Lobbies have always had a say in Karnataka politics. The scenario has however changed with caste being the most dominating factor in an election.
Karnataka has always been under the control of lobbies, which often influence the elections.
There was a time when these lobbies played a great role in shaping elections and all political parties have at one point in time been under the influence of these lobbies.
The influence has waned over the years, with caste becoming a deciding factor in Karnataka. It is often said that the party that manages to rope in the votes of the Lingayats and Vokkaligas go on to win the elections.
