These Are BJP's "Star Campaigners" For Karnataka Election

Party not allowed to campaign freely in Karnataka BJP

The state poll has literally turned out to be a battle between present and former Chief Ministers, Siddaramaiah and B.S. Yeddyurappa.

Incumbent Chief Minister Siddaramaiah will file his nomination from the Badami constituency constituency in the assembly elections.

Siddaramaiah has also filed nomination on April 20 from Chamundeshwari in Mysuru and Sreeramulu from Molakramuru (reserved/ST) from Chitradurga district.

Addressing the media after filing his nomination in Badami, Sriramulu said he was bowing to the party high command's decision. Read Also: BJP Karnataka president BS Yeddyurappa Jr pulls out; Mysuru goes berserkThe list didn't divulge any details on the seat of Varuna on Monday.

In greater Bengaluru, the Congress and BJP can gain something meaty votes as compared to the 2013 numbers, predicted by an online poll. While a large number of voters in Badami are Valmikis, a Scheduled Tribe, the Congress is banking on support from the Kuruba community, who too make up a sizeable percentage of voters.

"Prime Minister will interact with all candidates, office bearers, elected representatives and karyakartas of Karnataka through "Narendra Modi App" at 9 a.m. on April 26, 2018", a tweet from the BJP's official Twitter handle said.

The party has supported congress in 2004 and ran coalition government.

Terming the iron ore mining scam as the state biggest, Surjewala said the then anti-graft watchdog Justice Santosh Hegde exposed the unholy nexus of BJP's chief ministerial face B.S, Yeddyurappa with the Reddy brothers.

The Congress also witnessed high drama within its ranks as M.H. Ambareesh, a popular Kannada actor and the party's incumbent legislator from Mandya, chose to opt out of the race, prompting the party to give the ticket to Ganiga Ravi Kumar.

The chief minister was accompanied by Congress working president SR Patil and sitting MLA Chimmanakatti, among others, as he filed his papers.

The list of campaigners also includes Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj, Minister for Defense Nirmala Seetharaman, and Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani.

"In the general election they are unlikely to repeat the same result as the last time in states such as Rajasthan and Gujarat".
