Ahead of state elections, BJP keen to set perceptions right

Patty Aguilar | 03 April, 2018, 09:27

The BJP chief was referring to a recent incident when he made a gaffe by calling Yeddyurappa corrupt when he actually meant to say that incumbent CM Siddaramaiah's government should get the number one award in corruption. No one should have doubt about the Congress retaining power in the state, he added.

First, a survey by C-Fore, said that not only will the Congress party be back in the government on 15 May, but also improve its tally compared to 2013 assembly polls.

State BJP chief B S Yeddyurappa said the Siddaramaiah government has pushed Karnataka behind by at least 20 years in terms of development due to "crumbling infrastructure" and "pathetic" law and order situation in the state.

The BJP president also touched upon the issue of farmer suicides in the state and criticised Siddaramaiah for calling it a "conspiracy".

According to Shah, the JDS was not in a position to form a government because it can only win a few seats, BJP is the only party that can defeat the Congress. Yeddyurappa is a Lingayat strongman and the BJP's chief ministerial candidate for Karnataka elections. "It can not bring about change, as it is limited to certain pockets in the region", he said. He began his tour of the old Mysuru region on Friday, covering the districts of Mysuru and Chamarajanagara, where BJP had not won even a single seat in the previous election. He will also be visiting the Sri Cheluvanarayanaswamy temple in Melukote in Mandya.

Siddaramaiah, who had earlier contested from the Varuna constituency in Mysuru, has made a decision to shift to Chamundeshwari, paving the way for this son Yathindra Siddaramaiah to make his electoral debut.

Western Odisha, considered the strong base of the BJP in Odisha, has slipped into the hands of the BJD since 2009.

"I would like to tell the people of the state that Siddaramaiah's time has come to an end".
