Karnataka state elections around the corner, all eyes are on the Siddaramaiah factor, as it is expected to play a crucial role in determining the election outcome. The former Chief Minister and Congress leader led the party to victory in the 2013 elections, but could not repeat the feat in 2018. Nonetheless, he remains a charismatic leader with a loyal following, and his endorsement can make or break a candidate’s fortunes. Political parties, including the Congress and the Janata Dal (Secular), are keen to have him on board, while the BJP is watching his moves closely. The election campaign is heating up, and the Siddaramaiah factor is set to be one of the most significant aspects of the polls.
