Mysore, May 2 (UNI) Former Karnataka Chief Minister and Janata Dal (Secular) leader H D Kumaraswamy today launched a campaign for May 10 Assembly election from a village in Chamundeshwari constitutency.

Addressing public meetings at several villages in the constituency, he said due to the Congress-led UPA government's apathy, the issuance of Ration card to people belonging to Below Poverty Line was affected.
