Assembly Polls Reveal Congress’ Position: CM

Balehonnur (N R Pura): Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda said that the results to the Assembly elections of five states has proved that the Congress is no longer a key political player.

On the sidelines of a function here on Tuesday, he said that this was because of the chaos of the Congress. He, however, admitted that the reception to the BJP in the polls was mixed.

The CM claimed that this will have a bearing on the Udupi-Chikmagalur bypoll, resulting in a huge victory to the BJP candidate. He refused to attribute any special reason to former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa’s visit to Delhi and asserted that the former chief minister would take part in party campaign for the Lok Sabha  byelection.
