Poll results in NE will have no bearing on Karna election: Congress

BJP takes out 'Save Bangalore' rally

The BJP government at the centre is conspiring to put off the Karnataka Legislative Assembly election due in May fearing a debacle of the party, Senior Congress leader and Bengaluru Development Minister K J George today alleged. Using the opportunity to lash out at the BJP after its national leadership was caught using "fake pictures" of communal violence, the Congress ran a hashtag on Twitter - BariOluBJP (faking BJP).

"Congress is all set to retain power in Karnataka". He has told that the Congress government is a 10% commission government.

"There will be no impact of the results of the northeastern states in Karnataka".

Congress President Rahul Gandhi will visit Karnataka for election campaigning from March 20.

On Saturday morning, the BJP hit back by releasing pictures of the recently inaugurated mega solar park in Pavagada, alleging the Congress has superimposed the CM's picture on the image of a solar park in Turkey.

Union Minister Ananthkumar said the Congress has lost its base substantially across India and is limited to Karnataka, Punjab and Puducherry.

"The BJP has made it a habit to present victory with full pomp and show but goes silent when it comes to defeats".

Another Congress leader felt the BJP would "pay dearly" for banking on former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa as he had earlier been jailed. He said the BJP secured almost half of the total vote share in Tripura, Nagaland, and Meghalaya, which shows that voters are increasingly in favour of the saffron party. Congress emerged as the single largest party with 21 seats in Meghalaya, but the BJP - with just 2 members - managed to cobble up numbers with National People's Party and other regional players.

The two leaders claimed the Congress would form government in Meghalaya and was working towards it.

Meghalaya is one of the five states and UTs now held by the Congress.
