Sriramulu, a confidant of tainted mining baron and owner of Obulapuram Mining Company (OMC) Janardhana Reddy, is contesting from two constituencies Molakalmuru and Badami in the May 12 assembly polls.

Polling will be held on Saturday and counting will take place on 15th of this month.

AHINDA - the Kannada acronym for alpasankhyataru (minorities), Hindulidavaru (backward classes) and Dalitaru (Dalits) - was Urs' brainchild and Siddaramaiah has been successful in renewing it and emerging as a chief minister with a social coalition beyond his party's own traditional base. But Siddaramaiah is banking on his "Bhagya" welfare schemes to see him through.

"The video that has surfaced on today show how Sriramulu and middlemen Captain Reddy, Balan, Swamiji Rajnish and CJI Balakrishnan's son-in-law Sreenijan discuss bribe deals in order to get a favourable judgment from the SC in the Obalipuram case", Karnataka Congress Working President Dinesh Gundu Rao said.

The videos also appeared on a local channel in Karnataka. True, Rahul successfully won three parliamentary elections from Rae Bareily, a traditional bastion of the Congress in Uttar Pradesh state, and was second-in-command after his mother Sonia Gandhi in the party for five years before he stepped into her shoes on December 16 last year. Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee, one of the prime movers of the opposition front along with TRS supreme K Chandrasekhara Rao, had recently made it clear that Congress should accept a supportive role in the proposed front and not insist on leading it. The Janata Dal (Secular) which had been a kingmaker in the past is in the fray in 200 constituencies with its alliance partner Bahujan Samaj Party contesting for 18 seats.

The BJP president claimed that Siddaramaiah is going to lose from both the seats and expressed confidence that the BJP will win at least 130 seats in the 224-member Assembly and there will be no need to take any party's support.

With the Siddaramaiah government steeped in corruption and the BJP inspiring little hope with a tainted Yeddyurappa at its head, corruption was not a major issue in this election.

The Congress' main challenger BJP has spared no effort to ensure that history is repeated.
