Congress Desperate To Win Karnataka Polls, Says Shah

Fake voter identities recovered from RR Nagar constituency in Karnataka

Shah has alleged the Congress-led Karnataka government to do nothing for the farmers in the state.

During the days that the Prime Minister wasn't in the southern state, he made use of technology to connect with the party's cadres through his personal mobile app.

He claimed that while the Congress presented a vision for Karnataka, the BJP leaders restricted themselves to personal attacks against him, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and the party's leader in the Lok Sabha, Mallikarjun Kharge.

Prime Minister said that BJP has always believed in equality and is committed to work for the development for all sections of the society. Let Congress show at least one thing it did to honour Baba Saheb...

He was referring to the seizure of "bogus" voter ID cards from a flat here.

With the Karnataka assembly polls scheduled for Saturday, hectic campaigning by political parties concluded on Thursday.

Polling will be held in 223 constituencies of the 224 -member Assembly as election has been countermanded in Jayanagara following the death of BJP candidate and sitting MLA B N Vijaykumar.

It said the videos that have surfaced today show how Sriramulu, middlemen and son in-law of the former CJI discussed bribe deals, hoping to get a favourable judgement from the Supreme Court in the Obalipuram case.

There's talk in BJP circles that Sriramulu may be appointed deputy chief minister if the party wins.

"I am happy that as many of their ministers that would like to come have come".

Equally, with a more "ground connect", the Congress tried to woo voters with party president Rahul Gandhi travelling and holding "corner meetings" and rallies in all the 30 districts of the state.

The Gandhi scion flayed the prime minister for his "silence" on incidents of killing of dalits and attacks on them. Results will be declared on May 15. Men account for over 2.52 crore voters, women around 2.44 crore, while there are 4,552 transgender electors. With all the splinter factions back with the BJP, a 2 per cent swing from what they together polled in 2013 (33 per cent) would then suffice for the BJP to get to a simple majority of 112 seats.

The outcome of elections in Karnataka, whose capital city Bengaluru is considered India's answer to the Silicon City in the USA, is expected to set the tone and build momentum for the 2019 general election.

Cornering the ruling Congress over law and order situation in the state, "The Law & order situation has seen a downfall in Karnataka".

Seven relatives and associates of mining baron G. Janardhan Reddy, including Sriramulu, are in the fray this time on BJP tickets, with the opposition criticising the decision to field BSY as CM candidate. Shah said there was anger in the public against the Congress' state government, on the other hand, there was increasing "affection and liking" for Modi.

Rahul said the elections were not about him but described himself as "the lightning rod" that absorbs Modi's anger.
