Congress, JD(S) leaders yet to bury hatchet in Mysuru segment
| Tuesday | 26th March, 2019
Initially, it was believed that JD(S) would demand the Mysuru seat as it has three assembly seats, two more than Congress.
GT Devegowda was away from Mysuru.A joint press conference by Congress and JD(S) leaders planned ahead of nomination, was cancelled all of a sudden.
Sources claimed that unless Siddaramaiah invites JD(S) leaders to support Vijayshankar, they have decided not to take part.
Both JD(S) leaders didn’t attend, but SR Mahesh joined CH Vijayshankar at deputy commissioner’s office while filing nominations.
On the other hand, Vijayshankar, who had met SR Mahesh and awaiting appointment of GT Devegowda, is confident that he would sail through.
