Bangalore: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa`s party, The All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK), will be for the first time field candidates in the old Mysore region in the upcoming Karnataka Assembly polls.
The party has ironically been accused of voiding the farmers of the region with water from the Cauvery river.
The AIADMK is fielding candidates in Chamarajanagar district`s Hanur constituency and Narasimharaja constituency of Mysore, apart from three more candidates in the upcoming Karnataka assembly poll.
Hanur has a significant number of Tamil base that the party is looking to tap.
The AIADMK candidate from the seat was however unwilling to differentiate among voters on linguistic basis and told a newspaper that the party has plans to field candidates in all upcoming elections.
AIADMK`s candidate, M Ravi, a Tamilian settled in Hanur, told the newspaper, “Our party chief, Jayalalithaa has assigned me a specific job and I am doing it. I want to carry the message of development to the voters and I need everyone’s support if I am to accomplish this.”
