In the run-up to the Karnataka Assembly elections, BJP general secretary B L Santhosh has expressed confidence that his party is on course to win a majority. Speaking on a Twitter Space session, Santhosh said that the Congress campaign peaked early, while the BJP’s campaign is hitting the right chord at the right time.
Santhosh also described the Bajrang Dal as a “nation-building force” and criticized the Congress for equating it with the banned Islamic outfit PFI. He blamed the PFI for killing several of his party’s workers and said that Hinduism and terrorism cannot go together. Santhosh’s comments came amid a fierce campaign by the BJP, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, to corner the Congress over the issue.
The Karnataka Assembly elections are scheduled to be held in 2023, and both the BJP and the Congress have been actively campaigning in the state. The BJP is hoping to retain power in Karnataka, while the Congress is hoping to make a comeback.
Santhosh’s comments about the Bajrang Dal are likely to spark controversy, as the outfit has been accused of indulging in communal violence in the past. The Congress has been targeting the BJP over the issue, and has accused the saffron party of promoting communalism.
Santhosh’s comments about Hinduism and terrorism are also likely to be controversial, as the BJP has been accused of promoting a Hindutva agenda. The party has been accused of targeting minorities, and of promoting a divisive agenda.
The BJP’s campaign in Karnataka has been led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has addressed several rallies in the state. The party has been highlighting its achievements in the state, and has been targeting the Congress over its alleged failures.
The Congress, on the other hand, has been highlighting the BJP’s failures, and has been accusing the saffron party of promoting a divisive agenda. The party has been focusing on issues such as unemployment, inflation, and the economy.
The Karnataka Assembly elections are expected to be closely contested, with both the BJP and the Congress hoping to emerge victorious. The outcome of the elections will have implications for national politics, as Karnataka is a key state in south India.
The BJP currently holds power in Karnataka, and is hoping to retain it. The Congress, on the other hand, is hoping to make a comeback after being out of power in the state for several years.
