To file papers from Chamundeshwari on April 20
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Monday denied that he had planned to contest from Badami Assembly constituency in north Karnataka in addition to Chamundeshwari.
Arriving in Mysuru to resume his campaign in Chamundeshwari constituency, he said he had faced several Assembly elections in his political career, but had never entered the poll fray from two constituencies.
While dismissing reports on his possible entry into the poll fray from Badami as a creation of the media, he admitted that a large number of people from Badami had come to meet him and had brought pressure on him to contest from there.
Mr. Siddaramaiah said he will be filing his nomination papers from Chamundeshwari on April 20.
Later, he visited Lingambudhi Palya on the outskirts of Mysuru and addressed a gathering of Bovi community.
