Besides the submission of nomination papers, K S Eshwarappa held a rally in Shimoga where the unmistakable saffron flags further fanned the rebellion. The Congress also faced the heat from its ticket aspirant G B Vinay Kumar who filed his papers as an independent candidate from Davangere.

The BJP's Narasimha Nayak submitted his application as a candidate for the Shorapur Assembly constituency which was vacated by the death of Raja Venkatappa Naik. The Congress has named Venugopal Naik, who was yet to file his papers.
