However, there is no official announcement for this and the date for his visit is still not finalized. SG Siddaramaiah, who is among the top brasses of the party in the state, has been in Mysore and Bengaluru for a long time managing party’s poll preparations.
Being the Chairman of the Coordination Committee of JD-S and Congress, he was also been busy with the meetings with Chief Minister, Deputy CM and the state cabinet.
