Its JD(S) vs JD(S), BJP vs BJP and Congress VS Congress in Chikpet

It is going to be a tough contest at Chikpet assembly as all the three candidates from BJP, Congress and JD(S) are equally powerful. At the same time, they also face a challenge as leaders from within their own party are trying to cause embarrassment due to personal grudges. Congress MLA Devraj could have found resistance from NR Ramesh, the BJP leader who has worked in the constituency from last three years and earned a lot of respect from voters but who was denied a ticket. The BJP also failed to take Hemchandra Sagar into consideration who is a close confidante of BS Yeddyurappa. He was denied ticket and he defected to JD(S). This may be a cause of worry for BJP's Uday Garudachar. Hemchandra Sagar being a Vokkaliga is considered a gentleman and he may again give a tough fight as he was MLA from 2008 to 2013 here. But the JD(S) rebels are unhappy with him and are said to be working to defeat him. For sitting MLA RV Devraj, it is said Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy was upset with him for trivial reasons and may be secretly working to defeat him.
