Bengaluru: After a major setback of JD (S) in both Sindagi and Hanagal Assembly seats, the party has decided to restrict itself to its stronghold of Old Mysuru for the December 10 Legislative Council polls to 25 seats from local bodies.
According to the sources, the party has decided to contest only 6 to 7 seats, including Hassan, Tumakuru, Mysuru, Kolar and Mandya, due to the lack of strong candidates.
Another member of party, Supremo H. D. Deve Gowda’s family, H. D. Revanna’s son Dr. Suraj is expected to join politics in Hassan.
With this, one more member of Gowda’s family will join active politics. Suraj’s mother Bhavani is a former Zilla Panchayat member in Hassan.
