Karnataka election 2018: BS Yeddyurappa, BJP, Shikaripura

Narendra Modi labelled the Congress a ‘deal party

Since the 2014 general election, the Congress has been defeated by the BJP in over a dozen states, drastically shrinking its political footprint. He predicted that the Congress chief ministerial face will lose elections from both Chamundeshwari and Badami.

Sriramulu is believed to be a close confidant of scam-tainted mining baron and owner of Obulapuram Mining Company (OMC) Janardhana Reddy.

A BJP delegation, which included union ministers J P Nadda, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, Smriti Irani, S S Ahluwalia, Dharmendra Pradhan and the party spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi, told the Commission that scrapping the poll in the constituency was necessary to "reinstate people's faith" in the electoral process.

Addressing a press conference at the conclusion of the Karnataka Assembly election campaign here, Singh said, Rahul Gandhi and other members of the dynasty are brought up with the belief that the office of the Prime Minister of India is a part of their family legacy.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi ended the last day of campaign by responding to the Prime Minister's sarcastic barb at UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi over her foreign origin, claiming, "My mother is more Indian than many Indians".

BJP, Congress and JD (S) make claims of victory; 4 crore 96 lakh voters to decide the fate of 2654 candidates in the fray.

The election for one constituency has been postponed following the death of B.N. Vijay Kumar, Jayanagar BJP candidate.

The results of the election will be announced on 15 May. The party has a limited presence in the four other southern states, where it is unlikely to contest an election without a regional ally. The voter turnout in the previous Assembly election held in the state in 2013 was 71.45 per cent.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan also made several visits to the state. "Everything looks genuine. So, now forensic experts need to examine them". "Why the BJP has given eight tickets to Reddy brothers and their associates who looted '35,000 crore from the people of Karnataka?" he asked. 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.

If Modi secures a victory today, his party will nearly certainly see continued success as Karnataka is one of the only major states held by Congress. In Paduvalahippe, former prime minister HD Deve Gowda was unable to cast his vote this morning due to the delay.
