JD (S) breathes easy in Holalkere

By Our Staff Correspondent

CHITRADURGA, APRIL 14. G.B. Shekar, rebel Janata Dal (Secular) candidate in the Holalkere Assembly Constituency, has retired from contest.

The Janata Dal (S) had given the "B" form first to Mr. Shekar and then to the former District Congress Committee President, G.S. Manjunath. The returning officer rejected the form submitted by Mr. Manjunath. The "B" form is essential to show that a candidate is representing a political party.

With Mr. Shekar not withdrawing from the fray even after directions from the Janata Dal (S) leadership, the party workers were confused. However, the party declared that Mr. Manjunath was its official candidate, although its official symbol went to Mr. Shekar.

At a press conference here on Tuesday, Mr. Shekar declared that he was retiring from contest, bowing to the direction of the party.

P. Kodandaramaiah, Lok Sabha candidate of the party; D. Yashodhar, President of the party's district unit; and G. Venkatashiva Reddy, General Secretary of the party, were present.
