T.N. Javarayi Gowda, a senior JD-S leader, submitted his nomination for the MLC post in the presence of former CM H.D. Kumaraswamy and senior leader G.T. Deve Gowda and others.

Voting for six seats in Karnataka’s Legislative Council concluded on Monday. The stakes are high as the Congress is aiming to win all six seats to secure a majority in the Upper House.
