Lucky few manage to get ticket for their wards

A large number of Congress leaders had sought party ticket to their children. But only a few, including Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, managed to get tickets to their wards.

The party high command issued tickets to Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy’s daughter Sowmya R from Jayanagar, former Union minister K H Muniyappa’s daughter Roopa Shashidhar from KGF, Law Minister T B Jayachandra’s son Santosh Jayachandra from Chikkanayakanahalli.

Amit Ghatge, son of former MLA Shyam Bheem Ghatge will be fielded from Kudachi in Belagavi district while S K Srinivas Kariyanna, son of former MLA Kariyanna has been issued ticket from Shivamogga Rural. Vijaykumar Ramakrishna, son of former minister G Ramakrishna, will contest from Gulbarga Rural. 

However, Public Works Minister H C Mahadevappa, who was pitching for his son Sunil Bose’s candidature from T Narsipura constituency, suffered a setback with the party leadership rejecting his plea.

Mahadevappa made a last-ditch effort to get a ticket for his son on Sunday, meeting Rahul Gandhi along with chief minister and Parameshwara.
