Bengaluru: There is an unwritten rule in the Bharatiya Janata Party which states that any leader who is 75 or above will not be allowed to take a ministerial position. While the rule was made applicable to a few, one gets to see an exception when it comes to B S Yeddyurappa, the BJP’s chief ministerial candidate in Karnataka.
Bengaluru: Master stroke or self goal? These are the two questions that come to mind when one discusses the religious minority tag that Karnataka Chief Minister, Siddaramaiah recommended for the Lingayats.
Bengaluru: The big surprise for all in the Congress list of candidates was with regard to Karnataka Chief Minister, Siddaramaiah. The Congress put to rest all speculation that the CM would be contesting two seats-Chamundeshwari and Badami. He will now contest from Chamundeshwari only while his son would battle it from the neighbouring Varuna.
New Delhi: Another case of a person being honey trapped by the Pakistan’s ISI was reported and this time it was from Haryana’s Rohtak. This case however is slightly different from the ones that have been reported in the past.
Bengaluru: Like he did in Gujarat, Congress President Rahul Gandhi took time off to visit a host of temples in Karnataka as well. The temple visits by Rahul Gandhi led to the BJP’s chief ministerial candidate, B S Yeddyurappa calling him an ‘election Hindu.’
Bengaluru: For the Congress, the battle is already lost in Karnataka. When the general himself is panicking then you know the battle is lost, says G V L Narasimha Rao, BJP’s national spokesperson.
Bengaluru: If Siddaramaiah is re-elected as Chief Minister of Karnataka in 2018, he would create history of sorts. There have been 22 chief ministers in Karnataka since the re-organisation of the state since 1956, but only Devraj Urs has managed to get twin terms in 1972 and 1980.
New Delhi: The chargesheet filed by the Delhi police against an IAF officer accused of sharing information with a Pakistan spy goes on to suggest that the entire modus operandi has moved digital.
Bengaluru: A few days back there was a note supposedly prepared by the Intelligence Bureau that was doing the rounds in Karnataka. The note went on to state that the Chamundeshwari assembly constituency was not exactly a safe seat for Siddaramaiah. It also listed out four other constituencies from where the CM could contest.
