Mysuru: District In-Charge Minister S. T. Somashekar congratulated the new Mayor Shivakumar and Deputy Mayor Roopa Yogish on the occasion of their win. JD (S) candidate Reshma Banu’s nomination was rejected on technical grounds paving the way for BJP candidate from Ward number 53, Roopa Yogish to lay hands on the Deputy Mayor’s post.

While the Congress and JD (S) were left to curse their fate, BJP was grinning ear-to-ear with the unexpected turn of events. Rehma Banu was supposed to submit BCA form while submitting her nomination papers for Deputy Mayor’s post. She failed to submit her BCA form resulting in her disqualification.

Congress’ Gopi and JD (S) K. V. Sridhar withdrew from the competition for Mayor’s post. JD (S) it seems, agreed to support BJP at the last minute. The Mayor’s election saw Congress candidate Syed Hazrath Ulla and BJP’s Shivakumar in a tight fight but the latter won on better numbers (48).

BJP MLAs L. Nagendra, S. A. Ramadas, Mysuru – Kodagu MP Prathap Simha, MLC A. H. Vishwanath and outgoing Mayor Sunanda Palanetra took part in the election process. According to sources JD (S) rebel MLA G. T. Devegowda and MLC Marithibbegowda voted in favour of the BJP candidate.

MLCs Madhu G. Madegowda, Dr. D. Thimmaiah, Dinesh Gooligowda, Congress MLA Tanveer Sait and Deputy Mayor Anwar Baig supported the Congress candidate.
