Karnataka polls: It's 'future' CM vs Yeddyurappa's 'Man Friday' in Varuna constituency

- Dalit teen canât pay to cheat in exam, immolates himself

It can't get more contrasting than this in Varuna Assembly segment of the district.
Siddaramaiah, a veteran politician and a strong chief ministerial candidate, pitted against a fresher who served as a private assistant to former Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa for long.
Heavyweight Yeddyurappa has vowed to defeat Siddaramaiah through Ka Pu Siddalingaswamy who served him well in the ups and downs of his tumultous political career.
"Let him first win in Varuna", Yeddyurappa, who quit the BJP late last year and floated his own regional outfit Karnataka Janatha Paksha, has challenged Siddaramaiah more than once in recent days, giving the electoral contest the tag of being prestigious.
Siddalingaswamy knew for a long time that he would be Yeddyurappa's choice and was nursing the constituency well for many months and no doubt had the momentum going for him initially.
But Siddaramaiah, a seasoned politician, it seems is peaking at the right time, conducting whirlwind tours of the constituency towards the fag end of the campaigning.
"I will win. That's 100 per cent sure", he said.
