K’taka polls: Congress in a fix over candidates’ selection Bangalore: Opposition Congress is facing difficulty in finalising 47 candidates for the Karnataka Assembly elections in the backdrop of intense lobbying by senior party leaders in the high-stake polls.

The principal opposition in Karnataka, which sees prospects of dislodging the BJP government by putting up a united front, announced a list of 177 candidates last Friday.

In addition to tug-of-war over other seats, the issue of allotting tickets to sons of Labour Minister M Mallikarjuna Kharge, former CM N Dharam Singh and daughter of MSME Minister K H Muniyappa has added to the party's woes. The decision has now been left to party president Sonia Gandhi.

Nevertheless, there have been rumblings after the first list, with those who lost out crying foul.
