Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai urged people to vote for the "development of the State" on Wednesday.
Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai urged people to vote for the “development of the State” on Wednesday. He also expressed satisfaction with the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) election campaign, which includes Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s public rallies and roadshows.
“I am very happy with the way our party conducted the campaign and the way people have reacted. I appeal to people to come and vote for the development of Karnataka,” Bommai said while talking to the reporters here.
Bommai who is contesting as a BJP candidate from the Shiggaon assembly constituency offered prayers at a Hanuman temple in Hubbali as voting continues across the State.
Notably, the high-voltage campaign for the May 10 Assembly elections in Karnataka ended on Monday, with all three major political parties in the state – the BJP, Congress, and JD(S) – having their final chance to woo voters.
However, voting for 224 assembly constituencies in Karnataka is currently underway, with 2,615 candidates in the running.
The Karnataka assembly elections will be held tomorrow from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., according to the Election Commission of India. The majority threshold for forming a government is 113 seats.
Polling is scheduled at 58,545 polling places, including auxiliary polling places.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah also urged people in Karnataka to come out in large numbers to vote for “good governance, development and prosperity in the state”.
“On voting day, I urge our sisters and brothers of Karnataka to come out in large numbers to vote for good governance, development and prosperity in the state. Your one vote can ensure a pro-people and pro-progress govt that will continue to take the state to newer heights,” Shah said in a tweet.
BJP national President JP Nadda also tweeted, “I appeal to the voters of Karnataka to participate in the festival of democracy in large numbers. This election is crucial in deciding the future of Karnataka. I request everyone to bring to power a government that will provide continuity to the progress of the state and is committed to fulfilling the aspirations of the people.”
