ULB polls results show Congress wave in Karnataka: KPCC Working President R Dhruvanarayana

2 min read

Mysuru: Following the overwhelming performance of Congress by winning 501 seats in urban local body elections in the State, KPCC working president R Dhruvanarayana termed it as the beginning of Congress wave again.

The wave has begun across the State mainly in north Karnataka, where the BJP top leaders have suffered a severe setback, said Dhruvanarayana also a former Chamarajanagar MP.

Dhruvanarayana told media persons on Friday “Congress has decimated BJP top leaders base in North Karnataka, with the results proving the might. Similarly we have made inroads into JDS belt in Southern Karnataka.”

The tall claims made by BJP leaders including former chief minister B S Yediyurappa have been proven false . In all 501 congress candidates have won in the elections indicating a sure Congress wave in Karnataka, said Dhruvanarayana.

KPCC has organised 10-day padayatra to exert pressure on the government to build reservoir across Cauvery river in Mekedatu. The padayatra will start from January 9 and conclude on January 19.

As a main opposition party we are embarking on the movement as it has been two years since both the state and central governments who claimed to be “double engine government” lacked pace, Dhruvanarayana said.

Mekedatu balancing reservoir is much essential to Karnataka and Cauvery basin. The government of then CM Siddaramaiah had even submitted a detailed project report (DPR). Congress has invited leaders from all the sectors like from film industry, religious heads and Kannada organisations to take part in the padayatra, Dhruvanarayana said.

The statements of former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy especially after the dismal performance in ULB electione show his frustration.

City Congress President R Murthy, rural committee president B J Vijay Kumar,
Congress leaders H V Venkatesh, Mahesh, others were present.
