PayCM campaign: The political conflict between the ruling and opposition parties in Karnataka is intensifying. Karnataka assembly elections will be held next year.

BJP counter attack against Congress poster campaign. It released posters with pictures of former CM Siddaramaiah and KPCC president DK Shivakumar with QR codes. The Cure Code states that these two leaders should be expelled from the state. In this sequence, the controversy of QR code posters has become more advanced. It has taken the war of words between BJP and Congress to a peak. Arrest of Congress workers led to an argument between BJP and Congress MLAs in both houses. The Congress on Wednesday launched a poster campaign against the ruling BJP government by putting up posters of Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai in public places along Racecourse Road, where the Chief Minister resides. Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee President DK Shivakumar visited the High Ground Police Station on Thursday morning regarding the arrest of Naidu and other party workers.

On the other hand, former chief minister and Congress leader Siddaramaiah said on Thursday that they should intensify their campaign against the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the party workers will not remain silent on police arrests. Naidu arrested for murder? Siddaramaiah asked. He said that the poster campaign of the PCM is part of the campaign against the BJP. Law Minister Madhuswamy said in the Assembly that the use of the image in the QR code poster has caused pain. In the Assembly, Law Minister Madhuswamy said he was offended by the PACM’s posters against the Chief Minister, and BJP MLA Rajeev asked, “On what basis has the Chief Minister’s picture been included in the QR code poster?” He asked. In the council, Congress MLAs- BK Hariprasad and Prakash Rathore displayed the PACM posters.

Meanwhile, HD Kumaraswamy demanded the resignation of Karnataka Minister Aswatnarayana. Kumaraswamy accused him of corruption. It is also possible to write a letter to Prime Minister Modi seeking an inquiry. Local media reports claim that this could turn into a major political controversy.
