Though the schedule for election to the 224-member assembly in Karnataka is yet to be declared, campaigning has already begun with national leaders from the Congress and the BJP training guns at each other.
The ruling Congress is seeking to retain power in Karnataka, while the BJP is eyeing to wrest the southern state from it. The Congress had unseated the BJP in Karnataka in 2013.
Congress is struggling in 40 such constituencies and many of its MLAs are facing problems regarding anti-incumbency. While the party is relying on the Siddaramaiah’s image, many leaders are working on keeping their seats and winning new ones.
