Election commission forms committee to probe Karnataka poll dates leak

Election commission forms committee to probe Karnataka poll dates leak

Did the @BJP4India IT cell actually announce the Election Dates in Karnataka even before the Election Commission did? The EC also said that April 24 will be the last date to file nominations and April 27 will be the last date for withdrawal of candidature. Though, the reports in tweets mentioned the Polling date as 12th May, 2018 and Counting date as 18th May, 2018, it was clarified that actual schedule of Karnataka Assembly Elections has the Counting date as 15th May, 2018. All electronic voting machines will be linked to Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) machines, he said.

However, Congress, which is now in power in the state, has not missed the chance to train its gun on BJP ahead of the state polls.

"Karnataka will vote on 12May2018, counting done on 18May2018", Malviya tweeted at around 11:08 today morning, even as the Election Commission was yet to announce officially the Karnataka Election Schedule.

"There has been BJP govt in Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh for the last 15 years and farmer suicide numbers in these states have been very low", Amit Shah said.

The mix up took place during the press conference the BJP conducted in Davanagere after the Election Commission announced the dates of the Karnataka Assembly Elections.

Middle East Tensions Support Crude Oil Price at $70 Per Barrel
Singapore-based brokerage Phillip Futures said that "surging production levels persist" in the US. Lower crude prices have played a part as to why not earlier.

Not willing to squander a juicy free hit, Congress leaders and the party's IT cell had a field day with Shah's comment. He said, however, paid news will also be monitored by the Election Commission.

The JD (S) will suffer the most; the party will see a 13-seat drop and a negative swing of 4 per cent because of the exodus of its Muslim and Dalit votes to the Congress.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi and BJP national chief Amit Shah have already kicked off campaigning in Karnataka's battleground constituencies.

Karnataka assembly elections will be held on how many polling stations?

Following a fallout with the BJP, former chief minister BS Yeddyurappa has contested separately through his own party - Karnataka Janata Paksha. "Farmer suicides have reduced after BJP came to power in the state", he said.
