As soon as news of the list broke out, Congress announced that the list was fake.

"Compared to BJP, we will have less rebellion".

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has already announced its first list of candidates for the Karnataka polls, which is to be held on May 12. One member is a representative of the Anglo-Indian community nominated by the Governor of Karnataka.

"If Siddaramaiah contests from north Karnataka, the party will be strengthened and Congress will win 50 seats".
