Disqualify Sriramulu from contesting polls, Congress petitions EC

K'taka Polls 2018 Congress wants EC to disqualify B Sriramulu

K'taka Polls 2018 Congress wants EC to disqualify B Sriramulu

On the campaign trail in Karnataka, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress president Rahul Gandhi criss-crossed the state addressing rallies and holding road shows. A party needs 113 seats for a majority in 224-member Karnataka assembly but opinion polls predict that it will be a close fight, which could give regional party Janata Dal Secular a chance to play an important role in government formation. If the people do not want a repeat of what happened in the State between 2004 and 2008, then they need to decisively vote in favour of one party, which is highly unlikely in the present scenario, since there is no wave in favour of any party.

While attaching a National Herald news report, Rahul Gandhi in a tweet said, "This is how Modi and Yeddy (BS Yeddyurappa) are getting "Reddy" to loot Karnataka".

"Will Modi ji tell the people of Karnataka why a man who spent time in jail for corruption is the BJP's CM candidate?" He slammed the Congress for raising questions about the Army's surgical strikes in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

The political fortune of as many as 2636 candidates was at stake with the major contesting political parties, Congress and the BJP in the fray in 221 and 223 constituencies respectively. There are designated agents who herd the voters together and transport them to polling booths, in clear violation of EC norms.

After Rahul publicly declared he was ready to become the prime minister if Congress emerged as the single largest party, Modi mocked him, calling him a "dynast" and wondering whether the nation will accept him as its leader.

"In this light, the Commission further directed that the poll in the constituency shall now be taken on 28th May, 2018 (Monday) and counting of the votes of this Constituency will take place on 31st May, 2018 (Thursday)", the commission added. The decision comes after the confiscation of more than 10,000 Electoral Photo ID Cards from the aforesaid constituency on 8 May.

He was referring to the seizure of "bogus" voter ID cards from a flat here. The JD (S) has to get back to the seat of power to charge up its batteries, although it did win a fairly big chunk of 40 seats in the last elections and was on a par with the performance of the BJP, which in 2013 was a divided party. Yeddyurappa floated his own party, the Karnataka Janata Paksha in 2012, but returned to the BJP a year later.

HD Deve Gowda casts his vote and says, 'We expect a possibility of forming the government, we have done well'. He even advocated a separate flag for the State and personally ordered that the Hindi signboards on the city subways be taken down and replaced with those in Kannada.
