    Siddaramaiah said that party leaders had invited him to contest from Badami or any other constituency in North Karnataka. "However I am yet to decide on this", he also said.

    While expressing confidence of a win from Chamundeshwari, he also accused the BJP and JD(S) of joining hands to try and defeat him. He said that they have tried this in the past as well, but failed.

    He further refuted allegations that he was using the state machinery to win the elections. "I have not done it in the past and will not do it now", he also said.

    On his meeting with the actor, Sudeep, Siddaramaiah said that he had come to invite him to inaugurate a cricket tournament. "I have not invited him for the campaign", Siddaramaiah also said.
