A day after almost 10,000 voter IDs were found in a flat in Bengaluru, BJP and Congress accused each other of election malpractice and approached the Election Commission on Wednesday.

The Congress leader went as far as to claim that the flat had not been raided by the Election Commissioners, but instead by hired BJP workers in order to fake the drama. "Without any doubt, defeat of Congress is written large on the wall", he said. But Shah said there's "no question of seeking or giving support to anyone".

"There is no question of hung assembly...." "What I said earlier is final - there are no links to Janaradhana Reddy, " Shah said.

"I have traversed 50,000 km across Karnataka ..."

At a press conference held Thursday - the final day of campaigning - the BJP top strategist pointed out that Siddaramaiah wasn't seeking re-election in the constituency he now represents: Varuna. Shah said there was anger in the public against the Congress' state government, on the other hand, there was increasing "affection and liking" for Modi. "Cong doesn't refrain from taking the support of traitors".
