According to reports, sitting MP Muddahanume Gowda to file nomination as Independent candidate from Tumkur. Muddahanumegowda's decision goes against the seat sharing arrangement reached between the Congress and JD(S), according to which Tumkur seat has gone to the regional party.

Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy said that Congress leaders must look into it. He added that his self-respect won't allow him to beg before anybody.

Deve Gowda will face BJP's GS Basavaraju, a four time MP from Tumakuru. The constituency is dominated by Vokkaligas, but it has been vacillating between Congress and BJP since 1999. JD(S) has never won the seat.

According to the seat sharing arrangement, of the total 28 seats, Congress will contest 20 and JD(S) 8.

The JDS supremo has ceded Hassan seat that he had been representing to his grandson Prajwal Revanna.
