New Delhi: 
Gripped by election fever, the southern state of Karnataka is set to see four public meetings by Prime Minister Narendra Modi today, a day after the BJP released its election manifesto underling loan waiver for farmers, among other poll promises. Congress Chief Rahul Gandhi, however, hit back at the BJP saying the manifesto was "poorly crafted" and had nothing new to offer. 
    
Leaders from both the BJP and Congress have engaged into a war of words in the run up to the polling day on May 12. This week, PM Modi has attacked Congress, currently ruling the state, on several instances over condition of farmers, safety of women, and corruption in the state.  He even said that the "garden city of Bengaluru" had turned into a "garbage city" prompting a reaction from Rahul Gandhi. Mr Gandhi called PM "a natural liar" and said he had insulted Bengaluru by giving it the label. 
 

Here are the highlights of the Karnataka assembly elections 2018.:
