BJP leader BL Santhosh said Yogendra Yadav cooked up the survey to “ please his masters”.

The BJP on Friday dismissed the findings of a pre-poll survey in Karnataka which predicted that Congress is headed for a "comfortable majority" with 134-140 seats with a 10% vote lead over BJP which will bag 57-65 seats. The pre-poll survey was done by Eedina, a Kannada media. Swaraj India's Yogendra Yadav shared some analysis of the findings of the pre-poll survey and tweeted the same inviting wrath from BJP leaders.

BJP's BL Santhosh called the survey "cooked up" as he tweeted: "It's really astonishing that he (Yogendra Yadav) finds time amidst his padayatras and agitations to cook up surveys to please his masters...!!!".

 

Union minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar called the survey bogus attacking Yogendra Yadav to which Yadav said the "successful minister" did not have the time to notice that it was not his poll.

Intense politicking is on ahead of the Karnataka Assembly Election 2023 as both BJP and the Congress have turned the heat on each other. Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge compared PM Modi with a snake and later clarified that his comment was for the BJP and not for any individual. BJP Karnataka MLA called Sonia Gandhi 'Vishkanya' in reply. Congress has now urged the Election Commission to ban Union home minister Amit Shah and Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath from campaigning in Karnataka.
