'Janardhana Reddy campaigning for Sriramulu not for BJP'

BJP, which sees Karnataka poll as a high test of its popularity and the last nail on the coffin of Congress ahead of 2019 Lok Sabha polls, has hinged its hopes on Modi's sway with the Karnataka electorate.

With polling in two weeks, the high stakes Karnataka assembly election is playing out like a do or die contest. All the preparations have been done to the lead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's rally.

The party's president Amit Shah has been frequenting the state for months, holding rallies, meeting religious heads, addressing community events and toning up organisational machinery in the run-up to the election.

The letter further accused Mevani and Raj of making relentless attempts towards jeopardising Prime Minister Modi's and Yeddyurappa's image.

# 09:40 AM: Siddaramaiah fires "welcome" salvo at PM Modi: Dear Narendra Modi, Heard you are visiting Namma Karnataka tomorrow.

In a series of tweets, assailed the prime minister over BJP giving tickets to "tainted" mining baron G Janardhan Reddy's brothers and associates as also declaring Yeddyurappa its chief ministerial candidate.

#09:39 AM: Stop giving us lecture on corruption: Would G Janardhan Reddy be joining your rallies here? "You first make scam tainted @BSYBJP your party's CM" face in Karnataka. "Kannadigas aren't wearing Kamala (lotus, the BJP's election symbol) on their ears", Mr Siddaramaiah wrote.

The BJP MP also demanded that Chief Minister Siddaramaiah tender an unconditional apology to the people of Karnataka for not rectifying the mistakes in the manifesto.

Of the 19 seats in coastal Karnataka, the Congress has 13, the BJP 3 and 3 seats have been won by Independents (one of who is now with the Congress).
