Is Modi or Amit Shah going to be BJP Karnataka CM candidate?

BSriramulu the BJP candidate from Molakalmuru

The high-decibel poll campaign in Karnataka came to a finale at 5 pm on Thursday, giving voters a day of respite to think before they exercise their right to choose the government on May 12.

While attaching a National Herald news report, Rahul Gandhi in a tweet said, "This is how Modi and Yeddy (BS Yeddyurappa) are getting "Reddy" to loot Karnataka".

It is to be noted that the BJP had ruled the state between 2008 and 2013 but its tenure was marred by intra-party feuds and allegations of corruption.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi took a day off from campaigning and had him heard through an open press conference in Bengaluru and attacked the Modi government over a range of issues, including Dalit atrocities, rising crime against women, agrarian distress, and corporate-banking fraud.

Modi talks about "Congress-mukt Bharat".

Seeking directions to the state electoral authorities to lift any injunction on the Kannada television channels or other media from showing and playing the tapes, the Congress delegation also urged the poll panel to take actions necessary in law for holding a free and fair election in Karnataka. He slammed the Congress for raising questions about the Army's surgical strikes in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.


"For JDS and BJP, the common enemy is Congress".

Sonia Gandhi, who avoided the rough and tumble of elections for two years after she was taken ill during a roadshow in Varanasi ahead of the Uttar Pradesh polls, also addressed a rally in the Lingayat stronghold of Vijayapura where she said, "Modi is possessed by the devil of "Congress-mukt Bharat" (bhoot lag gaya hai)". There are designated agents who herd the voters together and transport them to polling booths, in clear violation of EC norms.

The counting for the seat will be held on 31 May.

Rajarajeswari Nagar Assembly is the Karnataka constituency where a huge cache of voter ID card was seized in an apartment. The decision comes after the confiscation of more than 10,000 Electoral Photo ID Cards from the aforesaid constituency on 8 May.

The majority mark for any party to form the government is 112 in the 225-member assembly. The election for one constituency has been postponed following the death of B N Vijay Kumar, the Jayanagar BJP candidate.

The southern state goes to polls on Saturday and the results will be declared on May 15.
