Bengaluru: The Bhartiya Janata Party on Thursday announced fielding Shivaraj Sajjanar from Hanagal and Ramesh Bhusanur from Sindagi Assembly constituencies respectively for the bypolls to the two segments on October 30. Looks like the party is not just gearing up for the by-elections but also for the 2023 Assembly elections. 

BJP said in a statement that the BJP national general secretary and Karnataka in charge Arun Singh communicated that Sajjanar and Bhusanur will be fielded in the bypolls. Fielding Sajjanar has come as a surprise as there were strong rumours that the party would give ticket to former Hanagal MLA late C M Udasi’s daughter-in-law Revathi Udasi.

It was Udasi’s demise in June this year, which had necessitated the bypoll to Hanagal constituency.

Sajjanar is a former BJP MLA from Haveri and a long time close aide of former Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa, BJP sources said. On the other hand, Ramesh Bhusanur’s candidature was in the offing and it was quite certain that he would get the ticket.
