Bangalore, Dec 10 (UNI) Claiming a Congress wave was sweeping Karnataka, the party today said the 'Janandholana' campaign, launched last week, had received tremendous response.
Party spokesman and Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) General Secretary V S Ugrappa told newsmen here the programme had drawn huge crowds in the districts of Chitradurga, Shimoga and Davangere, indicating the party would meet with good success at the hustings.
Mr Ugrappa claimed the 'Janandholana' programmes, organised to create awareness about the misdeeds of the previous JD(S)-BJP Coalition Government in the state, evoked tremendous response.
The party state leaders, including KPCC President Mallikarjuna Kharge, Former Chief Minister N Dharam Singh and others had addressed public meetings.
The next round of the programme would be held in Bidar, Raichur, Koppal and Gulbarga Districts.
Referring to the recent visit of former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda to Tiptur town which had witnessed communal clashes recently, Mr Ugrappa asked why Mr Gowda did not make it a point to visit Mangalore where large scale communal riots had taken place when his son was the Chief Minister of the state.
''Mr Gowda's visit to Tiptur has unmasked his double standards and opportunistic way of politics,'' he alleged.
