Karnataka poll schedule was not leaked: EC Committee

Karnataka poll schedule was not leaked: EC Committee

The workers and leaders are said to have tried to convince Siddaramaiah to contest from Badami in Bagalkote, stating that it would help party's prospects in the north Karnataka region.

The committee, comprising director general Dhirendra Ojha, senior deputy election commissioner Umesh Sinha and deputy election commissioners Chandra Bhushan Kumar and Sandeep Saxena, in its report stated that its terms of reference included probing the source of information for the alleged leak.

Parliament members Prahlad Joshi, Suresh Angadi and Prabhakar Kore accompanied Mr Shah during the Kittur visit.

Compared to how things now stand in the Karnataka Assembly, the Congress will see its seat-share fall while the BJP will see its numbers go up. However, JD (S) claims to have improved its base in social media in the last five years, with access to 15,000 WhatsApp groups, hundreds of fan pages each with 70,000 to 1 lakh followers, 40 lakh e-mail addresses and 1.4 crore phone numbers, acquired from various sources.

Taking into account the response of Times Now that "given that the information was not entirely accurate, it is obvious it was not a leak", the committee too held that it was of the "opinion that there was no lead of schedule of elections to the Karnataka legislative assembly, 2018". The good news for the Congress is that the JD (S)-BSP combine is more likely to plumb for the Congress; According to the survey, 39 per cent want the JD (S)+ to tie up with the Congress in case of a hung Assembly while 29 per cent want the party to ally with the BJP. As many as 62 per cent of the interviews were in rural areas, the remaining in urban centres. The opinion poll has been conducted a month before the Southern state goes to poll on May 12.

Nearly 45 percent of electorate in Karnataka are of the opinion that the Siddaramaiah-led Congress government in Karnataka should be given another chance.

Support for giving the party a second chance is particularly high among Muslims (65 per cent).

The India Today-Karvy Insights pre-poll survey predictions are quite similar to those of a TV9 Kannada-C-Voter opinion poll published in January.

An overwhelming 45% of those surveyed believe that the Congress should be given a second chance. The perception that Siddaramaiah's performance has been very good or good is relatively weaker among the Vokkaligas, Lingayats and Brahmins.
