Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) released the fourth list of its seven candidates on Monday. The saffron party announced 72 candidates in the first list and 82 candidates in the second list and 59 candidates in the third list.
Actor-turned-politician Jaggesh gets the ticket to contest from Yeshvanthapura constituency. The party is yet to announce candidates for four constituencies, including Varuna and Badami.
Earlier, in a surprising political development, BS Yeddyurappa said his son BY Vijayendra will not file nomination papers from Varuna assembly constituency. Yeddyurappa announced this decision while addressing party workers in Nanjanagudu.
