The BJP had on April 8 declared its first list of 72 nominees that included its chief ministerial candidate B S Yeddyurappa, and senior leaders K S Eshwarappa and Jagadish Shettar. The Congress had on Sunday released its list of 218 candidates.

In the 2013, assmebly polls, the BJP was reduced to 40 seats while the Congress had won 122 seats. JD(S) led by Deve Gowda had also won 40 seats. Yeddyurappa had floated his own party, Karnataka Janata Paksha, in the last elections after he was removed as chief minister by the BJP over graft charges.

The Lingayat leader, however, merged his party with the BJP in 2014. He is contesting from Shikaripura in the upcoming polls. The BJP is making an all-out bid to oust the Congress from power in the southern state.

Meanwhile, BJP general secretary in-charge of Karnataka, Muralidhar Rao said the party’s manifesto would have “path-breaking” declarations, and hinted at it having ideas regarding Kannada and culture.

He also indicated that there might be a mention about the party’s ideas with regard to not subjecting mutts and temples to any kind of government control or “intimidation.”

“There is people’s involvement in manifesto preparation and definitely on four, five issues we will have path-breaking declarations from the party when we come out (with the manifesto),” Rao said.
