It's a fight between RSS and spirit of Karnataka: Rahul Gandhi

It's a fight between RSS and spirit of Karnataka: Rahul Gandhi

The Congress party, which has dominated Indian politics in the seven decades since independence, will stage a last stand against Prime Minister Narendra Modi when a key southern state goes to the polls today.

Field verification conducted by officials at some houses revealed that the voter ID cards were seized last month in exchange for water cans and promised cookers.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, one of BJP's star campaigners, called out the Siddaramaiah Government for celebrating "Tipu Jayanti" while objecting to the installation of a statue of Chattrapati Sivaji Maharaj in the state.

However, the BJP denied such allegations and termed the video as "fake". He was the chief minister of the state from 2008 to 2011.

Sriramulu is believed to be a close confidant of scam-tainted mining baron and owner of Obulapuram Mining Company (OMC) Janardhana Reddy. MMB Rahul ducks questions on his PM ambition Two days after creating a buzz with his "why not" reply to the question whether he would stake claim for the PM's post in 2019, Congress president Rahul Gandhi chose to steer clear of the tricky topic on Thursday during a media interaction in Bengaluru. "When he can't respond, he distracts", Mr Gandhi told reporters in Bengaluru after winding up his extensive tour of the poll-bound state. "I am 100% confident because I am the chief minister". Polling will be held for 223 constituencies on Saturday after the election to Jayanagar seat in Bengaluru was postponed.

Counting of votes will take place on May 15 and results will be declared the same day.

BJP, Congress and JD (S) make claims of victory; 4 crore 96 lakh voters to decide the fate of 2654 candidates in the fray. A news channel executive told PTI that the election commission said in the notices to all the news channels and publication houses that they can not air any such content within 24 hours of election. "Everything looks genuine. So, now forensic experts need to examine them".

He even said that the Modi Government had initiated 116 schemes for the minorities in the state, but the Siddaramaiah Government did not let them reach the people of Karnataka.

The Congress president frequently referred to fugitive diamantaire Nirav Modi in his speeches, alleging that the government allowed him to flee the country after defrauding the Punjab National Bank. "Congress has no place for Dalits and backwards", he said.

Former Prime Minister and JD (S) Supremo Deve Gowda, in coalition with BSP in the state, is also a faction that can't be ignored.
