With the state of Karnataka set to go to polls, preparations are on in full swing.
So much so that as part of transparency, the vehicles on poll duty will be fitted with Global Positioning System (GPS) devices.
This is to ensure free and fair election.
It need be mentioned that the election will be held in a single phase in Karnataka.
The counting for the elections is scheduled for April 15.
The two main rival parties in the state are Bharatiya Janata Party and the Congress.
With poll date nearing, Prime Minister Modi will address the first rally at Kolar and move on to Raichur, Bellari, Belagavi, Chamarajanagar, Udupi, Jamakhandi, Bengaluru, Kalaburgi, Kalaburgi, Hubballi and Mangaluru.
The BJP also released its list of candidates for the May 12 poll on Monday.
The BJP has been slammed for excluding Muslim candidates from the list and instead allotting tickets to tainted candidates.
Meanwhile, the Congress also released a list of its candidates and chief minister Siddaramaiah will contest the 2018 election from Chamundeshwari.>
