Karnataka BJP Dreams Shattered By Telugu People

Postado Mai 17, 2018

Dimapur, May 15 (MExN): Following the directives from Central BJP, an emergency get-together was organised at BJP Dimapur Office, Dimapur with the initiative of the Bharatiya Janata Legislative Party leader (BLP) and Deputy Chief Minister of Nagaland, Y. Patton.

The voting pattern in regions dominated by Telugu people, like Hyderabad Karnataka, Bengaluru City, Bellary, Raichur, Chickballapur and Kolar seems to suggest the trend.

When contacted, BJP spokesman here said it was too early for Mr Shah to take a plunge in poll campaign in MP since the assembly elections in the state were still six months away.

At a public rally addressed by Chandrababu Naidu in Tirupati, the TDP chief had asked Telegu-speaking people in Karnataka not to cast their votes in support of the BJP as the ruling party at the Centre had betrayed the people of their home state.

Like all the State polls since he assumed power in New Delhi, Prime Minister Modi had helmed the BJP's adrenaline-charged campaign in Karnataka, despite the party having declared B S Yeddyurappa its chief ministerial candidate, while Congress President Rahul Gandhi had spearheaded the campaign of his party. In Meghalaya, the BJP won two seats and the Congress 21 but the BJP formed the government after a post-poll alliance. "See what can happen in Karnataka in a day". But it is also a fact that regional parties gain sizeable share of seats during Goa assembly elections.

In today's Karnataka Assembly election results of 46 constituencies where there are more than 50,000 Telugu voters in each, the outcome was a sweet revenge.

"The wave of hope created by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has now been transformed into a wave of faith and the people have expressed it through their mandate", he told PTI. "The stakes are different in both states", he added.
