Assembly elections are to be held in Karnataka this year and BJP is making all out efforts to get power once again. Although the BJP is making many claims about its victory, but according to sources, there is a fear within the party that the road to Karnataka will not be easy for it this time.

Anti-incumbency atmosphere against BJP

The atmosphere of anti-incumbency against BJP is very strong in the state. This is the reason that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Karnataka today for the sixth time in three months. He will lay the foundation stone and inaugurate various projects worth 16000 crores here. This also includes the much-awaited Bengaluru-Mysuru Expressway.

PM Modi is visiting the state for the sixth time in three months

The BJP is in power in Karnataka since 20 July 2019. The party also had to change its chief ministerial face during this tenure. In place of Yeddyurappa, the party handed over the keys of power to Basavaraj Bommai. However, voices of protest against Bommai have been continuously coming to the fore in the state and the ministry. Elections are round the corner and BJP is making all out efforts to regain power in the state. Party sources say that BJP is putting full force in the state. This is the reason why PM Modi is visiting the state for the sixth time in three months.

Prime Minister Modi will lay the foundation stone and inaugurate various schemes worth 16 thousand crores in Karnataka

Prime Minister Modi will be on Karnataka tour and will lay the foundation stone and inaugurate various schemes worth 16 thousand crores. This includes the Bangalore to Mysore Expressway. The distance from this expressway will reduce from 3 hours to 75 minutes. PM Modi has tweeted before the inauguration that this expressway will write a new story of Karnataka’s development. According to the information, the Prime Minister will dedicate the Bengaluru-Mysore Expressway to the nation at around 12 noon. The project involves 6-laning of the Bengaluru-Nidaghatta-Mysore section of NH-275. The 118 kilometer long project has been developed at a total cost of about Rs 8480 crore.

BJP was shocked by the survey report

According to sources, in the month of February, the RSS submitted a survey report regarding Karnataka to the BJP. It is being claimed that BJP can win 70 to 75 seats in the elections. Whereas, for a majority in 224 seats, any party needs 113 seats. CM Bommai and State President Nalin Kumar Kateel seem to have failed to keep faith in the people. In such a situation, the high command itself has taken full responsibility. BJP’s focus has increased a lot towards Karnataka. On the other hand, the Congress is adopting an aggressive approach to regain power in its old bastion Karnataka.

Anti-incumbency atmosphere against BJP

Experts believe that the anti-incumbency atmosphere against BJP has increased a lot in Karnataka. In fact, on March 3, Rs 8 crore cash was recovered from the premises of BJP MLA Madal Virupakshappa. His son was arrested by the Lokayukta on bribery charges of Rs 48 lakh. Congress is campaigning against BJP across the state on the basis of corruption.

Yeddyurappa and PM Modi pair

Recently, on the occasion of Yeddyurappa’s birthday, PM Modi reached Karnataka and congratulated him. Their pictures also surfaced while walking hand in hand. PM Modi in an address during that time had also requested people to light mobile flashlights in honor of Yeddyurappa. PM Modi’s attention towards Yeddyurappa shows that Yeddyurappa can prove to be an important link for the party in Karnataka elections. Yeddyurappa’s clout in the Lingayat community could make things easier for the BJP. On the other hand, PM Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah are continuously trying to calm the atmosphere against the party by holding rallies.
