In Shivamogga, the party has given ticket to Channabasappa, while denying it to sitting MLA and senior BJP leader K S Eshwarappa’s family.

Eshwarappa, a former Deputy Chief Minister, had recently conveyed to the party’s central leadership his wish to retire from electoral politics, and had requested it to not consider fielding him in the Assembly polls from Shivamogga.

The five time MLA from the seat, however is said to have sought the ticket for his son K E Kantesh, from the assembly segment.
