    The Congress in Karnataka finds itself in a dilemma as several aspirants for tickets are sons of leaders. This would be a hot topic of debate when Rahul Gandhi arrives in the state for a three day visit.

    Chief Minister, Siddaramaiah's son, Dr Yathindra are among the many who are aspirants for tickets. Rahul Gandhi would be in a spot of bother while deciding on this issue as he would also have to ensure that the senior leaders in the party remain loyal.

    The issue of handing out tickets to the sons of leaders would be entirely decided by the high command. All state leaders have been told to stay away from this issue as the central leadership would take the final call on the matter.

    It may be recalled that this had become a major issue in 2013. The Congress in fact had to delay the announcement of candidates in at least 4 to 5 constituencies owing to pressure from senior leaders to grant tickets to their children.

    Apart from Yathindra there are many others who are eyeing for tickets in Karnataka. PWD minister, H C Mahadevappa's son, Sunil Bose, Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy's daughter, Soumya Reddy, Urban Development Minister Roshan Baig's son, Ruman Baig, Social Welfare Minister K Thimappa's daughter, Dr Nandini, Veerappa Moily's son, Harsha, former Union minister K H Muniyappa's daughter Roopakala Sridhar, former central minister Rahman Khan's son Mansoor Ali Khan, Margaret Alva's son Niret Alva, KPCC vice-president C Motamma's daughter Nayana Jwahar and Assembly Speaker K B Koliwad's son Prakash Koliwad.
