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. Initially, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah tried to drive a wedge between the locals and the North Indians, but that did not cut much ice. Demonetisation and GST laid to rest the myth of the efficient administrator and the Karnataka elections have taken away the halo of anti-corruption.
During the decade-long reign of Congress-led United Progressive Alliance from 2004, he had a few times spurned offers to join the cabinet, if we are to believe former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. But Siddaramaiah is banking on his "Bhagya" welfare schemes to see him through. "Modi did not say a word when Rohit Vemula was killed and Dalits are attacked in Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh". Win or lose, the BJP has made a colossal blunder in Karnataka.
"Now several videos have been released which show how bribe deals were done btw CJI's son-in-law and Sriramulu/Reddy brothers", Karnataka Congress tweeted Rao's statement at a press conference.

Almost five crore voters will have the final say on whether the Congress will retain power in the state, the BJP will make inroads in the south or the JD (S) will continue to stay relevant in Karnataka as well as national polity. The Janata Dal (Secular) which had been a kingmaker in the past is in the fray in 200 constituencies with its alliance partner Bahujan Samaj Party contesting for 18 seats. Again, to understand the gravity of this, imagine if the roles had been reversed and the Congress had given tickets to these people and defended the choices the same way the BJP has.
Speaking about the Karnataka polls, Athawale said that he is confident of BJP getting full majority. There is nothing wrong with having an ambition to become Prime Minister. "Rakesh is my mother's nephew's son and he has got no connections with the flat in Park View apartment, as is claimed in media", Sridhar said and added that the flat has been rented to Rangaraju who pays rent for it every month.
The Congress' main challenger BJP has spared no effort to ensure that history is repeated.
