BJP chief Amit Shah's faux pas in calling Mr Yeddyurappa one of the most corrupt notwithstanding. "They were wrong about counting date so it's wrong to say they were prepared beforehand". It means BJP is dictating polling dates to Election Commission. It was in power in Karnataka from 2008 to 2013.
The survey, carried out by a poll agency named CHS, predicted 77-81 seats for Congress, 73-76 seats for BJP and 64-66 seats for the JD (S).
Political analysts said the JD (S) had the most at stake. Other major problems included an inadequate drainage system and bad roads.
The BJP had declared Yeddyaurappa as its chief ministerial candidate for the assembly poll, while the ruling Congress high command made a decision to contest under the party's collective leadership.
All-women teams will manage 450 of the total 56,696 polling booths in the Karnataka Assembly polls on May 12, an election official said on Tuesday.
March 27 (ANI): Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Tuesday took a jibe at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Amit Shah after the latter mistakenly referred their chief ministerial candidate BS Yeddyurappa's government as the "most corrupt" one.
Now, you all should remember that, before Chief Election Commission OP Rawat announced the dates of the election, they were leaked online.
The ruling Congress, which is facing a tough challenge from BJP, welcomed the election dates, asserting that the party is poll ready. But screenshots were available and instantly attracted the commission a lot of flak and questions about its credibility.

Check out this detailed information about the controversy of leaked details of Karnataka Election 2018. KPCC President G Parameshwara said in a tweet.
Karnataka will go to polls on May 12, and the results will be declared on May 15.
Responding to a question, the chief minister reiterated his allegation that JDS has joined hands with the BJP.
"Our Central Election Committee will finalise the names after the screening committee clears them on April 9-10 so that the candidates can file papers in their respective constituencies from April 17-18", Dr Parameshwar said.
About the Congress, Pani said, this would be a test to see if it can bounce back and a challenge to its national credentials.
The BJP views Karnataka as a gateway to south India where it is looking to widen its base and increase its haul of Lok Sabha seats in 2019.
"Dear Kannadigas, Our redemption from the tyrannical rule of @siddaramaiah is not far". While BJP is claiming to reclaim the power again this time, the Siddramiah government is also pretty confident about their win. Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge said alleged that there is collusion between BJP and the Election Commision and the proof is the tweet of Malviya.
