Since the elections are around the corner we will see some of the facts about Siddaramaiah. Siddaramaiah, the chief minister of Karnataka, has never been transparent about his personal life. Through the television programme,  many people learned about his childhood and political career.

  • Siddaramaiah, popularly known as Siddu, is an Indian politician who was the Chief Minister of Karnataka from May 13, 2013, until May 17, 2018. He was born on August 3, 1947. He is a member of the Congress Working Committee and is an Indian National Congress party member.
  • He was born into a farming family in the rural village of Siddaramanahundi in Varuna Hobli, close to T. Narasipura, in the Mysore district.
  • His parents were Siddarame Gowda and Boramma. He is a member of the Kuruba Gowda community.
  • Siddaramaiah completed B. Sc. and LL.B. from Mysore University.
  • Rarely has anyone seen him with his wife or other family members. When he recently lost his son, Rakesh, his emotional side became apparent. Now that Rakesh has passed away, his son Yatheendra is in the headlines.
  • When Siddaramaiah was chosen to serve on the Mysore Taluka Board in 1978, he entered politics. On a Lok Dal party ticket, he contested for the Karnataka Assembly in 1983 and won from the Chamundeshwari constituency in Mysore.
  • Siddaramaiah stood for Karnataka legislature in 1983 on the Janata Party ticket. All of Siddaramaiah’s attempts to obtain a party ticket fell through because HD Deve Gowda, the then-president of the Janata Party, was opposed to awarding him one. At the time, he was viewed as a “right-wing” political figure. According to reports, a distressed Siddaramaiah resorted to Abdul Nazeer Sab, who is best known for establishing panchayat raj in Karnataka and guaranteeing access to clean water in rural areas.
  • Abdul Nazeer Sab was regarded as Siddaramaiah’s political mentor. Siddaramaiah ran in the 1983 Karnataka Assembly election as an Independent from the Chamundeshwari seat in the Mysuru (then Mysore) district on the recommendation of Abdul Nazeer Sab.
  • Siddaramaiah established himself as a representative of farmers in the Mysore area even before he won the Chamundeshwari seat. He has been a member of the Mysore Taluka Board since 1978 and was referred to as “the farmers’ lawyer”.
  • The Janata Party had divided into the Janata Dal and the Samajwadi Janata Party by the 1989 Karnataka election. Deve Gowda was a member of the Janata Dal, which Siddaramaiah supported. However, Chamundeshwari handed him his first electoral defeat in 1989.
  • In collaboration with Siddaramaiah, RL Jalappa carried out the social engineering experiment to its conclusion. In Karnataka politics, Jalappa invented the AHINDA (Kannada abbreviation for minorities, Dalits, and backward castes) formula.
  • After the Congress took control, Siddaramaiah was sworn in as the Chief Minister of Karnataka in May 2013. He ran for office in 2018 on a Congress ticket, gaining the seat of Badami but falling short of Chamundeshwari.
