'Janardhana Reddy campaigning for Sriramulu not for BJP'

'Janardhana Reddy campaigning for Sriramulu not for BJP'

During his press briefing, he said Siddaramaia was "scared" of facing elections in Chamundeshwari constituency and hence had filed papers from Badami seat also.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to hit the campaign trail in the state from Tuesday, with rallies scheduled in Santhemarahalli, Udupi and Chikkodi on the first day.

A victory in Karnataka will be crucial for both the Congress and the BJP.

Much like Congress, even BJP has produced and aired multiple advertisements for banking maximum voters but three of such ads were recently banned by Media Certification and Monitoring Committee (MCMC) for violating the norms of Election Commission by calling the current state government "anti-people". Modi is expected to address a minimum of 16 public rallies at district levels right upto the end of campaign until May 10.

He will then head to the coastal town of Udupi, where he will seek the blessings of the head of the Pejawar Matha, Vishvesha Tirtha.




Chief Minister Siddaramaiah fired "welcome" salvo at Modi and asked him to address concerns of the Kannadigas and not give "Jumlas".

Yeddyurappa said BJP's electoral campaign would get a major fillip once Modi begins his electioneering later this week.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is making all-out efforts to oust the Siddaramaiah dispensation from power in Karnataka, the only big state the Congress governs.

In order to counter Congress president Rahul Gandhi's criticism that Mr Modi would attack the government headed by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah with state unit president B S Yeddyurappa sharing the dais, the Prime Minister has chose to keep the former chief minister busy electioneering in other constituencies. The Congress is looking to retain power under incumbent CM Siddaramaiah.
