AICC Chairperson Sonia Gandhi will launch the party’s campaign for the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls by addressing a public meeting in Gulbarga on February 1. KPCC president G Parameshwara told reporters  that she will inaugurate the `1,200 crore hi-tech ESI Hospital in Gulbarga and address a rally. This is a gift of the Centre to the people of Gulbarga, he added.

KPCC had recommended  Poojary’s name and Harsha Moily, son of Union Minister M Veerappa Moily, was included in the list in the last minute. AICC Vice-president Rahul Gandhi has started a system of selecting candidates through party workers in at least 15 Lok Sabha constituencies across the country.  Dakshina Kannada and Bangalore North are among them, he added.

Replying to a question, Parameshwara clarified that only after Harsha Moily              applied for a ticket to contest from the constituency, his name came up for discussions. 

Sons, daughters or son-in-laws of Congress leaders can submit applications seeking ticket, but the party high command will take a final call, he stated.
