TUMAKURU: JD(S) MLA C B Suresh Babu of Chikkanayakanahalli assembly constituency started his day by sharing his breakfast with a monkey. It was early in the morning when a monkey decided to pay Babu a visit. Babu’s supporters let it in believing that it could bring good luck for the MLA looking for a hattrick win. Babu gave the monkey a bite of mudde with some curry on it.
But noticing that it was not too pleased with the menu, he offered it upma, which it seemed to enjoy. Babu, son of former MLA late N Basavaiah, is facing a tough fight against BJP’s J C Madhuswami and Congress candidate T J Santhosh, son of Law Minister T B Jayachandra.
