Sriramulu, a confidant of tainted mining baron and owner of Obulapuram Mining Company (OMC) Janardhana Reddy, is contesting from two constituencies Molakalmuru and Badami in the May 12 assembly polls.

A delegation of the Congress, led by senior leaders Motilal Vora and Kapil Sibal, moved the Election Commission on Friday demanding that BJP leader B Sriramulu, who is contesting Saturday's the elections in Karnataka, be disqualified.

All eyes are on the southern state where Congress is trying hard to retain power, while the BJP is making all efforts to unseat the ruling party and grab power after losing at its hands five years ago.

"That is the reason why Baba Saheb had to face defeat and insult".

Responding to Congress President Rahul Gandhi's assertion that he is ready to take over as Prime Minister after 2019, Union Minister Dr Jitendra Singh on Thursday said that Rahul Gandhi's PM claim exhibits dynastic trait and is a part of the Congress party's mindset which has exploited the innocent masses over the last seven decades.

The EC today ordered postponement of polling to the Rajarajeshwari Nagar seat to May 28.

Unlike in the past, the Congress gave a free hand to its Chief Minister who sought to locate his politics in the assertion of regional identity and ethnic pride as a counter to majoritarian triumphalism of the BJP.

The BJP president claimed that Siddaramaiah is going to lose from both the seats and expressed confidence that the BJP will win at least 130 seats in the 224-member Assembly and there will be no need to take any party's support.

However, the BJP denied such allegations and termed the video as "fake".

For all the three chief ministerial aspirants, Siddaramaiah from Congress, Yeddyurappa from BJP and Kumaraswamy from JD (S), the 2018 elections is a "do or die" situation. "I am 100% confident because I am the chief minister".

Polling in Jayanagar Constituency in the city which had 19 candidates had been countermanded following the demise of BJP candidate B N Vijayakumar.

Counting of votes will take place on May 15 and results will be declared the same day.

Of them more than 2.52 crore aremen while roughly 2.44 crore are women and 4,552 transgenders. The voter turnout in the previous Assembly election held in the state in 2013 was 71.45 per cent.

"The Commission is satisfied that the current electoral process (in the constituency) has been vitiated on account of unlawful activities of candidates and political parties", the EC said. "Mr. Shah is not a forensic expert".

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan also made several visits to the state.
