Rahul faces acid test with impending Karnataka Assembly polls

Rahul faces acid test with impending Karnataka Assembly polls

The sudden devotion could be in the backdrop of the Lingayat-Veerashaiva issue in the state. Now Congress says we never used these words.

Some senior district leaders of Bharatiya Janata Party and activists have submitted a memorandum to the party's national president Amit Shah- a copy of which was forwarded to the Prime Minister, Uttarakhand Chief Minister and the State party chief- in which they expressed their worry over the trend of inducting outsiders into the party during the time of election.

They appealed to Amit Shah to make it clear to the party brass not to do anything that might demoralize the party rank and file ahead of the high- stake 2019 general election. Chief minister Siddaramaiah took a dig at BJP president B S Yeddyurappa, saying that at least on Basava Jayanti the BJP leader should follow his principles.

The Congress too made similar plans for chief minister Siddaramaiah.

A Kuruba leader, Eshwarappa, who has served as BJP state president in the past, had previous year led a battle against Yeddyuappa's "unilateral" style of functioning by leading "Rayanna Brigade", an "apolitical forum" of Dalits and backward classes.

Prior to Shah garlanding Basaveshwarasa's statue, Lingayat community members staged a protest against Shah near Chalukya circle.

The Lingayats, who consider Basaveshwara the founder of a separate religion, have been supporters of the BJP from the late 1990s.

The BJP has set its sight on regaining power by winning 150 out of 224 assembly seats.

Win in Karnataka would be a huge psychological thing for the Congress which would then plot to upset the BJP's apple-cart in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh & Chhattisgarh where Assembly polls are to be held by year-end.
