Former Karnataka Chief Minister and BJP leader Basavaraj Bommai resigned as the MLA from the Shiggaon Assembly constituency on Saturday. His resignation was prompted by his election to the Haveri Lok Sabha constituency in the recent general election.

In his first Lok Sabha election, Bommai won by a margin of 43,513 votes over his closest competitor. The BJP leadership selected Bommai as their candidate for the Lok Sabha seat after the sitting MP, Shivakumar Udasi, decided to retire from active politics.

Bommai received 7,05,538 votes, while the Congress candidate, Anandswamy Gaddadevarmath, son of former MLA GS Gaddadevarmath, secured 6,62,025 votes.

When questioned about the possibility of his son getting the party ticket for the Shiggaon by-election, Bommai deferred the decision to his party, stating, “The party will decide on the ticket issue. We must adhere to the party’s decision. Whomever the party gives the ticket to, I will work sincerely for them.”
