As Karnataka state assembly election is approaching, the battle for the throne of the state has intensified more. Both BJP and Congress have enormously tried to cripple each other in order to seek the affection of the electorate of the state. And as it is the season of assembly elections in Karnataka, the state has just become the new battle ground for both the parties. Where on one hand, PM Modi asked in his speech to the public of Karnataka, “What has Congress done for the farmers of Karnataka?” and on the other hand addressing the media, Congress Party President Rahul Gandhi reminded people of Amit Shah’s involvements in cases that were still fresh until a few days ago.
Where PM tried to sow the seeds of doubts in the minds of people, Gandhi tried to sow the seeds of questions. “Amit Shah has been accused of murder. The Supreme Court themselves have mentioned the (justice) Loya case. So, I don’t think Amit Shah has a lot of credibility. Let’s look into his background. Let’s see what he is responsible for. Let’s see how he does politics. Also, don’t forget he is a murder accused. This is fundamental. The President of the BJP is a murder accused. That is the truth. The party that talks about honesty and decency has a person who has been accused of murder as its president,” (Quoted by ANI) said Gandhi referring to the Sohrabuddin Sheikh encounter case.

Amit Shah was reportedly accused of masterminding the extrajudicial killing of Sohrabuddin Sheikh, his wife and also a criminal associate. It was allegedly supposed that the killing was organized by a senior police officer at the behest of then Home Minister, Amit Shah. But, Amit Shah was later discharged by a special court due to lack of evidence in 2014.
It was like the Congress President had done his homework well. As he next fired just the right question at PM Modi questioning his choice of BJP ministerial candidate for upcoming Karnataka assembly elections. Aiming at B.S Yeddyurappa he said, “we are repeatedly asking the prime minister why he has chosen a corrupt person, who has been in jail, as his party’s CM candidate, also why Prime Minister Modi has given eight tickets to the Reddy brothers, who have stolen rupees 35,000 crores of Karnataka’s people money? Prime minister should answer these questions,”
It seems like the Prime Minister’s own decisions are now been thrown right at his face by the opposition. Rahul Gandhi is seen putting up his game now more than he has done ever before. But, amidst of all these verbal fights, the most important question of all rests in the baffled minds of the people of Karnataka, whom to choose, a party who is handing over the future of the state to “corrupt criminal candidates” or a party who has done ‘what’ for the farmers?
