MP Shobha Karandlaje took a dig at Congress for handing over Chikkamagaluru Lok Sabha constituency (which had given political rebirth to former prime minister Indira Gandhi) to its coalition partner JD(S).
Speaking to reporters here, she said: "JD(S) has no candidates to field in Udupi-Chikkamagalur. They are planning to field Congress leaders. Whoever contests, the seat will be won by BJP. BJP will win at least 22 seats in Karnataka," she added.
Shoba declared that BJP would win with a large margin and Pramod Madhwaraj could not prevent BJP from marching towards victory.
