The Indian National Congress has released its fourth list of candidates for the upcoming Karnataka Assembly elections, with the major highlight being the inclusion of former BJP Chief Minister of Karnataka, Jagadish Shettar. Shettar will be contesting from his home constituency of Hubli-Dharwad Central after being denied a ticket by the BJP.

Shettar, who is 67 years old, joined the Congress party just a day after resigning from his membership of the BJP. His inclusion in the Congress party is expected to give a boost to the party’s campaign in the state.

In addition to Shettar, the Congress party also named its candidate for the Chikmagalur assembly, where Congress’ HD Thammaaiah will face off against BJP General Secretary CT Ravi. The Congress party has also fielded Mohammed Yousuf Savanur from the Shiggaon assembly, where he will be competing against the current Chief Minister of Karnataka, Basavraj Bommai.

While the Congress party has covered all major constituencies with their list of candidates, they are yet to name the candidates for eight seats. The Karnataka Assembly elections are set to take place on May 10, with the results being announced on May 13.
