The party said the returning officer's decision is "patently illegal" as it urged the commission to set it aside and reject his nomination papers.

BJP's X factor in Karnataka to meet Asia's X factor before polls 23.4.2018 General News
Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], April 23 (ANI): The opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is banking heavily on a high voltage presence by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the last leg of campaigning in the state before it goes to polls on May 12.Mr. Modi's presence is being dubbed as the X factor in this tri-cornered contest in the Karnataka assembly elections. While there is no evidence of any anti-incumbency wave against the present Congress government led by Chief Minister Siddaramiah, the confidence exhibited by former chief minister H.D.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah seems to have had his way in selection of Congress candidates for the May 12 assembly polls in Karnataka, with most party hoppers getting tickets, upsetting several seniors. With most of those who switched sides getting tickets, it is seen as consolidation of Siddaramaiah's position within the party, as party veterans like Mallikarjuna Kharge, Veerappa Moily and KPCC chief G Parameshwara were seen opposed to it, preferring long time party workers. Issuing tickets to party hoppers, including seven rebel JDS MLAs and controversial businessman of Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor project Ashok Kheny, was reported to be a thorny issue while selecting candidates, with Siddaramaiah said to be standing strongly in their favour. The chief minister is also said to have had his way in getting tickets to Anand Singh and B Nagendra in Ballari district.
