Battle for Karnataka CM

The battle for the candidate to be seated as Karnataka CM has already ensued with the AICC President Mallikarjun Kharge being the one to zero in on the candidate. Both the CM incumbents, D K Shivakumar and Siddaramaiah are slated to reach Delhi to meet the party’s high command and put forward their candidature for the post.

As Per the news and sources, Shivakumar has already gone public saying that he had allowed Siddaramaiah to take over the Chief Minister position earlier in 2013 and has also sacrificed enough for the party’s cause that included a jail term. The Siddaramaiah lobby too has highlighted him as one of the best administrators with a proven track record which should be mandatorily considered as the prime criteria for the position.
