June 28, 2017

Mysuru: With hardly two days left for public campaigning for the MCC Ward 32 by-poll, candidates of the three political parties — Congress, BJP and JD(S) — have stepped up campaigning across the Ward.

Minister for Primary and Secondary Education Tanveer Sait undertook a door-to-door campaign yesterday at Gokulam 2nd Stage, Pourakarmika Colony and surrounding areas, on behalf of Congress candidate B.K. Prakash. The Minister also met leader C.R. Himamshu, who was a strong aspirant for the Congress ticket, at a private hotel in a bid to convince him to take part in the campaign. Himamshu, who is reportedly upset over being denied the ticket, had abstained from campaigning.

The Minister was accompanied by City Congress President R. Murthy, ZAK Chairperson Mallige Veeresh, KEA Chairman Siddaraju, MUDA Chairman D. Dhruvakumar, Corporators M. Ramesh and Pushpalatha Chikkanna, leaders Chikkanna, Bhaskar Gowda, Shivanna, Desigowda, Shivamadu and others.
