Karnataka Assembly Polls 2018: Congress confident of victory in Karnataka, says Siddaramaiah

"We are confident that the Congress party will win with a comfortable majority in Karnataka", he said.

ANI quoted Congress Karnataka chief Dr. G. Parameshwara as saying that Rahul, during the course of his three-day visit, will address meetings, interact with various groups of intellectuals, farmers, women and students in the state. He is very happy that our our government has no anti-incumbency.

Responding to a stung BJP's social media campaign,"I am RSS, I am BJP, arrest us", Chief Minister Siddaramaiah shot back on Friday, "The police does not have to arrest them as the people will do it themselves". They are raising irrelevant issues.

Uttar Pradesh BJP has put out a hard-hitting video a day after Congress posted "Recipe for a BJP star campaigner" on Twitter.

Yogi's attack also took into crinkle Congress president Rahul Gandhi for his many temple visits for the duration of the Gujarat Assembly polls, and his public statement of being a Hindu, and accused him of using religion to generate the communal crack in the nation.

He was speaking to reporters in Mysuru, which has turned into a fortress with high security following the BJP's threats to resort to a jail bharo in protest over him calling its members and those of the RSS "Hindutva terrorists".

The meeting came in the wake of a verbal duel between Siddaramaiah and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah.

The timing of the meeting is significant, given the imminent Assembly elections in Karnataka.

Gandhi had earlier warned his party leaders from making remarks which are unwarranted and personal.
