Rajya Sabha polls: Karnataka Congress fields Mansoor Khan

  • Karnataka Congress on Monday announced Mansoor Khan as its second candidate for the Rajya Sabha polls.
  • Congress claimed that the party decided to field Mansoor Khan to ‘prevent’ the BJP-JDS alliance.  However, the recent reports say otherwise.
  • It is said that DK Shivakumar hoped for an alliance between JDS and Congress but Siddaramaiah opposed the move and decided to announce the candidature of Rehman Khan’s son Mansoor Khan.
  • Sources claim, he also discussed the issue with KPCC secretary K C Venugopal. This has led to a rift between the two leaders.
