The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has released its second list of candidates for the upcoming Karnataka Assembly elections, dropping the names of seven sitting MLAs from the first list that was released earlier on April 12, 2023. The move has brought clarity to the election scenario in the state.

One of the sitting MLAs whose name was dropped from the second list is Nadal Virupakshappa of Channagiri, who had been in the news in March for accepting a bribe of Rs. 40 lakh. MLAs from Davanagere North, Mudigere, Haveri, Mayakonda, Byndur, and Kalghatki constituencies have also been dropped from the list and have been replaced with new candidates.
