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.

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)".
