Yesterday, the BJP's central election committee, which comprises Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party chief Amit Shah, had met in the national capital to finalise the second list of party's candidates.
The saffron party, which is striving to return to power in Karnataka after a gap of five years, has announced Yeddyurappa as its chief ministerial candidate, with a target of winning 150 out of 224 assembly seats.
The Congress, too, had announced its first list of 218 candidates on Sunday for the state assembly polls.
Meanwhile, Janata Dal Secular has already announced candidates for 126 constituencies. The party is in alliance with Bahujan Samaj Party for Karnataka polls.
With polling day inching closer, Karnataka has turned into a political battleground with both the ruling Congress and the opposition BJP extensively campaigning across the state.
The southern state goes to polls on May 12 to elect its representatives and results will be out on May 15.
