Karnataka Assembly polls : Congress emerges victor in Pre-poll survey

Karnataka Assembly polls : Congress emerges victor in Pre-poll survey”

Rawat said that strict action will be taken against the BJP's social media head Amit Malviya for wrongly posting the dates of Karnataka elections even before the EC had announced the same.

Did the @BJP4India IT cell actually announce the Election Dates in Karnataka even before the Election Commission did?

Date of issue of gazette notification: April 17, 2018. The last date for withdrawal of nominations is April 27, date of scrutiny of nomination papers is April 25 and the date of counting is May 15. This means that the model code of conduct is applicable in the state now with immediate effect. It is the only big state where the Congress is in power after losing a string of assembly elections to the saffron party over the last few years. Former BJP Karnataka chief Prahlad Joshi, also present at the conference, sought to nudge him by naming Siddharamaiah, the Congress chief minister in the state, and Shah promptly corrected himself. The last state elections were held in the first week of May in 2013. "On a pilot basis, VVPAT from one polling station in each assembly constituency will be randomly selected to count VVPAT paper slips for verification of the result obtained from the control unit", Rawat said. The Election Commission said they "will look into leaks" on dates.
