Amit Shah accuses Siddaramaiah govt of 'dividing' Hindus

The Election Commission of India (EC) on Tuesday announced that the Karnataka Assembly elections will be held on May 12, 2018, and the counting of votes will be conducted three days later on May 15.

The Karnataka state Assembly polls may also have bearing on the 2019 Lok Sabha election. The EC also said that April 24 will be the last date to file nominations and April 27 will be the last date for withdrawal of candidature.

This time in Karnataka, like all other recent polls, VVPAT machines will be deployed along with EVMs.

The term of Karnataka's 224-seat assembly comes to an end on 28 May and the new government must be in place before that.

While the elections are critical for the Congress that has been wiped out from most major States it used to rule, they are also important for the BJP to make in-roads into South India, a region that has proved hard for it to foray into. The counting date turned out to be wrong as the EC announced that the votes will be counted on May 15.

"BJP becomes the "Super Election Commission" as they announce poll dates for Karnataka even before the EC".

"It is my kind submission that my tweet was in no way meant to infringe upon the constitutional mandate of the Election Commission", Malviya also said.

The campaigning in the poll-bound state has already begun, with leaders of Congress and the BJP - Rahul Gandhi and Amit Shah - visiting the state at regular intervals.

BJP has multiplied rallies in the state.

Shah quickly corrected himself when BJP MP Prahlad Joshi seated next to him audibly whispered "Siddaramaiah", the name of the incumbent chief minister belonging to the Congress party.

Shah's meeting with the seer is being seen as an attempt to reach out to the Lingayats/Veeshaivas, who are numerically and politically powerful in the state and form a major voter base for the BJP.

Karnataka assembly elections will be held on how many polling stations?

"'Lingayat card' played by Congress is not aimed at benefiting the community but to stop BS Yeddyurappa from becoming the chief minister".
