Priyanka and Rahul Gandhi are campaigning for the party across Karnataka, and they know how much it costs the party if Congress leaders abuse Narendra Modi. On Monday, Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge’s MLA son Priyank Kharge called PM Modi a ‘worthless son’.
Immediately after this, BJP leaders started retaliating by expressing their displeasure over this statement of Priyank Kharge. Priyanka and Rahul do not want to give much importance to this matter, as Congress is trying to fight the Karnataka elections in the name of local issues and local leaders. They know that if the election is fought in the name of Modi, then there will be trouble.
The Bharatiya Janata Party President JP Nadda has released the party’s manifesto in Karnataka, which includes two big promises: Uniform Civil Code and NRC implementation, and many things will be given free of cost to poor families. The party has fielded an army of 135 leaders to campaign in Karnataka, including UP CM Yogi Adityanath, Home Minister Amit Shah, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Vishwa Sharma, Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan and Union ministers.
PM Modi is also doing a stormy tour of Karnataka, and BJP leaders are confident that Modi will turn the tide in their favor. Congress leaders are also working hard in campaigning, but the BJP’s focus is on the 65 seats it has never won, while the Congress is going strong on the seats it holds. Akhilesh has a lot at stake in UP civic elections.
Voting for the local body elections in Uttar Pradesh will take place on May 4 and 11, with the counting of votes taking place on May 13. UP CM Yogi Adityanath is campaigning in Moradabad, Pratapgarh, Varanasi and Gorakhpur on Monday and Prayagraj on Tuesday. He is targeting Akhilesh Yadav, Mayawati and Congress, as well as AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi.
Yogi is presenting Atiq and Mukhtar as symbols and is projecting this as the zero tolerance policy of the government against crime and criminals. Akhilesh Yadav has a lot at stake, as urban voters distancing themselves from the Samajwadi Party will affect his strategy for next year’s Lok Sabha elections.
