The internecine feud among congress cadres, pulling their rugs under their feet, inefficient back door entry CM Narayaswamy, his making lies of in front of public and alleged irregularities of the central funds. He had time only to fight and sit in dharnas in Rajbhavan, moving courts against the lieutenant governor Kiron Bedi. BJP faced the poll with a development agenda.
