KPCC President Dr G Parameshwara said that BJP National President Amit Shah's assurance to party workers saying 'Do what I say and I will bring you victory', had given raise to suspicion.

Speaking to reporters in Kalaburagi on Thursday, state Congress chief alleged that BJP had plotted to misuse electronic voting machines (EVMs) and to win the election.

"We will appeal to the State Election Commission not to use EVMs in the upcoming polls," Parameshwara added.

Mahadayi dispute

On questions regarding the Mahadayi river water sharing dispute, Parameshwara said that Karnataka was waiting for Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar to write to his counterpart Siddaramaiah.

"Post which, we will bear upon the Goa Congress not to oppose the sharing of the river water," he added. He criticised Parrikar for doing a flip-flop on the issue.

The Goa government, which was inclined to share water, did a complete reversal recently stating that it would contest the issue before the Mahadayi River Water Sharing Tribunal.
