Predicting that Congress will have a upper hand in the DCC Bank election this year, he said that lack of co-ordination between CM and MLA is the only reason why developmental works have been lagging behind in the district. He said that BJP is seeming like a curse for the nation while JD(S) is a tumour and ruled out the rumours that Congress has joined hands with other parties.

“After the Legislative Council election, Congress has decided to keep both BJP and JD(S) at a safe distance. In BBMP election the party will contest without seeking help from any other party. At present Congress is only focusing at the forthcoming GP elections,” he said
