Chief Minister Siddaramaiah faced another round of embarrassment as JDS supporters opposed star campaigning in Chamundeshwari assembly constituency. Janata Dal (Secular) supporters protested against Kannada actor Darshan's campaign for CM Siddaramaiah at Naganhalli village. Hence, actor Darshan had to cut short his campaign.
CM Siddaramaiah is contesting from Chamundeshwar against sitting MLA GT Deve Gowda of JDS.
According to reports, when asked about JDS supporters protest against the actor's campaign, CM Siddaramaiah said, "I came to know that a Zilla Panchayat member had called Darshan for the campaign. But I don't know about the incident."
It may be recalled that CM Siddaramaiah faced an embarrassing moment during a campaign rally in Chamundeshwari when a Dalit Gram Panchayat member Mariswamy, said he would not vote for Siddaramaiah.
Last month, Gram Panchayat member Mariswamy embarrassed Siddaramaiah by expressing his displeasure for his anti-Dalit moves while the CM was campaigning in Halekesare village.
