Vijayapura: With only two days left for the City Corporation elections, the parties have intensified their campaign by inviting prominent leaders of their parties to seek the votes.
While the Congress is using local leaders such as Karnataka Pradesh Congress Campaign Committee President M. B. Patil and Congress Leader Abdul Hameed Mushrif to campaign for the party candidates, the other parties too are not staying behind in inviting their prominent leaders.
Like the Congress, the BJP is also depending on local leaders for campaigning. MLA Basanagouda Patil Yatnal, Former MLA Appu Pattanshetty and other party leaders are campaigning for the candidates.
AIMIM, the regional party which has fielded its candidates in the election, invited its most popular leader, Asaduddin Owaisi to campaign for their candidates.
The JD (S) invited its State President and Former Union Minister C. M. Ibrahim to campaign for the party candidates. The party’s lone MLA Devanand Chavan is also campaigning for the party candidates.
The most intense campaigning is being conducted by AAP as the party started the campaign before any other party launched it.
The party held press conferences on multiple occasions where the State Leader Prithvi Reddy and another leader Mukhyamantri Chandru attended the programme.
They continue to hold various events regularly in the City as part of their campaign.
The independent candidates who have no support from any prominent leaders are campaigning on their own with the help of some local boys.
Meanwhile, the District Administration has imposed Section 144 around 100-metre areas of all the polling booths from the morning of Wednesday October 26 till the end of polling on October 28. As per the order, five or more people cannot gather in the restricted areas.
People have been restricted from placing any banner or poster in the restricted areas till the end of the voting. No campaigning is allowed near the restricted areas.
