Modi to spearhead BJP poll campaign in Karnataka from May 1

Indian fishermen

Meanwhile, Tuesday on the very last day of filing nominations for the May 12 assembly elections, state Chief Minister Siddaramaiah filed his nomination from Badami Assembly seat and interestingly BJP candidate B Sriamulu also filed his nomination from the same seat.

Hitting out at the BJP leaders for their taunt that he was contesting from Badami out of fear of defeat in Chamundeshwari, he pointed out that even Prime Minister Narendra Modi had contested the 2014 Lok Sabha polls from two constituencies.

Earlier today he filed his nomination from Badami constituency.

The Karnataka Assembly election will be held on May 12 and the counting of votes will take place on May 15.

But the chief minister has dismissed any such speculation. Given that move by the Chief Minister, one would have expected such voters to be far more likely to vote for the Congress as compared to other Lingayats.

The regional party is now hoping for a repeat of 2004 polls when it had won 58 seats - the highest since its inception. BJP has made peace with awarding tickets to those tainted by graft charges like the Reddys of Bellary, but scored a political point by not obliging dynastic politics like Congress.

The BJP fielded former MLA Raghupathi Bhat from Udupi, following which Lakshmivara Tirtha Swami of the Shiroor Mutt filed his nominationa as an independent from the seat. However, the BJP had held the seat for two consecutive terms from 2004-2013.

The Congress suffered a setback in the Vokkaliga constituency of Mandya, where Kannada film star M H Ambareesh refused to file his nomination.

The BJP has been holding the Congress responsible for the death of its 24 cadres and workers of right-wing RSS in the state's coastal region during its rule over the last five years. "I don't want to name the leaders who have gone to jail during BJP rule in Karnataka".

The BJP also stuck by its decision to disallow Yeddyurappa's son B Y Vijayendra from contesting Varuna seat in Mysuru - against Siddaramaiah's son Dr Yatindra - despite supporters of Vijayendra staging protests. "The election in this state is akin to the battle of Mahabharata, between the Pandavas and the Kauravas".
