Karnataka election 2018: BS Yeddyurappa, BJP, Shikaripura

Karnataka election 2018: BS Yeddyurappa, BJP, Shikaripura

Pune: Union Minister Ramdas Athawale today said that Congress chief Rahul Gandhi would have to wait for "10 to 15 years" to become the country's Prime Minister. Quite in contrast to the Congress party, he said, the Prime Ministerial candidate in BJP is elected with the will of the people of the country and with the mandate of the Karyakartas of the Party.

JD (S), banking on a former prime minister and a former chief minister and playing on the emotions of its survival, tried to woo the voters away from the national parties. A total of 223 constituencies will be contested in the elections slated on Saturday, with the results scheduled to be declared on May 15.

During the decade-long reign of Congress-led United Progressive Alliance from 2004, he had a couple of times spurned offers to join the cabinet, if we are to believe former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

"The barbs, the ridicule and the effort to portray him [Rahul Gandhi] as a buffoon shows that Mr Modi now accepts that Mr Gandhi is a force to reckon with" said Prof Muzaffar Assadi, a political scientist and former professor of political science at the University of Mysore. "Congress has no place for Dalits and backwards", he said.

The BJP's challenge is bolstered by a solid organisation made up of all the branches of Sangh Parivar and dedicated cadre working on the ground.

"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.

But will Mr Siddaramaiah who did not feel any anti-incumbency during his five full year of rule can turn the tide with a positive swing in his favour would be decided between 0700 and 1800 hrs tomorrow as a little over five crore electorate will exercise their franchise in almost 58,000 polling booths in 223 of the 224 constituencies that will go to polls. The third-ranked Janata Dal Secular Party is projected to hold the bargaining power.

Congress had managed to raise their tally from 80 in 2008 to 122 in 2013 with a marginal 2 per cent swing - on account of the split in the Opposition. "When he can't respond, he distracts", Gandhi told reporters in response to a question about Modi's repeated attacks on him yesterday over his prime ministerial ambition.

For long, 47-year-old Rahul Gandhi has been perceived to be a non-serious politician who is not ready to shoulder the responsibilities required of him.

The BJP president claimed that Siddaramaiah is going to lose from both the seats and expressed confidence that the BJP will win at least 130 seats in the 224-member Assembly and there will be no need to take any party's support. With the Siddaramaiah government steeped in corruption and the BJP inspiring little hope with a tainted Yeddyurappa at its head, corruption was not a major issue in this election.

Siddaramaiah has turned out to be a master practitioner of real politik and might be able to stave off the onslaught from the Sangh Parivar led by the prime minister himself to win another term and arrest his party's slide.
