Today is the last day of withdrawal of nominations for the 14 seats in Karnataka that vote on April 18th. And in one seat in particular, this is very significant. In south Karnataka's Tumakuru, former prime minister and Janata Dal (Secular) leader HD Deve Gowda will contest as the candidate of the alliance between his party and ally Congress - the coalition which is in power in the state. Tumakuru was one of the eight seats that the Congress ceded to the JD(S) as part of the seat-sharing agreement for the 28 Lok Sabha seats in the state. Though the Janata Dal Secular later handed over one of those seats -- Bengaluru North -- to the Congress, it held on to Tumakuru.
