Karnataka expats in Saudi Arabia hail poll results

Dubai, May 11, 2013 (IANS):

Expatriates in Saudi Arabia have hailed the results in the recently concluded assembly elections in the Indian state of Karnataka.

The Congress party had stormed back to power in the state, replacing the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

In 2008, the BJP had managed to come to power in a south Indian state for the first time by winning the Karnataka assembly elections.

Hailing the results, Abdul Majeed Neha and Rasheed Kolatra, president and general secretary of the Jeddah chapter of Congress-affiliated Overseas Indian Cultural Congress (OICC) said that the people of Karnataka have voted out corrupt and communal governments from power, the Arab News reported.


According to Naser Khurseed, a representative of the Karnataka NRI Forum, the people of the state had shown good sense by ousting communal politics from the state.

A large number of expatriates from Karnataka in Saudi Arabia come from places like Bamgalore, Mangalore, Gulbarga and Bidar.
