PM Modi will contest from south Bengaluru seat? Congress list gives speculation to air

There have been speculations since the last few days that Prime Minister Narendra Modi may contest the election from the southern Bengaluru seat of BJP since 1991 this time. This is considered a Congress anti seat. If left 1989, then since 1977, non-Congress MPs have been elected here.

After long waiting for the Congress, Congress announced its candidates on 18 seats in Karnataka on Saturday night. Congress is contesting on 20 Lok Sabha seats, while the remaining eight seats have gone to the coalition partner JDS.

The thing to consider in this list of Congress candidates is that the party has not announced candidates in South Bengaluru and Dharwad seats. Voting will take place in the third phase of Dharwad on April 23. In such a situation, there is still time left for the party to decide on its candidate, but in the second phase of the South Bengaluru seat, the voting is to be held on April 18 and the last date for filing nomination is March 26.

In fact, there has been speculation since last few days that Prime Minister Narendra Modi can contest the election from the southern Bengaluru seat of BJP since 1991 this time. According to the local Congress leaders, he feared that BJP could create a shocking candidate in this seat. Therefore, the party high command has decided the weight and watch.

South Bengaluru seat is considered anti-Congress. If left 1989, then since 1977, non-Congress MPs have been elected here. The BJP first captured this seat in 1991. Then the famous economist and the late Professor Venkatgiri Gowda waved the flag of the saffron party here. From 1996 till last year, the late Union Minister Anant Kumar was representing this seat. He won six consecutive wins here. At the same time this time, sitting MLA from the BJP, Tadaswini Anant Kumar, who is sitting on the ticket, has opened an election office right away.

Even if Karnataka BJP leaders claim that they have no information to fight against PM Modi here, but according to sources related to the city police, they have been instructed to keep the city's security system strict on Monday. According to sources, after this order, it is believed that a big leader can come here to file his post on that day.

At the same time, state level leaders of the Congress say that if PM Modi is standing from south Bengal, he will also give a ticket to a strong leader here. Unlike two former Chief Ministers of the state, Kangal Hanumantaiya and R. Gundu Rao, the non-Congress candidates have always won in the Bangalore South seat. In such a situation, if PM Modi contestes from here, it will prove to be energizing for the BJP in the Deccan.
