The 40-day-long campaign for the Karnataka polls has come to an end, with the crucial assembly elections scheduled for May 10. The BJP hopes to hold onto the only southern state they control, while Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) are challenging them for power. The election is critical for all three parties, with BJP trying to establish a southern gateway and retain its position as a significant party in the southern region. Meanwhile, Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) are trying to regain power. Karnataka has been a bellwether state for Indian politics, and this election will serve as an invaluable indicator of the political mood in the country.
