BJP Releases List of 40 Star Campaigners For Karnataka Polls 2018

"Rae Bareli has seen "parivarvad" (dynastic politics) ever since Independence till this day and no development.I have come here to make it clear that the BJP will free Rae Bareli of "parivarvad" and will start the campaign from today itself for taking it on the path of "vikasvad" (development)", he said.

"We our cadre based party, while all others are leader based", the BJP chief added.

As per his poll affidavit, Yeddyurappa declared cash and bank deposits of Rs 34 lakh, immovable assets - including two residential buildings in Bengaluru and Shikaripura valued at over Rs 3.38 crore, and agricultural land worth about Rs 54 lakh - apart from 2.9 kg gold and 84.80 kg silver valued at over Rs 1 crore. Mr Siddaramaiah trained his guns on Mr Shah after the BJP national president openly said that it was Mr Siddaramaiah who tried to divide Hindus, particularly Veerashaiva Lingayats by recommending the religion status for Lingayats.

The BJP president also underlined the schemes and policies of the government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Centre for the welfare of farmers.

Eshwarappa, who was the Deputy Chief Minister in the BJP's first government in the state from 2008 to 2013, will be contesting from the seat for the sixth time.


Though the BJP swept UP in the 2014 general election, the BJP lost both Rae Bareli and Amethi to the Congress.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah filed his nomination on Friday from Chamundeshwari seat.

A total of 135 candidates in 92 constituencies have filed a total of 155 nominations till Thursday, with a few candidates preferring multiple nominations.

Exuding confidence that the BJP will win the Karnataka assembly election, he said, "The BJP will have its 16th state government in the country after May 15". Scrutiny is on April 25 and the last date for withdrawal of candidatures is April 27.
