Prominent leaders contesting the elections include party's chief ministerial candidate B S Yeddyurapp, Jagadish Shettar and B. Sriramulu.

With BJP announcing the first batch of 72 candidates, the Congress central election committee is set to begin the process of naming Congress candidates soon. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Rajnath Singh and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj were also reportedly present for the meeting. After the steering committee meeting, Siddaramaiah left for Bengaluru and is likely to visit the national capital again on Friday to finalise the list.

With the Karnataka Assembly Elections 2018 around the corner, it seems local leaders in the state are trying to secure their political career by jumping parties.

For the Karnataka polls, Rahul has laid out that feedback reports candidates from district representatives, observers and state level functionaries will be taken into account and winnability will be the top criteria. This time around the All India Mahila Empowerment Party (MEP) is joing the numerous also runners and asserts that it would contest all the 224 seats. The AICC has not approved the list of candidates yet.

The meeting discussed the names of probable candidates for rest of the seats in the 225-member state Assembly. However, Yeddyurappa merged the entity with the BJP before the 2014 Lok Sabha elections and was elected to the Lok Sabha.
