BJP chief Amit Shah on two-day tour to poll-bound Karnataka

BJP chief Amit Shah in Karnataka on Thursday

In a major jolt to the BJP and its nominee from Afzalpur in the imminent Assembly polls Malikayya Guttedar, over a 100 party activists, including office-bearers of the party structure at various levels and elected representatives, have resolved to quit the BJP to join the Congress. The elections to the 13 seats will be held on 26 April with the ruling BJP being certain of winning at least 11 seats, going by its brute majority in the state legislative assembly.

"With party MPs Savitribai Phoole, Ashok Dohrey, Chhotelal, Yashwant Singh virtually raising a banner of revolt against chief minister Yogi Aditynath, Shah had a long discussion with the chief minister at the latter's 5 Kalidas Marg residence to assuage their hurt sentiments".

Modi and other BJP leaders are slated to observe a day-long fast tomorrow to protest the washout due to disruptions by the opposition.

SBSP chief and state minister Om Prakash Rajbhar, presented to the BJP chief a memorandum of demands that he said should be settled forthright. "He is a good speaker only in public meetings but not in Parliament, where one has to answer to allegations and accusations by the opposition", he said.

"The Prime Minister will also visit the Cancer Institute, Adyar in Chennai", an official statement said on Wednesday.

As part of the campaign, a feast would be arranged from the foodgrains collected from the farmers where BJP will promise to the farmers that it will support them if the party comes to power, BJP sources said.

Law and order and the Dalit agitation in the state along with the alliance of the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party also came up during the deliberations.

The BJP President however also asked Rajbhar to ensure that his legislators also toed the "coalition dharma" as two of his four ML's were under cloud for their likely cross-voting for SP candidates in the Rajya Sabha biennial elections last month. The Congress is very far away from the BJP figures, despite being the second in line with the income of Rs. 225.36 crore, according to the report. "We believe in transparency and provide details of all political donations to not only the Election Commission, but the income tax department too".
