Karnataka polls will reveal national mood, say parties
Bangalore: Karnataka's electoral outcome will reveal what the national mood is ahead of upcoming Lok Sabha elections, say both the BJP and the Congress. This is probably one of the reasons why the Sunday election has attracted so much national attention.
Voters will pick 223 members for the 225-seat assembly that includes one nominated member. Polling in Periyapatna in Mysore district has been cancelled following the death of the BJP candidate. The assembly election is taking place amid unprecedented corruption scandals haunting the Congress at the national level and the Bharatiya Janata Party in Karnataka.
Both the parties say the Karnataka outcome would be a pointer to the national mood among the electorate. In the 1985 Lok Sabha poll, the state voted overwhelmingly for the Congress, giving the party 24 of the 28 seats. A few months later the Congress was defeated soundly in the assembly poll as the electorate preferred the Janata Party.
BJP leader Subramanian Swamy criticised the Aam Aadmi Party for taking support from the Congress. Swamy said that the AAP has committed suicide by opting for an alliance with the Congress.
