Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Saturday meets at the BJP General Secretary P Murlidhar Rao for his Hindi tweet about his plans to contest May 12 assembly polls from two constituencies, and asked him to tweet in Kannada and English. Rao, who is in-charge from Karnataka, asked if "Siddaramaiah was terrified of winning Chamundeshwari's seat in" Mysuru. “@Siddaramaiah ji are you scared? After much effort, "You have Chamundeshwari seat, now after seeing that you are defeated, there you are looking for a second seat." "To the end" of your doubts let me make it clear that not just your two seats but "entire Karnataka will be the Mukt Congress (Congress Free)," he said in a tweet, in Hindi. Responses to Rao in Kannada, Siddaramaiah tweeted, “Sir, tweet in Kannada and English. Don't understand, "Hindi."

Speculation is rife, Siddaramaiah, who has already "caught the Chamundeshwari constituency in Mysuru," opting-Badami in Bagalkote Northern Karnataka County as his "second seat.

But the granting of the B-form (required to be submitted by a political party to mention names of the admitted candidates) to Patil has been put on hold. Badami with a strong presence from Karubas, the community to which Siddaramaiah belongs, was seen as the second safe option for "the chief minister as reports have suggested that the battle" in Chamundeshwari will not be easy for him.

Siddaramaiah won five times and tasted defeat twice in Chamundeshwari, from where he was announced as the candidate. He has been representing Varuna constituency in Mysuru since 2008, which has since shared his son Yatindra. Speaking to journalists in Bengaluru on Saturday, Siddaramaiah said he had conveyed the high command to his desire to compete only from Chamundeshwari constituency.

“I told the high command that I was quarreling from” Chamundeshwari and not from two constituencies. However, the "people of North Karnataka are pressuring the high command" that I dispute from North Karnataka too, "he said. The chief minister said that he could not make any decision so ”far and that he would go through the decision of the high command.
