Voter ID row: BJP delegation to meet Election Commission

Voter ID row: BJP delegation to meet Election Commission

"Congress pleads to all other parties to form alliance, But keeping all senior leaders from other parties in complete darkness, he (Rahul) declared himself as the next PM", Modi said. The Congress has realised its "vote bank politics is shaken" and, therefore, it has started a campaign for "misleading and spreading lies" among Dalits, and asked them to be aware, Modi said. The Election Commission Tuesday, May 8, confirmed that it had seized 9,746 voter ID cards from a flat in the Jalahalli area of Bengaluru. The election for one constituency has been deferred following the death of B.N. Vijay Kumar, Jayanagar BJP candidate.

Data provided by the Chief Electoral Office in Karnataka has indicated that the BJP will contest all 224 seats, while the Congress will contest 222 seats. Apart from addressing three rallies on Wednesday, Rahul will visit two temples and a garment factory.

The BJP leaders will have to face civil and criminal action and pay damages of Rs 100-crore in the event of the BJP leaders failed to withdraw their statements and issuing an unconditional public apology, the notice added.

Mr Gandhi, who resumed his poll campaign for the May 12 assembly polls, took out a protest march in Maluru in Kolar against rising petrol prices by riding a bicycle with other Congress workers walking or running behind him. "The BJP has viewed Karnataka as a "gateway to the south" and the Karnataka prize could help the party acquire a pan-India profile", she said.




"We are asking the Prime Minister who is coming on a regular basis to Karnataka to please explain to the people of Karnataka why he has chosen a corrupt person with a record of being in jail as his Chief Ministerial candidate", Gandhi said.

Campaigning in the Lingayat stronghold of Vijayapura, he alleged the state's ruling Congress was trying to divide the society and spread the "poison of casteism".

The Congress hit back with a vengeance, claiming BJP was making such allegations because it was aware of its imminent defeat. "We win an election and we are okay with losing anelection", he said.

This is the second time when Rahul Gandhi has indicated that is ready to become Prime Minister if Congress gets a majority in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The flat, he said, belonged to a BJP worker. "The party, which talks about honesty and decency, has a person who has been accused of murder as its President", said Gandhi.
