In the high-stakes contests for the Karnataka Assembly Elections, family members of prominent leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress have been named as backups in case of last-minute disqualifications due to technical or legal issues.

Congress leader and state chief DK Shivakumar has named his brother, DK Suresh, as a backup candidate to cover any disqualification that may arise. Suresh, who represents the Bengaluru Rural Lok Sabha constituency and is also the only Congress Member of Parliament from Karnataka, had earlier shown a lack of interest in entering state politics.

The decision to name a backup candidate is seen as a precautionary measure due to ongoing investigations by the Enforcement Directorate and the Income Tax Department. If Shivakumar’s nomination is struck down by the Election Commission of India, Suresh will step in as the Congress candidate for the Kanakapura constituency.
