     The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is expected to release its list of candidates for the upcoming Karnataka assembly elections on either Monday or Tuesday, following a meeting of the party's central election committee on Sunday. The finalized list is anticipated to include the names of those who will be contesting for seats in the state's legislative assembly.



 A high-level meeting was held today and it was attended by some of India's top leaders including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, home minister Amit Shah, and defense minister Rajnath Singh, as well as the party president J P Nadda, Karnataka chief minister Basavaraj Bommai, and other members of the Parliamentary Board. The agenda of the meeting has not been disclosed, but it is expected to have focused on important national issues and the strategy of the ruling party going forward. The meeting has garnered significant attention and speculation from political analysts and media outlets.


The PM Called A Meeting upon Returning from Karnataka


     The Congress and Janata Dal-Secular (JDS) have announced their candidates for the upcoming Karnataka polls. The Congress announced a total of 166 candidates while the JDS announced 93 candidates. The Congress had initially declared 124 candidates in its first list and later announced another 42 candidates in the second list. The JDS, on the other hand, announced 126 candidates in its first list and 67 candidates in its second list. With the announcement of candidates by both parties, the stage is set for a heated electoral battle in the state. The Karnataka polls are scheduled to be held on May 12, 2023 and the results will be declared on May 15, 2023.


     This is in contrast to the approach taken by rival parties, the Congress and theJD(S), which have already announced most of their candidates. However, there is a possibility that the names of few candidates may be revealed a few days before the last day of filing nominations, in order to prevent any potential rebellion within the party. The announcement of the final list of candidates is eagerly awaited by supporters and political observers alike.


     The state is all set for a high-stakes battle between the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the Congress Party, and the Janata Dal (Secular). Political parties have already begun campaigning in full swing, with the focus primarily on issues such as farmer distress, job creation, and development. The Election Commission has assured that strict Covid-19 protocols will be in place during polling and counting of votes on May 13th. All eyes are now on the upcoming polls, which will determine the political fate of the Karnataka.


     In a bid to finalize the tickets for the upcoming state elections, BJP President JP Nadda and Home Minister Amit Shah held a marathon meeting with state leaders for more than 4 hours earlier today. The meeting was aimed at deliberating on the potential candidates and finalizing the ticket distribution strategy for the state polls. The meeting assumes significance as the BJP aims to strengthen its presence in several states and retain power in others. The BJP is expected to announce the candidates soon and kickstart its campaign for the Karnataka state elections.
