Yeddyurappa is the chief ministerial candidate for the BJP as the party is targeting to win 150 out of the total 224 assembly seats in the Karnataka elections.

In the 2013 Assembly elections, Eshwarappa contested again from the Shimoha assembly constituency and lost to K.B. Prasanna Kumar of the Congress by a margin of almost 6,000 votes. The party is in alliance with Bahujan Samaj Party for Karnataka polls.With polling day inching closer, Karnataka has turned into a political battleground with both the ruling Congress and the opposition BJP extensively campaigning across the state. The CM and PCC chief are also expected to meet Congress president Rahul Gandhi to explain their strategy in the selecting the candidates.

According to sources, Siddaramaiah will contest from Badami in Bagalkote district along with Chamundeshwari. The party has fielded Yeddyurappa from the Shikaripura seat. But Siddaramaiah is confident of getting votes from people of all castes and religions. A weird case of defection was reported from Mangaluru where a local Congress leader quit his party to join Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the morning and later returned to his old party in the evening.


The polls have become a serious business to most of the politicians especially for the leaders in the Congress.

Guttedar, a powerful OBC leader in Gulbarga district, was earlier a minister in Congress government.

The Karnataka Congress on Tuesday had alerted that a fake list of candidates of the Indian National Congress for the forthcoming assembly elections in the state is being diffused on the social media.
