Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee president D K Shivakumar said on Friday said that Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has sought reports to know the reasons for the party’s failure in the Lok Sabha elections in Karnataka.

Speaking to reporters after Rahul Gandhi held a meeting with ministers in the city, Shivakumar said that the Congress leader has sought separate reports from Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, AICC secretary Randeep Singh Surjewala and himself.

“We will be holding meetings separately after a week in this regard after due consultations with leaders and ministers. We will submit our respective reports to party high command,” he said.

Shivakumar said Congress knew from the beginning that JD(S) and BJP vote banks are complementary to each other as their core vote bank comprised anti-Congress votes.

But what the party did not expect was smooth transfer of votes to each other in the old Mysore region

“We expected that they may not be able to transfer votes. Further, fielding in a non-controversial leader - like in Bangalore Rural - was a good strategy of the BJP. There are many strategies they got right and Congress did not,” he explained.

He said Rahul Gandhi asked the newly elected MPs to remain in touch with their voters and that the must take part in discussions highlighting the failures of central government.
