BENGALURU: The top-down poll narrative in all three major political parties – Congress, BJP and the JD(S) – revolves around development and corruption. But reality is different: Caste emerges as a compelling factor in poll-bound Karnataka.

A preliminary data analysis of the candidates fielded by the three parties is a pointer to the fact that caste coalition concocted by the candidate will determine winnability. “Political leaders might be hurling words such as communalism, secularism and opportunism at each other, but the common thread here is that all of us are pandering to caste politics,” a senior BJP told STOI. A thought that was echoed by a Congress leader too.
