Congress in Karnataka has initated a process to identify party candidates in all the Lok Sabha segments in the state, where it is targetting to win 20-25 seats.

At a general body meeting of the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee, KPCC President G Parameshwara said observers have also been appointed in each of the 28 constituencies.
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, said while the party would strive to win all the 28 seats, it must win 20-25 (compared to a mere six in the previous polls in 2009).

AICC General Secretary Digvijay Singh, in charge of party affairs in the state said coordination committee would be constituted soon with the mandate to resolve contentious issues between the party and the Government in Karntaka.

He said he would like such committees to be formed at district levels as well.
Singh, a former Madhya Pradesh Chief Ministers, advised the Chief Minister to create a cell to look into the election promises, setting a road-map with deadlines to implement all those assurances.

He noted that the party's vote-share had gone up by a mere 1.5 per cent in the Assembly elections, adding, "we must go up to 40 per cent (in the Lok Sabha elections)".
