Siddaramaiah challenges Yeddyurappa to contest from Varuna instead of fielding son

Addressing reporters Mr Gowda said in an obvious reference to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah

The fact that Odisha is on BJP radar can be gauged from the fact that Shah has visited the state six times since BJP came to power at the Centre in 2014.

When asked if the party has any strategy similar to that executed in the north-eastern states recently, Shah said: "There are different strategies for different states".

Unfazed by reports on BJP's decision to field its state president B S Yeddyurappa's son opposite the son of chief minister Siddaramaiah, the CM on Monday April 2 challenged Yeddyurappa to contest from Varuna himself instead of fielding his son.

"You keep saying "I am an OBC leader and my government is doing a lot for OBC", then why did you fail to convince your party why they stalled the Bill?" Despite Karnataka's history of throwing out incumbent parties, Congress may end up retaining power in the state. Marking the Wednesday public meeting of the BJP chief, the regional party has planned a big joining ceremony at Berhampur in south Odisha where former Union minister and senior Congress leader Chandrasekhar Sahu and several others will join the party. The C-Fore survey, according to News18, also predicted an improved showing by the BJP, which the agency said may end up winning 70 seats in the 224-seat assembly.


In the booklets, the BJP has accused the Congress of ruining Bengaluru and turning the State capital into a "garbage and crime city" and also lists out large scale corruption in city related works. "If Siddaramaiahji was serious about giving minority status to Lingayats, he should have done so at the early stages of his five-year term". Ahead of Karnataka polls, BJP chief is making full efforts to set a stage for saffron party to win the assembly polls.

The Election Commission on Tuesday announced that Assembly polls would be held on May 12 for 224 seats and the votes will be counted on May 15. But the party sources have said that the programme is not cancelled but postponed.

"Basava was a great revolutionary who gave identity to each community in Karnataka's society", he said.
