In Karnataka, Cong doesn’t need any special strategy for victory, claims Siddu

From Our Special Correspondent

Bengaluru, Dec 8: Congress Opposition leader in the Assembly and former chief minister Siddaramaiah on Thursday claimed that the Congress party does not need any special strategy and will be able to win easily in the assembly polls.

Speaking to media persons on the results of the Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat Assembly elections, the former chief minister said there was no surprise in BJP’s victory in Gujarat. However, the Aam Aadmi Party turned out to be the spoiler by snatching Congress votes, which affected its performance and also helped the ruling BJP.

He, however, said Himachal Pradesh proved that the Congress cannot be easily written off and has given a tough fight to the ruling BJP. “My information is that the Congress party will emerge victorious,” he said pointing out that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s AAP failed miserably.

Siddaramaiah made it clear that the assembly poll result in any State is unlikely to create much of an impact in another State. If the election results in one State is an indicator of the situation in other States, he asked why Delhi civic poll results had little impact in Himachal Pradesh or help AAP in Gujarat.

“In Karnataka, the situation is much different than in Gujarat. There is widespread corruption in the state and people are fed up with the BJP rule. Besides, the Congress has a very strong base and organisation,” he said.

Siddaramaiah said there was a strong anti-incumbency mood against the BJP government in Himachal Pradesh and the chances of Congress victory were very bright. Kejiwal’s AAP spent heavily in Himachal Pradesh and it is suspected that BJP financed AAP to cut into Congress votes.

“The Congress party is very strong in Karnataka and AAP is non-existent to split the Congress votes. At best, the BJP might strike a deal with JD(S) to undercut Congress. But that will not work as people know JD(S), which has been in the electoral fray since 1999,” he said claiming that there is a strong anti-incumbency trend against Bommai regime and it will benefit Congress.

    Sorry , but with the current Congress leaders of the DK and Karnataka. Also with AAP blossoming , its going to be very tough for Congress to come 2nd. JDS too has preferred to side with BJP when the situation arises. So a coalition too is perhaps ruled out.

    Dear Sidduji In the interest of Congress Party and its followers, please do not cut cakes for NEXT CM. You have efficiently ruled the state. Help other youngsters to take up this responsibility so that the corruption that is there in the state can be erased and poor people are employed, youngsters find new jobs in Govt Department. Sad to see, when this grand old party is just showing signs of winning, the Senior Leaders like you want the cake?? It is time for you to rest like JDS chief.

    Congress in Karnataka have not yet understood that JDS and AAP are their competitors and vote share goes to them. Muslims today stopped trusting congress but others.

    His attitude needs correction. Siddu thinks that people are still having knowledge of 70s. Today all know what is what. Other fellow DKSi is another arrogant fellow, does not treat well cong workers.....

    Yesss.....In Karnataka, Congress strategy is Siddu and Siddu only. Karnataka politics is diseased with various ego clashes across parties. DKShi-SIddu, Yeddy-Eshwarappa, HDK-Revanna. And Kejriwal is hoping to cash in on people full on nasha in the meanwhile, again a wishful gamble.
