BENGALURU (BENGALURU): The opposition Congress PayCM campaign has not only become a hot topic, indicating its viability, but it has also embarrassed and rattled the opposition Congress Party, which is now beginning to act, particularly as assembly elections are looming.On the surface, the BJP has used bluster, insisting that Congress members are no saints when it comes to corruption and that the opposition party has yet to back up its allegations with concrete evidence.It has also retaliated with police intervention.Activists of corruption are old and obstructive, according to Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai and his allies, and they can no longer influence voters.Some also openly acknowledged that graft has dominated the political landscape, and that it can severely jeopardize the saffron parties' chances in assembly elections, which are set to take place in April-May next year.According to the state BJP brass, the organisation must act quickly to minimize the consequences by rolling up its sleeves and initiating a counterattack.To combat the BJP's stand, Congress is trying to establish a narrative around mismanagement.The PayCM issue has caught on like a blaze in a house. The Bharat Jodo Yatra, which will take place in Karnataka on September 30, is also expected to take place.The story is similar to the 2013 elections, in which Congress came to power by accusing the BJP of bribery, mainly due to illicit mining and land denotation.The United States is aiming to recreate the magic.Karnataka has become a national scandal for the BJP, according to Professor Ravindra Reshme, a political analyst. Prime Minister Narendra Modi continues to harp on three evils, jathivad (caste), parivarvad (dynasty), and bhrashtachar (corruption), which are all eating into the heart of our nation, but his own party unit in Karnataka has become his Achilles heel.However, some claim that there is no way to predict whether or not corruption will sway voters in Karnataka.When PM Modi called the Siddaramaiah government 10% Sarkar during his campaigning for the 2018 assembly elections, it resonated with voters and became a big issue, according to Brijesh Kalappa, AAP spokesperson and Supreme Court advocate.Now the tables are turned. Only AAP can bring about change.
