BENGALURU: Health and Family Welfare Minister Dinesh Gundu Rao asserted that the results of the Lok Sabha elections will be in favour of the Congress party after voting concluded for 14 out of 28 seats in the state on Friday. He also said that the grand old party will win more than 20 seats in the state.

“In Karnataka, there is a chance to win more than 20 seats (for Congress). I believe the result will be in our favour after the first voting in the state. This time, we hope to win in the Bengaluru city. Generally, the voter turnout is less than 60 per cent in Bengaluru. Voting is necessary for democracy”, Dinesh Gundu Rao said.
