Srikantaiah for Hassan Lok Sabha seat

By Our Special Correspondent

BANGALORE, MARCH 30. A Kannada television journalist, Tejaswini Ramesh, and the Revenue Minister, H.C. Srikantaiah, figure in the second list of Congress candidates for the Lok Sabha elections from the State released by the All-India Congress Committee (AICC) in New Delhi today. With this the party has named candidates for 27 of the 28 Lok Sabha seats in the State. The only constituency remaining is Bangalore South.

The Congress has dropped Kolur Basavanagouda, member of the dissolved Lok Sabha, and named K.C. Kondaiah, MLC, as its candidate for the Bellary Lok Sabha seat, putting an end to speculation about Priyanka Vadra, daughter of the Congress President, Sonia Gandhi, contesting from there.

Ms. Ramesh, who is known for interviewing politicians on Udaya TV, is a favourite in Congress circles. She has been chosen to contest from Kanakapura.

Mr. Srikantaiah will be contesting from Hassan constituency. The Congress has named the former MP, Narasingharao Suryavamshi, from Bidar to take on the BJP veteran, Ramachandra Veerappa.

B.S. Patil Managuli is the candidate for the Bijapur Lok Sabha seat.
