Karnataka Assembly Elections 2013: Congress to make a mark in reserved constituencies? Zee Media Bureau

Bangalore: The results of the upcoming Karnataka Assembly elections on May 5 will reveal how the Congress will fare the 51 reserved constituencies of the state.

The 2008 elections rang an alarm bell for the Congress party when the BJP won majority of seats in reserved constituencies - 22 out of 36 SC seats and 7 ST seats, as per a newspaper report.

At that time, Mallikharjun M Kharge was the state party president and the party won a mere 80 seats in the 224 member legislative Assembly. Proving to be a tough contender for Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP) whose votes were restricted to 2.47 percent, Congress won 34.67 percent of the votes.

The chances of being the chief minister will increase for the Dalit leader if the party fares well in the reserved constituencies.

In 2008, the Congress focussed on the candidates from the right sect in the constituencies, as per reports. According to several state Congress leaders, similar problem is reportedly being faced by the party in the upcoming polls as well.

Congress won in the recent election since BSP did not contest and ELEPHANT symbol not allotted to any candidate. Now with the support of SDPI and former Chairman Dr.Dwaraknath of Backward Class Commission and Trans Sex candidate in Gandhinagar where no political party gave seat for them, it is going to be a major winner with ever rising prices of essential commodities, water, electricity scarecity and social boycot of SC/STs in many places. BSP will distribute wealth of the state equally among all sections of the society including SC/ST/OBC/minorities/ poor upper castes as enshrined in the Constitution for peace, welfare and happiness of the entire people.The media must paly a vital role in this regard.
