BJP, Congress and Janata Dal (Secular)  are running a fierce campaign to woo the electorate. And joining the high-pitched battle are two Hyderabadi stars, AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi and former Indian cricket captain Mohammed Azharuddin , who are canvassing for JD(S) and Congress candidates respectively.

Owaisi has already addressed two public meetings in Bengaluru. Hyderabad MP Owaisi, who has been delivering fiery speeches against Congress and BJP, challenged Congress president Rahul Gandhi for an open debate for ‘five minutes’ on whether the Congress has upheld the Constitution. “Get Prime Minister Narendra Modi also along with you for the debate,” he said at a public meeting in Bengaluru. He said he favoured a non-Congress and non-BJP government coming to power in Karnataka and that’s why he was supporting JD(S). 

Owaisi, who has chosen not to field Majlis candidates in Karnataka, instead is seeking votes in support of JD(S) whose leader HD Kumaraswamy has already thanked the former for his support. Owaisi is set to address rallies in Belagavi on Tuesday. He will visit Talikota, Davangere and Hassan on Wednesday. “Majlis chief Owaisi’s tour will galvanise the voters,” Latif Khan Pathan, AIMIM general secretary, said and alleged that some Congress leaders even tried to stop Owaisi from campaigning for the JD(S).
