Former Chief Minister of Karnataka, Siddaramaiah, has announced his decision to retire from electoral politics after the upcoming state assembly elections. The 75-year-old Congress leader made the announcement at a rally in his hometown of Varuna, where he is contesting the election.

Siddaramaiah had expressed his willingness to contest from two constituencies, Varuna and Kolar, but was only given a ticket from his traditional constituency. The Congress party had fielded Kothur G Manjunath from Kolar instead, as confirmed in their third list of candidates. Siddaramaiah filed his nomination for the Varuna constituency on April 19.

As a potential candidate for the Chief Ministership of Karnataka, Siddaramaiah has been in the news for several reasons. He recently had a heated exchange with External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar over the status of Hakki Pikkis stranded in Sudan.

The Karnataka state assembly elections are scheduled for May 10, with the results to be announced on May 13. Siddaramaiah’s retirement from electoral politics marks the end of a long and illustrious career in public service.
