Campaigning in poll-bound Karnataka ends

Karnataka 20% booths sensitive 525 companies of central forces deployed says EC

Whether it was the temple-hopping of Congress president Rahul Gandhi, his challenge to the Prime Minister for a 15-minute debate in Parliament or the jibes fired by Modi targeting the Congress' first family, the campaign had rancour written all over it. It remains to be seen whether this poll-eve gambit would help the Congress outwit the saffron party and retain power in a State that never returned the incumbent government to power since 1985. "We are going to defeat the BJP here", he said.

Congress spokesman Rajdeep Singh Surjawala hit right back, alleging that the flat owner Manjula Nanjamari and Rakesh had BJP connections and both contested Bengaluru Municipal Corporation elections on the tickets of the saffron party. Reacting to the comment, Modi wondered whether the country would ever accept such an "immature and naamdar (famous)" leader for the post. In a press conference, he recounted the achievements of the Siddramaiah govt and asserted that it his party will retain power in Karnataka.

Four candidates including the incumbent have been chief Ministers of the state.

It also said he was from Kerala, which is already represented, and that that there were no judges from Dalit backgrounds. That can only happen once the Chief Justice convenes a formal meeting of the Collegium and places that on the agenda.

Since the 2014 general election, the Congress has been defeated by the BJP in over a dozen states, drastically shrinking its political footprint. Though the BJP launched its campaign, calling it " mission 150 (seats)", Shah told a press conference yesterday the party will win over 130 constituencies. After the video was released, Mr Shah said, "The video is fake, don't believe it". "They are misusing government machinery". All preparations are complete by the Election Commission.

"I have now learnt to deal with the Prime Minister". He said Lord Ram belong from Uttar Pradesh and his trusted aide Lord Hanuman belong from Karnataka, hence, people should vote for "Ram Rajya" in the state. Reason: Both the BJP and Congress have been unable to shrug off the corruption tag which has been highlighted time and again. That is a 173 percent rise in the farmers' suicide rate.

Karnataka, home to 60 million people and the global information technology hub of Bangalore, is the last major bastion held by Congress under leader Rahul Gandhi. In case of a hung assembly in the state, the JD (S) will be the deciding factor for the fate of BJP and Congress. Counter foils thousands in number of From 6 used for inclusion of names in electoral rolls were also seized.When acting on on a tip-off the flying squad reached the spot, it found a few pamphlets featuring sitting Congress MLA N. Muniratna that led to BJP and JD (S) demanding the poll be countermanded.
