BENGALURU: KPCC president DK Shivakumar has written to all district unit presidents to collect applications from aspirants who want to contest the MLC election for Teachers and Graduates constituencies, by May 15, 2021. The election is due in July 2022.

In a letter addressed to district presidents of Mysuru , Belagavi, Chamarajanagar, Vijayapura, Bagalkote, Dharwad, Haveri, Mandya and Hassan, along with MPs and MLAs, Shivakumar said they should prepare a list of aspirants who want to contest the four MLC elections (two Teachers and two Graduates constituencies).
