Bengaluru: JD(S) on Tuesday announced the name of Ammajamma, wife of late MLA Satyanarayana as its candidate for Sira assembly.
The upcoming bypolls are scheduled to be held on November 3 for Shira and RR Nagara assembly.
JD(S) supremo HD Devegowda made the official announcement at the party office in Bengaluru.
The bypolls to this constituency were necessitated following the demise of Satyanarayana.
The Congress has already announced TB Jayachandra as its candidate from Sira constituency while the BJP is yet to finalise its candidate.
However, it is speculated that Rajesh Gowda who was inducted into the saffron party recently may get the party ticket.
In the 2018 assembly elections JD(S)’s Satyanarayana registered victory over Congress’ candidate TB Jayachandra to enter the assembly for the first time.
