BANGALORE: The Congress is ready to face Assembly polls in the state, which is expected to be held in advance, and will form the next government, said All India Congress Committee (AICC) secretary and Karnataka party affairs observer V Hanumantha Rao.
Addressing the Media here on Sunday, he charged the BJP government of failing to provide good governance and address the problems being faced by the people.
“Development in the state has come to a standstill following differences between the BJP leaders. While the present Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda claims that he would complete his term in office, his predecessor B S Yeddyurappa continuously asserts that he would be back in the saddle,” he said.
‘Leaders to Tour State’
Sensing early polls to the state assembly, Rao added, party leaders are touring the state to motivate the workers at the grassroots level. Our party is now on the alert mode throughout Karnataka. People will definitely seek a change of regime and we have a good chance of bouncing back to power, he asserted.
Congress leaders will tour the northern districts of Koppal, Gadag and Bellary in the next week to sensitise the public over the failure of the state government.
On the shortcomings of the state government, he added that several schemes envisaged to empower the poor and the downtrodden have been stalled.
