    My govt's singular focus was to bring back glory to Karnataka, says Siddaramaiah

    By oneindia staff

    Bengaluru, May 11: In a few hours from now the voters will decide the fate of the incumbent Congress government in poll-bound Karnataka. The election to the 224-member Karnataka Assembly is scheduled on Saturday (May 12). The results of the elections will be declared on May 15.

    Will chief minister Siddaramaiah be back to govern Karnataka once again? Or the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will come to power in the southern state? Now, it is only a matter of a few days when all the queries will be answered after the declaration of the poll results. Till then, we can all speculate about the outcome of the election results and add more suspense to the Karnataka "drama".


    Hours ahead of the polling, CM Siddaramaiah decided to "look back" at the last five years of his tenure. Tweeting about his regime, the Congress CM wrote, "Looking back at last 5 yrs, my govt's singular focus was to bring glory back to Karnataka. We have come a long way from being the most corrupt state in 2010 to become the investment capital of India by 2018. Yet there is so much more we have to do. #CongressForNavaKarnataka."

    In his tweet, he claimed that his government worked to "bring back glory to the state". The Congress CM also took a dig at the previous BJP regime which saw the multi-billion mining scam. In the same tweet, Siddaramaiah added that it's because of his government, Karnataka has become the investment capital of India by 2018.

    Although the Congress has not named any chief ministerial candidate for Saturday's state elections, the grand old party says that Siddaramaiah is the obvious choice for the top job if it wins the elections.

    The incumbent CM led a powerful campaign of the Congress against the BJP which is trying its best to win the elections. In fact, in the last few days of the campaign, the Karnataka elections turned into a contest between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and CM Siddaramaiah.

    While the BJP tried its best to make the state elections look like a fight between PM Modi and Congress president Rahul Gandhi, but Siddaramaiah stood firm and emerged as the main face of the entire election process.
