Karnataka election 2023 LIVE updates: As the Karnataka election dates are nearing, electoral politics is heating up in the state. On Wednesday, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) released its second list of 23 candidates for the May 10 224-seat Karnataka assembly elections. The list does not include Jagadish Shettar who met BJP president JP Nadda earlier in the day to stake his claim to contest from his Hubli-Dharwad Central constituency. The party has already named its candidate from the seat. Amid the BJP’s push for new faces, the party is losing veteran politicians. After being denied a ticket, senior party leader and former Deputy Chief Minister Laxman Savadi on Wednesday resigned from all post.
