Cong has 'excellent' chances of coming to power in Ktka: Moily

Bangalore, Apr 12, 2013 (PTI)

Congress has "excellent" chances of coming to power after the next month's Karnataka Assembly elections as the BJP rule is marked by maladministration and corruption, Union Minister M Veerappa Moily said today.

Moily told reporters that there was "no question" of BJP returning to power.
To repeated BJP's taunts to Congress to name its Chief Ministerial candidate, Moily said his party did not believe in projecting anyone as the practice was that the MLAs would be consulted on the issue.

"They (BJP) announce their captain of and on. That is why they collapsed," Moily said.
Ruling out himself from the race of chief ministership in the event of Congress being voted to power, Moily said his role would be to ensure the party's victory.


"I am not an aspirant for chief ministership," he said.
On the heartburn among a section of ticket aspirants in Congress, Moily said there was a "problem of plenty" in his party. "But we look at it as an advantage which BJP and JDS do not have," he said, adding that there were no rebels.

To a query, Moily said there was no question of post- electoral alignment either with JDS led by former Prime Minister H D Devegowda or Karnataka Janatha Paksha headed by former Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa, as Congress was confident of doing well on its own.
