Bengaluru: After announcing 13 of the 16 disqualified MLAs, who recently joined their cadre, as candidates for the Assembly by-polls on December 5, the BJP announced that M Sharavana as its candidate for the Shivajinagar Assembly constituency.
Sharavana's name appeared in the second list released by the BJP on Thursday, November 14.
Formerly a member of the Congress party, Sharavana joined the BJP today, soon after which he was given a ticket to contest in the by-polls.
Disqualified MLA Roshan Baig, who did not join the BJP today along with the others reportedly due to the IMA Ponzi scam and allegations against him in RSS worker Rudresh's murder case, is likely to contest in the by-election from Shivajinagar as an independent candidate.
