About Haveri:

It is situated in the Haveri district, which lies in the central regions of the state, being equidistant from Bidal in the north and Kollegal in the south. The Haveri district is a major tourist spot, and one of the urbanized regions in the state.

The economy in this district thrives on a rich tourist sector of this constituency. Haveri town, which has a legislative assembly segment by its name, is the administrative centre of this eponymous district.

Present Political Scenario:

This was one of the pre-conditions of BSY’s return to the party fold and has been met easily as there was no other leader worth his salt to fight from the Lotus brigade. Shivakumar Udasi had won the seat by a big 90k margin last time around and has a strong chance of winning again.

Traditionally, Congress allocates this seat to the minorities, so the party may once again find it difficult to defeat the Udasis here.

The two X factors this time are Sriramulu’s re-entry into the BJP, for he still has a lot of influence here especially among his Valmiki community voters and the role of rural development minister in the state Congress government, H.K. Patil, who has stature and influence in the constituency.
