It may be a Sunday today, but that will not deter the candidates who would continue their campaign in full swing.

As the elections in the state are inching closer, the political parties are leaving no stones unturned to woo the voters.

A few days back, Congress president Rahul Gandhi also visited the poll-bound state and held rallies.

Karnataka will go to polls on May 12 to elect representatives to the 225-member state assembly. The results will be out on May 15.

It is now official that a total of 2,655 candidates will contest the elections in Karnataka. The Congress has released its manifesto and called it the Mann ki Baat of Karnataka. The BJP is yet to release its manifesto.
