the independent candidate.
