Karnataka Election 2018: List of BJP Candidates

BJP has also raised the issue on social media and taken a dig at the chief minister

Observers say that the target of the veteran saffron leaders/workers is the controversial Pauri municipal council president who was recently stripped of his financial power by the State Government on the basis of the probe report sent by Garhwal commissioner and the district magistrate.

Mr. Yadav and Om Prakash Mathur, both close aides of Mr. Shah, have been made in charge of Bombay Karnataka (50 seats), a region where the BJP has to win big to cross the halfway mark, and coastal Karnataka (37 seats), where the party lost in 2013.

As per his poll affidavit, Yeddyurappa declared cash and bank deposits of Rs 34 lakh, immovable assets - including two residential buildings in Bengaluru and Shikaripura valued at over Rs 3.38 crore, and agricultural land worth about Rs 54 lakh - apart from 2.9 kg gold and 84.80 kg silver valued at over Rs 1 crore. "The GST was introduced only after consulting chief ministers of all states".

Speaking to BJP workers in Bengaluru, Amit Shah, who has called the claim for separate religion status for Lingayats an "election ploy" of the Congress, hailed Basavanna, or Basaveshwara, as an unparalleled philosopher of the world.

BJP Ministers quit Mehbooba Govt
However, a senior BJP leader said, "No resignation was accepted and all leaders were asked to resume work". Singh said he would not have resigned if the media had not created a negative perception about him.

Mr. Shah gave the credit to the party's booth level workers and booth presidents for emerging victorious in the recent Tripura and Manipur Assembly elections.

Mr Shah held a brief meeting with state leaders at his Bengaluru residence situated at Chalukya Circle here on Wednesday and reportedly expressed his displeasure over the fact that the city unit of the BJP had not groomed strong candidates for more than six Assembly constituencies in Bengaluru. Wherever the party leadership would ask us to go, we will go and give our best.

On the second day of his tour, the BJP president will meet party workers and leaders from across the state.

Sources said the party is also yet to decide on fielding Udupi-Chikkamagaluru MP, Shobha Karandlaje in the polls. While the ruling Congress party is not favored to get a full majority, the Bharatiya Janata Party led by BS Yeddyurappa is expected to get around 85 seats. These leaders have reportedly given a feedback to Mr Shah that it was because of Ms Karandlaje that the BJP suffered a vertical split a few years ago, said sources.
