Mysuru Mayoral polls: All eyes on MLA G T Devegowda

Mysuru, January 28:- Janata Dal (Secular) MLA and former minister G T Devegowda supporters in Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) council are in a dilemma. With the mayoral elections set to be held sooner or later, the councillors are wondering which way their leader may wean.

If Devegowda decides, the Bharatiya Janata Party has a bright chance of winning the all-important post in the MCC. JD(S) MLA Sa Ra Mahesh has been Devegowda’s critic for a long time now. The Chamundeshwari MLA may think in terms of supporting BJP to derail Mahesh’s plans. But right now, Devegowda is maintaining a stoic silence.

It is strongly believed that Devegowda has the support of 7-8 councillors in the MCC. If the BJP can take the support of four independent councillors, it can stake a claim. To avid anti-defection law, the BJP has to take the help of 11 councillors and the BJP leaders are going all out in this regard. (MR/KS)
