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).

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.

The meeting assumes significance as the BJP aims to strengthen its presence in several states and retain power in others.
