Karnataka Assembly Elections 2023: Elections are going to be held in 9 states of the country this year. Karnataka is also included in these states. In such a situation, amidst the preparations for the elections in the state, the work of campaigning has also started picking up pace. Congress is making one promise after another to take on the ruling BJP in Karnataka. Meanwhile, former Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah has challenged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Home Minister Amit Shah.
Decision to contest from Kolar seat
Senior Congress leader and former chief minister Siddaramaiah has decided to contest from Kolar seat for the upcoming assembly elections. Claiming his victory on Saturday, Siddaramaiah challenged that he would definitely win even if PM Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah campaigned against him.
Open challenge to PM Modi, Shah
The former chief minister has decided to shift his constituency from Badami in Bagalkot district to Kolar in northern Karnataka, citing age and distance. Speaking to the media, he said, “Let BL Santosh (BJP national general secretary), JP Nadda, Prime Minister Narendra Modi or Union Home Minister Amit Shah come and campaign against me. I will definitely win from Kolar.”
Will not contest from Badami seat
Earlier this year, Siddaramaiah had made it clear that he would contest from Kolar, subject to approval by the Congress high command. Please tell that Karnataka assembly elections are possible around May. It is known that former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah represents Badami seat in Bagalkot district. On shifting the constituencies, he had earlier cited Badami’s distance from Bengaluru and his “inability” to devote more time to the people and party workers.
