Congress’ Karnataka Election Manifesto bets on Starts-ups and SMEs

Congress’ Karnataka Election Manifesto bets on Starts-ups and SMEs

He said the Congress in Karnataka would be wiped out by a BJP "tsunami" and that Chief Minister Siddaramaiah would lose both from Badami and Chamundeshwari. The Karnataka wing BJP on Monday filed a complaint against Independent MLA Jignesh Mevani and actor Prakash Raj with the Chief Electoral Officer for "having used defamatory and abusive language" against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Party's chief ministerial candidate BS Yeddyurappa. Modi is expected to address at least 15 rallies in the state, while Shah will address 30 and Adityanath 20 rallies, party sources said. On May 5, Modi will address rallies at Tumakuru at 11am, Shivamogga at 3pm and Gadag at 6pm. He is likely to be in Raichur, Chitradurga, and Kolar on 7 May, as per the tentative schedule.

On May 8, the PM will address rallies at Vijayapura at 11am, Mangaluru at 3pm and at Bengaluru at 6pm, Simha said.

Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah conducted a road show in poll-bound Karnataka's Davanagere on Sunday. Referring to state BJP president B.S. Yeddyurappa's son being denied a ticket from Varuna these polls, he claimed several BJP leaders, particularly Minister Ananthkumar Hegde, had worked against him to ensure he was not fielded.

The Karnataka BJP, however, took to Twitter to hit back at the Congress.

"Janardhan Reddy has not been included in the electioneering list of the BJP".

Modi will address a rally in Santhemarahalli town of Chamarajanagar district, where the party has never been very strong, as local leaders believe the BJP has the opportunity to make gains in the region.

The MP further said that Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi were out on bail in the multi thousand crore National Herald Case.

Former MyLAC and Chairman M.V. Ravishankar and others were present at the press meet.
