Now the Congress party is claiming that PM Modi is influencing the voters in Karnataka with his Nepal Visit: Congress
Another Congress leader Ashok Gehlot, went a step ahead and claimed that PM Modi held his Nepal visit to influence the voters in the Karnataka polls. “As there is model code of conduct in Karnataka, PM Modi planned to pray at temples in Nepal instead, just to influence voters. This is not a good trend for democracy. Why did he only choose today as the day?” said Ashok Gehlot.

Congress thinks that PM Modi visiting the temples will influence the Hindu voters towards them.
The Congress's Siddaramaiah, the Chief Minister of Karnataka, said the PM's temple visits proved that the party is nervous. "It clearly shows that Modi came to know that BJP would be defeated. That is why he visited temples. I do too, but not every day."
The results of what is widely predicted to be a close election battle will be declared on Tuesday.
