Mysuru, June 21:- The reservation matrix for all the wards of Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) has been announced ahead of the corporation elections. Several strong contenders have lost their wards due to the reservation.
Former Mayors too have lost the wards they were representing. As there are only seven days left for them to submit their objection, they are planning to pressure the government to reconsider its decision. They have filed their objection to the Election Commission. They have requested Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy to change the reservation matrix, saying it was done by the previous government and they alleged the then CM Siddaramaiah did it because of vested interests.
Former Mayor L Bhyrappa, R Lingappa, Rajeshwari Somu and several others are in fear of losing their wards. (MR/KS)
