Finally, CM Siddaramaiah has put an end to the speculation regarding his contest from the second constituency. He has filed nomination papers from Chamundeshwari and he will file nomination soon from Badami in Bagalkot district. Siddaramaiah has chosen Badami, where Kuruba (shepherd) is a dominant community. The sitting MLA BB Chimmanakatti belongs to this community.
Is it not strange that CM Siddaramaiah, who boasts that there is no anti-incumbency wave against his government and proud of pro-poor schemes, has chosen a constituency where his community is dominant? If he was so confident then why didn't he choose any other constituency in Old Mysore region?
Does it mean that irrespective of your performance only caste matters at the end of the day? What is your say on this?
