HUBBALLI: Former Karnataka Chief Minister and Congress leader Jagadish Shettar on Sunday said the party got a boost with the campaigning of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi for the upcoming state assembly elections.

“This time, people’s blessings are with me. More people are coming to support me. So, I will win by a huge margin. Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi’s presence has definitely given us a boost,” Shettar said.

Shettar joined the Congress a day after quitting the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) after being denied a ticket for the May 10 assembly polls in the state.
Former Congress president Sonia Gandhi started campaigning for the party ahead of Karnataka assembly polls on Sunday.

Addressing an election rally in Hubballi district on Saturday, Sonia Gandhi said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was perturbed by the Rahul Gandhi-led Bharat Jodo Yatra as it was carried out against ‘those spreading hatred.’

Sonia Gandhi said that “Bharat Jodo Yatra was done against people who do only one work which is spreading hatred and the BJP got perturbed by it. Such people can never bring any development in Karnataka. BJP got perturbed by Bharat Jodo Yatra”, Sonia said.

Karnataka is crucial for Congress as it can mark its revival for the 2024 Lok Sabha election. If BJP is defeated in Karnataka, the party will not be in power in any southern state.
Karnataka will go to Assembly polls on May 10 and the counting of votes will take place on May 13. (ANI)
