JD (S), the upcoming May 12 Karnataka assembly elections have become a battle for existence, as it risks losing its relevance in the state, if either Congress or BJP come to power with a clear majority.

The Janata Dal (Secular) will be the kingmaker in the State, according to the pre-poll survey.

"Thus the committee is of the opinion that there was no leak of schedule of elections to the Karnataka legislative assembly, 2018", it added.

Nearly 45 percent of electorate in Karnataka are of the opinion that the Siddaramaiah-led Congress government in Karnataka should be given another chance. On the other side, Asaduddin Owaisi's AIMIM and SDPI (Social Democratic Party of India) - parties which mainly bank on Muslim support, also have announced that they will contest in these elections separately.

An overwhelming 45% of those surveyed believe that the Congress should be given a second chance. He once again asserted that Chief Minister Siddaramaiah would suffer defeat from both constituencies he may contest from.

Surjewala also targeted the BJP government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying that the "Beti Bachao" slogan was a warning and not a campaign to educate the girl child, in an apparent reference to the recent allegations of sexual assault against BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and his brothers in Unnao, Uttar Pradesh.
