  • Karnataka election insights Why Lingayat turnout in Hyderabad Karnataka region will be crucial for a Congress win

Reacting to the major development, the Bharatiya Janata Party alleged that the ruling Congress was trying to rig the polls and demanded that voting in the constituency be cancelled before the Karnataka election.

Speaking on the issue, Rakesh, a BJP supporter said, "I have no connection with that flat, neither do I have no relations with that aunt (Manjula Nanjundmuri) for last 10 years". While Kumar said that strict actions will be taken against those who are found guilty, the focus shifted to the owner of the house - Manjula Nanjamari.

Javedakar, accusing the Congress of "telling lies loudly", said Manjula and Rakesh were "at loggerheads" and that he did not stay in her flat.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was addressing a public meeting in Belagavi, said that the creation of fake voter IDs was a tactic of the Congress. "Making multiple fake voter ID cards to win elections is the tactic of Congress, people should never forgive such party. Manjula is a former BJP corporator from Jalahalli", he said, citing newspaper reports. "Rakesh is my mother's nephew's son and he is not connected to the Park View apartment in anyway as it is being portrayed in the media", Sridhar said. "If voters do not vote for you, create fake voters", Javadekar said.

Talking to ANI, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra alleged the Congress' hand behind the fake voter IDs and demanded an investigation into it.

She was scheduled to conduct multiple meetings with lawmakers who could decide her fate, a White House aide said. Trump has said he favors them under certain circumstances.

Karnataka's Chief Electoral Officer Sanjiv Kumar addressed a press conference around midnight and said two trunk-loads of counterfoil strips, which appeared to be the acknowledgement slips of the form used to add names of voters, were also found along with some laptops and a printer. The flat, he said, belonged to a BJP worker.

"In next 24 hours we will get to know more facts based on which a firm decision will be taken", Kumar said. The senior party leader of BJP claim that the Muslims are very much a part of them and does not need a Muslim candidate to prove their point.

A BJP delegation comprising Union ministers Smriti Irani, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, JP Nadda and Dharmendra Pradhan will meet officials of the poll body at 6pm.

In a twist to the case of almost 10,000 voter id cards found in a flat located in the Rajarajeshwari Nagar, a photograph of alleged flat tenant Rakesh, who is son of a former BJP corporator has gone viral, raising suspicions of the role of BJP leaders in the case.
