The much-expected proxy battle between Congress chief minister Siddaramaiah and BJP’s chief ministerial candidate BS Yeddyurappa from Varuna has been called off. The seat, represented by Mr Siddaramaiah, has gone to son, Dr Yatheendra, who is making his debut in politics. It was expected that he would contest
against Mr Yeddyurappa’s son. Today
, as the fourth list of the BJP was released without any mention of Varuna, Mr Yeddyurappa confirmed to NDTV that his son will not be contesting from the seat.
“I am not unhappy. We decided that my son won’t contest from Varuna,” Mr Yeddyurappa told NDTV, adding that the decision was taken with the permission of the party’s central leadership.
“Vijayendra worked hard on this seat. He will now campaign in many seats in this area,” he added.
“The BJP has many father son combinations,” he said. The party will win from the seat even though another candidate will be fielded.
