Mahadevappa not ruling out contesting from Nanjangud
Mahadevappa, also the minister for public works, did not rule out the possibility of contesting from Nanjangud thereby paving the way for his son Sunil Bose to contest from T Narasipur, which is the constituency he represents now. These developments assumed significance in the wake of some of the minister’s supporters approaching chief minister Siddaramaiah, requesting the latter to field Mahadevappa from Nanjangud.
Meanwhile, Mahadevappa’s son is reported to be eyeing the T Narasipura segment, and there are reports of Mahadevappa switching to the CV Raman Nagar segment in Bengaluru.
