Election Commission order deferring RR Nagar poll clear indictment of Congress: BJP

Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi did roadshows for Congress on the concluding day.

BJP spokesperson Vaman Acharya merely said: "No comments".

Like all state polls since he assumed the reins of power in New Delhi, Mr Modi helmed the BJP's adrenaline-charged campaign despite the party having declared B.S. Yeddyurappa its chief ministerial candidate, while Rahul Gandhi spearheaded that of the Congress. Reacting to the comment, Modi wondered whether the country would ever accept such an "immature and naamdar (famous)" leader for the post.

In Badami, he is pitted against Chief Minister Siddaramaiah. It is ironical that Karnataka, one of the high-growth and progressive States, was turned into a hunting ground for a divisive campaign based on identity instead of debating over development issues. In its last lap on Thursday, while a confidence-exuding Amit Shah declaring that his party will emerge as a full majority party in the state, PM Modi addressed BJP's SC/ST/OBC and Slum Morcha workers through his Namo App and said, "There is no place for dalits and backward classes in the heart of the Congress".

Talking to ANI, Union Minister of Statistics and Programme Implementation, and former state chief minister Sadanand Gowda alleged that the Congress candidate from Rajarajeshwari Nagara, Munirathna Naidu, was behind the fake ID cards row. Addressing a press conference at the end of the BJP's campaign, Shah predicted that the BJP will win over 130 seats.

"It is the Election Commission's job to investigate".

VVPAT machines will be used with all EVMs.

"I have now learnt to deal with the Prime Minister".

"It warrants immediate exercise of the EC's constitutional powers under Article 324 of the Constitution of India", the memorandum said.

In 2008, however, the BJP won this constituency with a margin of 5,107 votes (4.29%), receiving 44.85% of the votes polled. That is a 173 percent rise in the farmers' suicide rate.

If Modi secures a victory today, his party will nearly certainly see continued success as Karnataka is one of the only major states held by Congress. In case of a hung assembly in the state, the JD (S) will be the deciding factor for the fate of BJP and Congress. But whether the Congress would emulate the feat after decades of political turmoil that saw the fortunes of Congress, Janata Parivar and the BJP fluctuating wildly and tall leaders bit the dust as Kannadigas with rich political awareness changed rulers of the state punishing ruthlessly the non performers.

All eyes now shift to May 12 and May 15.
