MYSURU: The Congress took out a massive roadshow in Gundlupet on the final day of campaigning.
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah along with Congress candidate Geetha Mahadeva Prasad, KPCC president G Parameshwara and Ministers M B Patil and D K Shivakumar passed through prominent streets with an appeal to support their candidate in the polls.
Siddaramaiah criticised Mysore MP Prathap Simha and other BJP men for making “baseless” charges against Geetha.
He said there is an “overwhelming” response to the Congress. He also refuted BJP’s charge of misuse of government machinery to win the polls.
Meanwhile, BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa also visited villages both in Nanjangud and Gundlupet assembly constituencies. Yeddyurappa called upon party workers to be more vigilant to stop Congressmen from distributing money to lure voters. He asked them to catch them red-handed and inform the election officers.
MP Shobha Karandalaje alleged that a few Congress leaders wanted to create trouble during the BJP campaign.
“We were worried about sensitive villages. People have shown love and respect to leaders visiting for campaigning,” she said. She charged that the authorities have failed to stop poll code violations and irregularities.
