India Debates: Does Narendra Modi have the most to lose in the battle for Karnataka?

310 views 19 hours ago
It was all over the media and particularly on the social media. From radio, television, hoardings to aggressive campaigns on Facebook and Twitter, the so called 'Modi wave' literally swept the people! However, whether the wave really touched the electoral ground at all in Karnataka is questionable. For, going by the trend, people of Karnataka have returned to the basics of politics during this election, particularly during the final stages of campaigning. Regionalism, caste combinations and capability of the candidates have taken the centre-stage with the 'Modi wave' felt only in the urban areas. The BJP, which suffered a humiliating defeat during the last assembly elections, heavily depended on the 'Modi wave' to boost its image. The return of former chief minister BS Yeddyurappa and former minister B Sriramulu has helped the party only in their respective constituencies and not the consolidation of the entire caste calculations, as expected by the BJP.
