Congress misrule will catapult BJP to power in Karnataka: Muralidhar Rao

Pilot alleged the government did not act responsibly when violence broke out during Bharat Bandh last week in Rajasthan

The Congress and the BJP have adopted a wait-and-watch policy in declaring their candidates for the Karnataka assembly elections.

Other candidates of BJP from constituencies of Uttara Kannada district include Rupali Naik (Karwar), Vishweshwar Hegde Kageri (Sirsi), Sunil Hegde (Haliyal), VS Patil (Yellapur).

Voices of dissent were visible even when the list was being made public, with many citing that party has not applied the "one-family, one-ticket" formula for the Karnataka polls and granted tickets to the Chief Minister and his son, Home Minister and his daughter, and the Law Minister and his son. There is also no woman candidate among the 82 names.

The BJP's second list, released Monday, is devoid of surprises, featuring nearly the same set of leaders who took it to power for the first time in a southern state, back in 2008.

On April 8, the BJP had declared its first list of 72 candidates that included its chief ministerial candidate BS Yeddyurappa, and senior leaders KS Eshwarappa and Jagadish Shettar. However, Congress party workers in the state didn't seem too convinced with the choice of candidates and took to streets on Monday to express their anger. "If the high command doesn't address this aspect of the state leadership, it might bring losses for the party", he said. CM Siddaramaiah is set to contest from Chamundeshwari putting an end to the two-seat theory.

A controversy had also broken out over Congress Working President Dinesh Gundu Rao's statements on UP CM Adityanath over his alleged inaction over Unnao rape case. Supporters of five-time MLA DB Inamdar were angry because the party has not announced its candidate from the Kittur constituency.

The party is yet to name candidates for Shantinagar segment in Bengaluru Central, Kittar, Nagthan, Sindgi, Raichur and Melukote.
