Battle For Karnataka: BJP, Congress biggies to campaign across the state

The campaigning for the Karnataka assembly election has reached the penultimate phase. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Rahul Gandhi and Yogi Adityanath will address rallies on Wednesday. All political parties are expected to increase the pitch of their war cries on the second last day of campaigning.

While the PM will address four rallies in Karnataka’s Bangarpet, Chikkaamagaluru, Belagavi and Bidar districts. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will hold meetings in Hubali, at Rattihalli Ground and Sahakarnagar in the city.

Meanwhile, Congress President Rahul Gandhi will begin his day by visiting Dodda Ganapathi Temple in Basavanagudi in the morning and then hold public meetings at Krishna Nagar Industrial Area, Shivaji Nagar, Thippasandra Main Road and Hebbal.

The discovery of more than 9,000 voter cards has led to a slinging match between rivals – BJP and Congress. The BJP has demanded countermanding of elections in Raj Rajeshwari Nagar constituency following the recovery of over 9,000 voters identity cards from a house.
Late Tuesday night the Chief Electoral Officer Sanjiv Kumar said that 9,746 voter identity cards were found in bundles in an apartment in Bengaluru. These EPICS found to be genuine, belonged to people from the slums.

The Congress has however said that the apartment belongs to a BJP leader and this whole drama is enacted by it for countermanding the election in this constituency. The BJP has denied the claim.

Chief Electoral Officer further said that five laptops and a printer were also found in the place. An FIR has been filed and an independent inquiry has been ordered.
A BJP delegation, led by Union Minister Sadanand Gowda, is meeting the CEO today on this issue.
