It looks like Rahul Gandhi the Congress chief is confident of winning Karnataka. This will give a lot of steam to the party for the coming 2019 polls. Now the AP CM Chandrababu has also decided to support JDs in Karnataka and earlier KCR the Telangana CM has met the JDS leaders and said that he would campaign here.
For Congress, Chiranjeevi is also getting ready. The whole plot is to take the Telugu people away from the BJP. Not only that the political parties have started funding the Congress here to trounce the BJP.
The very fact that Modi the PM is not running the campaign here shows that he has already sensed the mood of the people. Modi is going to address around 15 rallies here from May first according to the sources. That means the BJP is not moving ahead with full throttles. The poll surveys also show that it could be BJP or Congress. No one is poised for a majority.
The JDS will become the kingmaker. The very fact that BJP is using Mining baron Gali Janardhan Reddy for campaigning shows it all. Galis men are in the fray and they have pumped in enough money for this prestigious fight in Karnataka.
At the same time, PM Modi’s graph is also coming down, his image has taken a beating and it has to be seen if he can really help the BJP in winning Karnataka.
This is an acid test for both Rahul and Modi in the coming days.
