The Mysore region comprises Mysore, Mandya, Haasan, Chamarajanagara, Ramanagara, Bengaluru rural, Kolar, Chikkaballapura and Tumkur district. Except Ramanagara, each district is an MP constituency. The BJP is contesting in all seats except Mandya, where it has extended support to Sumalatha. The Congress is contesting five, while the JDS is contesting three.
Pratapa Simha of the BJP could win from Mysore. In Chikkaballapura, former CM and Congress leader Veerappa MOily might lose. In Haasan, Congress faction led by former CM Siddaramaiah is all set to back BJP leader A Manju. He is an ex-Congressman who has cordial relations with Siddaramaiyya. In Kolar, former union minister Muniyappa might bite dust. IN Chamarajanagara too, Siddu's follower Srinivasa Prasad is contesting on BJP ticket. So, Siddu might back him. In Mandya, Sumalatha seems to be winning the seat. Bengaluru rural, Tumkur are the only two seats where the Congress and JDS could do well.
