This time, NOTA (None of the above) option will be introduced in the election polls. NOTA option will be introduced for the first time.
These elections will also highlight the bonding between the two parties and their take on the Upcoming Lok Sabha elections 2019.
The first problem that both the parties witness is the selection of desirous and appropriate candidates. As both want to rule and run the state government, the completion among them is going to be rather decisive.
Both are yet to decide their suitable candidates as well as their specific election contesting seats. If they remain clueless till the last moment, Mysuru has to setback to the traditional choices; something which should not be encouraged; claimed the sources.
As per the latest reports, many ministers, party members and strong leaders wish for a non-alliance and separate election. This might be because of the occasional bouts between the two parties or due to extreme democratic principles as practiced by both.
It would be interesting to see the tables turning and to which side they turn. The decision solely lies with the people of Mysuru.
