Karnataka assembly elections 2018: Siddaramaiah sure of win with blessings of Chamundeshwari and Banashankari goddesses
Karnataka assembly elections 2018: Soon after filing his nomination from Badami Assembly constituency in Karnataka’s Bagalkot district, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah talks to DNA about contesting from two seats.
BJP claims you are running from them and hence chose to contest from Badami along with Chamundeshwari in Mysuru.
I am not running anywhere. My party and I are free to contest from anywhere. In fact, it is the other way around. No matter where I go, I find the BJP trying to follow us. I can understand their predicament.
Of Badami and Chamundeshwari, which seat are you more confident of?
I’m confident that we’ll win with a significant majority in both seats. Voters will show the BJP that I have the blessings of both goddesses — Chamundeshwari and Banashankari (local goddesses of the two constituencies).

Badami is facing severe drought for the over a decade and there is a huge shortage of water for both drinking and irrigation.
There are river restoration projects that our government is considering to help bring water to Badami, but these are caught in disputes and controversies with other states. Mahadayi is an example. We could easily get some of that water for this region. If the Prime Minister desires, he can call both the CMs and resolve the issue. The BJP candidate should explain why the PM is not doing that.
