The BJP second list of 82 names for the upcoming Karnataka elections released this evening contained a surprise candidate -- Gali Somashekhara Reddy fielded from Bellary City -- which drew immediate jeers from the Congress. Fifty-two-year-old G Somashekhara Reddy is the youngest of Reddy brothers, mining barons for whom the iron ore-rich district of Bellary was home turf. State BJP spokesperson Vivek Reddy told NDTV that the party has "made a compromise" by fielding him since it wanted to win the Bellary city.
