Karnataka is scheduled to go for Assembly election in May this year.
The BJP is likely to announce most of its candidates for the 220 seats by next week. "Members of the community can identify themselves with any party or leader but they cannot extend their support to a party on behalf of the entire community", Mr Puttabudhdhi said.
Stating that such voices of discontent are common in all parties during ticket distribution, Yeddyurappa said he would talk to all those who are dissatisfied. He found mention in the first list of candidates, with the BJP fielding him from Alzalpur constituency. Meanwhile, AICC general secretary in charge of Karnataka, KC Venugopal, said that a list of party candidates for the Assembly polls circulating on social media was fake. He returned to the BJP fold ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha election.
