BJP, Congress, JDS in close fight; voting to begin at 7 am

"Congress is losing public support and they are trying hard to rig the upcoming elections in Karnataka by undemocratic ways".

The Congress party on Thursday released two videos, dating back to 2010, allegedly showing Sriramulu and G Janardhana Reddy in a negotiation to bribe the son in law of a former Supreme Court Judge to get a favourable verdict in a iron ore mining scam case. "Upon viewing the video, there can be no doubt as to the agenda of the meeting taking place", the Congress said in its memorandum.

Mr Shah, who extensively campaigned in the state, told reporters in Bengaluru on Thursday, "The Congress wants to win elections in an undemocratic manner".

Four current and former chief ministers are also in the fray, including Siddramaiah, who is contesting from Badami and Chamundeshwari, Yeddyurappa from Shikaripura, Kumaraswamy (Chennapatna and Ramanagara), and BJP's Jagdish Shettar from Hubbali-Dharwad.

On the last day, Congress President Rahul Gandhi slammed the Modi government for issues ranging from atrocities against Dalits to the country's foreign policy as he expressed confidence in winning the Karnataka polls "hands down".

He said a third victim had been attacked inside the building, which was then set alight, and had jumped out of a window. Prem Balram, a spokesman for Reaction Unit SA (Rusa), said: "One of the three has just died on his way to hospital".

Mr Gandhi said Mr Modi's attack on him declaring his Prime Ministerial ambitions was aimed at distracting attention. Hassan also showcases a chronically unfinished airport project, pushed during Gowda's prime ministership. The election for one constituency has been postponed following the death of B N Vijay Kumar, the Jayanagar BJP candidate.

Among the 58000 poling booths across the State over 21,000 have been declared critical and extra security arrangements have been made to ensure free and fair polls. 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. In 2013, a turnout of 70.23 per cent was recorded.

Modi repeatedly addressed the Siddaramaiah ministry as 'seedha rupaiah government (a government that takes bribes for work) and "10 per cent commission government'". One of its three chief ministers and its current chief ministerial candidate B S Yeddyurappa was in jail over corruption charges.

The Congress has been criticising BJP and the Prime Minister for their decision to give tickets to eight persons from the Reddy "camp" including his brothers G Somashekara Reddy and G Karunakara Reddy. Answering a query, he said a few activists of BJP and JD (S) were already on the spot before the flying squad reached there.
