Karnataka Assembly elections 2018: A pre-poll survey ahead of the Karnataka Assembly elections 2018 has predicted a Congress win, while the BJP would finish second if the polls were to be held today. The survey was carried out by C Fore between July 19 and August 10. It predicted Congress would win around 120-132 seats, while BJP will improve its tally from the last time to 60-72. JD(S) is expected to get 24-30 seats. The survey predicts that Congress is likely to get a vote share of around 43%, BJP will get around 32% votes and JD(S) around 17.

According to India Today, C Fore claimed to have interviewed 24,676 voters from 165 assembly constituencies and used systematic random sampling methodology to select respondents. The survey also revealed that Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s Anna Bhagya scheme was most popular among the respondents, followed by Mid day meal scheme. However, shortage of drinking water, poor roads, unemployment and poor garbage disposal issue affect most of the residents.

A PTI report last month said the Congress was conducting a survey to collect data to help it select candidates and decide strategy for the upcoming assembly polls, which is also being seen as a pre-test of the General Elections 2019. Karnataka Congress chief had then said the party was conducting divisional surveys and after these are complete, it will organise conferences in all the districts to inform people about the government’s achievements.

However, BJP chief Amit Shah last week promised a BJP win in Karnataka. During a three-day visit to the state, Shah said, “I have come here with a firm will to bring the BJP back to power in the state. I can sense the mood of the people to give our party an opportunity again to serve them.”

Shah said BJP would try to win 150 out of 225 assembly seats to form the next government in the state. ” “It will be a BJP government this time to free the people from the corrupt and incompetent Congress government in the state. We will make Karnataka also a Congress-free state, as we did in other states,” PTI reported him as saying.

The next Karnataka Assembly elections are expected to be held in early 2018.

      Congress needs to win to checkmate the regressive BJP government.Me wondersost TV channels are painting a rosy picture. But as far as Tamilnadu, karnataka, kerals and Andhra is concerned, the BJP will get a drubbing. One wonders how this repressive BJP will get its numbers.More the BJP it is the Medias bluff that must be called off. India Today can change to BJP Today, and Times Now can be renamed BJP now, why pretend to dispense news.

                Finally Some good news to cherish,...Hope this trend continues through out india. We need to get rid of the fascist forces to take india forward. Congress always had a vision and no one can deny its achievements on other hands there is no single pro people programme which BJP had started ever. Compare to BJP, Congress has vast and immensely potential leaders in the party.

                  Typical survey by a newspaper group which in recent times has come out with several erroneous reports. Every one knows that the results will come out exactly opposite. Typical news trading which is so prevalent nowadays

                    3 years is too long to continue to keep people in good homour by a political party and it's conviction that jumlebaj is a main factor that will keep people in your favour to keep on giving ou votes is nothing but mirage which should be shed by the ruling party at the centre. Only sloganeering and self praise of programmes declaring them as a great work done be Govt without any work actually seen to be bene ing the masses. will keep them in foolish paradise and again and again drum beating by even their president is not even convincing their own party cadres and leaders to go to public confidently to fetch votes. 110 days tour of the country for the purpose will not be fruitful unless public really feels some concrete output of installing them to power post.
