He lost the seat in the 2013 elections to the Congress.

Politics around Basaveshwara, the founder of Lingayat sect who has emerged as a key factor in the run-up to the May 12 elections in Karnataka, peaked on the occasion of the birth anniversary of the 12th century saint Wednesday, with leaders from the BJP and the Congress involved in public displays of reverence for the poet-saint.

Leader of Opposition in the Karnataka Legislative Council Eshwarappa also filed his papers from Shivamogga in the presence of former chief minister Jagadish Shettar.

"Accordingly, the Commission has notified that the hours of poll for the elections in entire state will be 7.00 AM to 6.00 PM, i.e. extending it by one hour in the afternoon", an EC order said.

Shah further highlighted that booth level workers and Shakti Kendra chiefs lead party to victory. They believe that such moves if the party leadership takes to win elections would erode the party's ideological base. "Can they really represent Karnataka's best interests in Parliament?".

Party state president B.S.Yeddyurappa, state leaders and Union ministers were present at the meeting. The party has been finding it hard to identify winnable candidates for Yeshwanthpur, Gandhinagar, Chamarajpet, BTM Layout, Sarvagnagar and Pulakeshinagar constituencies.

The top three richest candidates also belong to the Congress. Priyakarishna from Govindrajanagar tops the list with assets worth Rs 910 crore, followed by N Nagaraju, the candidate from Hosakote who has declared his worth to be Rs 470 crore.

On the second day of his tour, the BJP president will meet party workers and leaders from across the state.

Meanwhile, BS Yeddyurappa, will contest from Shikaripura assembly constituency, while veteran state leaders Jagadish Shettar and KS Eswarappa will contest from Hubli Dharwad Central and Shimoga Assembly seats, respectively. "Today Anantkumar Hegde was forced to cancel his press conference as it was found that the truck that crashed into his escort vehicle was owned by the brother of a BJP office-bearer", AICC Secretary Madhu Goud Yaskhi said.

Shah is expected to visit the homes of two intellectuals in Bengaluru to seek their views on the party's manifesto for the upcoming assembly polls.
