Five assembly segments identified ‘expenditure-sensitive’ in Mysuru
The Election Commission has appointed one expenditure observer each for all the five constituencies – Krishnaraja, Varuna, T Narasipura and Chamundeshwari. Incidentally, Siddaramaiah’s son Yathindra Siddaramaiah is contesting the election from Varuna.
Deputy commissioner KB Sivakumar, also election officer for Mysuru, on Monday said that, “Five segments in the district had been identified as expenditure-sensitive, and we will keep a close watch on them.”
Sources claimed that the appointment of an observer to each constituency was indicative of the complexities involved.
Swarup Kumar Paul has been appointed as general observer and Dhrubajyothi Roy as Expenditure observer to Chamundeshwari.
