CM Siddaramaiah files nomination from Badami

Karnataka Assembly elections 2018 Here is why Siddaramaiah is contesting 2 seats

Siddaramaiah is fighting election from Chamundeshwari and Sriramulu is contesting from Molkalamuru apart from their face off in Badami.

The Congress presented documents of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) which showed the cases against the Reddy brothers - Gali Somashekhara Reddy and Gali Karunakar Reddy - were dropped within a span of 17 days after BS Yeddyurappa, another accused in the multi-crore scam, was declared as the BJP's chief ministerial candidate.

Siddramaiah, who has repeatedly asserted that the Congress will score a second straight win in one of its remaining strongholds, had initially said he would contest only from Chamundeshwari, a constituency that gave him "political birth".

The surveys have also predicted the Janata Dal (Secular) to be kingmaker saying neither BJP nor the Congress will be in a position to form the government without the former's support.

Party sources said Modi, BJP's biggest crowd-puller, is likely to kick off a series of rallies in the southern state from May 1.

Some state and district level officers under the influence of Congress are either delaying or denying permission to BJP functionaries for poll campaign. With over two weeks left for polling and BJP's top guns like PM Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath poised to campaign, Congress is harping incessantly on BJP's national performance. "We will definitely win this", he added.

BJP on Monday released fourth list of 7 candidates raising the total number of candidates fielded by the party to 220.

Mr Moily alleged that the JD (S) was working out a internal alliance with the BJP even before the elections by naming weak candidates in many segments to benefit the BJP and the saffron party was also reciprocating this move with the JD (S).

All these factors will work against BJP and help Congress emerge an impressive victor, he added.

He said the Congress party was very strong in 154 rural constituencies due to various welfare schemes like the "hunger-free Karnataka" project.

As Karnataka polls near, Sandalwood actor, director Upendra is nowhere to be seen G R Pravin Patil (Bhadravati), H Lilavathi (Ramanagara), Nandini Gowda (Kanakpura), H K Suresh (Belur), J Preetham Gowda (Hassan) are the other candidates who make it to the BJP list.

The party has supported congress in 2004 and ran coalition government. "The election in this state is akin to the battle of Mahabharata, between the Pandavas and the Kauravas".
