About Karnataka Elections

Karnataka is a state that belongs to the southern part of India. This was established in the year 1956 on 1st of November. Since then every year on this day, the people of this state have marked this day as Rajyotsava and celebrate throughout the state with pomp and splendor. There are 30 districts within this state. The capital city of Karnataka is Bangalore and is also the largest city of this state. Bangalore is also known as Silicon City. The official language of this state is Kannada and the literacy level is 75.6%. The population of Karnataka is more than 61,000,000. Elections of this state are conducted as per the Constitution of India. The assembly of this state makes the laws regarding the matters of conducting of the local body elections in a unilateral way. But if there are any changes to be made by the state legislature with respect to the conducting of state level elections it needs to be approved by the Parliament of our country. The state legislature may be dismissed by the Parliament of our country with respect to the provisions as per the provisions of the Article 356 of the Indian Constitution and the rule of the President may be imposed. Politics in the state are mainly dominated by the three main parties The Indian National Congress, the Janta Dal (Secular) and the Bhartiya Janata Party. Till 1983, leaders of Indian National Congress became Chief Ministers of the state. Mysore was home to first three chief ministers of the state.

Administrative structure

As most of the Indian states, the administrative structure of the state is determined by the Constitution of 1950.

Jharkhand has a bicameral legislature in which the Legislative Council (Vidhan Parishad) is the upper house and the Legislative Assembly (Vidhan Sabha) is the lower house.
The judiciary consists of a High Court and other district and subordinate courts. The state is divided into districts, which are grouped into four divisions. Each district is headed by a deputy commissioner.

Issues of the state

Regional Imbalance: The state is faced with a problem of lopsided economic development. Development takes place only in cities like Bangalore and Mysore as half the state revenue is being generated from these two cities. As a result, the development of other cities is being neglected.

Corruption, power crisis, water scarcity and unemployment are other issues that affect the life of people in Karnataka.

The Karnataka polls' results ended the speculations about the results in the Karnatka state and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was declared the winner who bagged 17 seats. Nine seat were gone to Indian National Congress (INC) and two to Janata Dal(Secular). Established in the year 1956, Karnataka has been a politically active state since its inception. It has 28 parliamentary constituencies and there are several political parties which lead in the state. Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Indian National Congress (INC) and Janata Dal (Secular) are few of them. Karnataka is headed by a Chief Minister and K. Siddaramaiah is the present CM of the state under the ruling party, INC. The state attended the 2014 Lok Sabha polls which decided the fate of prominent leaders like former Prime Minister H.D. Deve Gowda, former Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa and co founder of Infosys, Nandan Nilekani. During the past elections in 2009 too, BJP won the maximum seats in the Lok Sabha elections. The exit polls showed mixed opinions regarding the number of seats for BJP and Congress but BJP ruled it by grabbing maximum seats.

Karnataka is a state in the southern part of India. Karnataka was established in the year 1956 on 1st of November.
