Debate: Can Modi wave help BJP reclaim Karnataka?
With just over two weeks left for the Karnataka assembly polls, BJP is unleashing its most potent weapon: Narendra Modi. BJP leaders who are still recovering from the humiliating defeat in the 2013 elections hope their so-far-uninspiring campaign will get an adrenaline rush once Prime Minister Modi, who is known for his oratory skills hits the poll-trail. But the big question is: Will Modi's magic wand really work in Karnataka?
A victory in Karnataka will be crucial for both the Congress and the BJP. The state is the last big bastion of the Congress and the BJP, which reigns in 19 states, is looking to increase its tally. Can Modi wave help BJP reclaim Karnataka?
