Speaking to reporters on Sunday, Siddaramaiah said, “Being the Prime Minister of this country, he should be aware that there is a model code of conduct in force in Karnataka. How can he come to the state for a government event and the election commission shouldn’t allow the visit. If the EC grants permission, it will be violating model code of conduct.”

According to news agency ANI, prime minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate an event on completion of 50 years of the Tiger Project. He is also expected to go on a safari at Bandipur Tiger Reserve in Karnataka.

The assembly elections in Karnataka will be held on May 10 and the results will be announced on May 13. All 224 constituencies will go to polls in a single phase and the election battle will be majorly fought between the Congress, BJP and the Janata Dal (Secular) party.
