Mangaluru, Jan 12: Karnataka BJP chief Nalin Kumar Kateel said that the Congress leaders are engaging in levelling allegations unable to digest the victory of BJP-supported candidates in the gram panchayat elections.
He said that the Congress is facing the question of its existence. To remain active in media, the leaders are engaging in issuing statements daily.
The BJP-backed candidates have won in 3,714 gram panchayats in Karnataka. A total of 45,715 candidates have won the election. The BJP is preparing for the upcoming zilla panchayat and taluk panchayat elections by organising 'Jana Sevaka Samavesh' till January 13. Through the convention, the BJP will chalk out strategies for the upcoming elections.
Mr Kateel said that it is left to the discretion of the Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa to decide on the cabinet expansion. “Even I want six-time MLA S Angara to get the ministerial berth. However, the final decision will be taken by the Chief Minister. The ministerial berth will be given after considering the social and geographical area,” he said.
