The list of candidates was released here by senior party leader Mukul Wasnik.
Wasnik in a release said, “Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi has approved the proposal for the candidature of six candidates for the ensuing bypolls in Karnataka on December 5.”
The party has named Gajanan Balchandra Mangasuli from Athani, B.A. Kage from Kagwad, Lakhan Jharkholi from Gokak, Venkatrao Ghorpade from Vijayanagara, Rizwan Arshad from Shivajinagar and K.B. Chandrasekhar from Krishnarajpet Assembly constituencies.
Miffed over ticket being given to the Congress defector Srimanthagouda Patil from Kagwad, Kage jumped ship to the Congress on Thursday.
Kage had lost to Patil in the May 2018 Assembly elections on a BJP ticket.
