High Voltage-Campaign For Karnataka Assembly Elections Ends: Polling On May 10 And Counting On 13

Bangalore/Hyderabad, May 8 (Maxim News): The high voltage campaign for the assembly elections in Karnataka has ended today, the polling will be held on May 10 and the counting of votes will be on May 13.

All three major political parties in the state — BJP, Congress and JD(S) have put their efforts to the last pitch to woo the voters. The top guns of all the major political parties have campaigned across the state in the last few days, even the ruling BJP has been striving to break the 38-year-old pattern of alternating governments and retain its southern citadel.

The Congress on its part has worked hard to wrest power from the BJP and to maintain momentum to position itself as the main opposition player in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

The JD(S) led by former Prime Minister H.D. Deve Gowda was seen putting all its might into campaigning wanting to emerge as “king” and not “kingmaker”. hoping to get the required numbers to form a government on its own.

Government with full majority, seemed to be the favourite slogan of the leaders of all the political parties during the campaigning for the elections to the 224-member Assembly, as they stressed getting a clear mandate to form a strong and stable government in the state.

While BJP’s campaign largely centralised with the focus being on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the double engine government, national issues and programmes or achievements of the union government coupled with a few from the state, the Congress by and large focused on local issues and was also run by its local leaders initially. However, its central leaders like AICC President Mallikarjun Kharge, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra joined in subsequently. JD(S) too ran a highly localised campaign, anchored solely by its leader H.D Kumaraswamy, with party patriarch Deve Gowda too joining in, despite advanced age and related ailments.

Modi’s campaign juggernaut in the past week since April 29 moved steadily ahead with as many as 18 mega public meetings and six roadshows so far. The Prime Minister canvassed votes for BJP candidates across the state with the poll slogan. “Ee Baariya Nirdhara, Bahumatada BJP Sarkara ” (This time’s Decision: Majority BJP Government). Modi’s campaigning across the state has boosted the party’s morale and confidence among the electorate. Union Home Minister amit shah to has extensively travelled the state, campaigning and strategising for the polls

A number of BJP leaders including party national president JP Nadda, Chief Ministers of BJP-ruled states like Yogi Adiyanath, Himanta Biswa Sarma, Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Pramod Sawant as well as Union Ministers Nirmala Sitharaman, S. Jaishankar, smriti irani, Nitin Gadkari, among others to have travelled to various parts of the state for campaigning. (Maxim News)
