Kumaraswamy, the son of former Prime Minister HD Devegowda, surprisingly does not own a car but has a tractor and called himself an agriculturalist, politician and social worker. He also has three pending police cases against him. His other assets are a house in Bengaluru worth 6.46 crore, agricultural lands worth 37.48 crore, gold worth 47.06 lakh and diamonds worth of 2.60 lakh.

Anita Kumaraswamy owns a car worth Rs. 11 lakh which is in the name of her company Nikhil & Co. She is also a director of Kasturi Media Pvt Ltd and Nikhil & Co.

After a long suspense, HD Kumaraswamy declared last week that he will be contesting from Mandya in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls. The BJP, which is in alliance with the JD(S), has allotted this seat to the latter and Kumaraswamy himself decided to contest from this Vokkaliga bastion. Congress has already fielded Star Chandru, a close aide of DK Shivakumar from Mandya.

Sumalatha Ambareesh, the sitting MP of Mandya who won as an independent candidate in the 2019 elections against Nikhil Kumaraswamy, will be joining the BJP soon, and she decided to stay away from the contest.
