Congress sure to win 2023 Karnataka polls: D K Shivakumar


Bengaluru, Jun 8 (IANS): Congress' Karnataka unit President D.K. Shivakumar on Tuesday expressed confidence that his party would triumph in the 2023 Assembly elections.

"Everyone in the party is working in tandem and giving his/her best to ensure our victory in the Assembly elections," he said at a party event here.

Denying any rift in the party, Shivakumar said joining together was the beginning, thinking together was progress and working together was the key to success.

"As one person fighting alone cannot succeed, party's state leaders and cadres should work in coordination to win in the next state elections. As people are fed up with the BJP government in the state, they have served an ultimatum to the ruling party," he said.

Noting that the party's victory in the April 17 by-election in the Maski (reserved) assembly seat sent a strong message to the ruling BJP, Shivakumar also said that its candidate (Satish Jarkiholi) lost in the Belagavi Lok Sabha by-election by a slender margin of 5,240 votes to BJP's Mangala.

Death of Minister of State for Railways Suresh Angadi in September 2020 due to Covid, necessitated the Belagavi bypoll on April 17 and its result was declared on May 2.

The opposition party, however, failed to retain the Basavakalyan assembly seat in Bidar district in the same by-election, as BJP's nominee Sharanu Salagar wrested it by 20,629 votes, defeating Congress candidate Mala, widow of former party legislator B. Narayanrao, whose death in September 2020 caused the by-poll.

The Congress, however, retained the Maski (ST) assembly seat with its candidate Basanagouda Turuvihal defeating BJP's Pratapgouda Patil by a margin of 30,606 votes.

Shivakumar also said: "We have formed dedicated teams in all the 31 districts across the state and 224 Assembly seats to win people's confidence with a vaccination drive for inoculating maximum number of citizens and helping Covid-affected families across the state."

Advising party leaders and cadres not to lose heart if defeated in elections, he advised them to serve people, which will pay off.

The party felicitated Turuvihal after he took oath as lawmaker in the Speaker's office at Vidhana Soudha

    Gone are the days when Congress can get majority on its own. They tried to split people on religious and caste lines and ended up spitting in the air and receiving it back. In Karnataka as far as JDS is there, its though for congress to comeback. BJP is anytime best friend to choose for JDS and vice versa. BJP does not have strong base in JDS areas whereas Congress has. As far as JDS grows, Congress will weaken which is what BJP wants. . If someone can make a Single party Govt in Karnataka or India , its only BJP. You can love it or hate it or don't want to accept it, but that's the ground truth ..Period.

    BJP never came to power on its own even last assembly elections also.. They have formed govt through backdoor method because they had amassed black money from GST and demonetization. in the coming assembly elections bacchali party will be routed like anything..Except mangagala ooru and Udupi no other districts they will win.. of course, hassan, madya and mysuru will be won by JDS.. Our bande Shivakumar will be the next CM..Jai Congress.

    BJP won the highest number of seats in the last assembly elections. Money collected from GST is not called black money . All politicians irrespective of parties have gained something from demonetization. That's why we don't hear about any personal level accusations between the ruling and opposition parties. In amassing black money DKS is not lagging behind Reddy brothers. Today he too has the capacity to buy a big bunch of MLAs. So Congress winning the next elections won't be a surprise.
