Chennai, Mar 7 (UNI) Senior BJP Leader Venkaiah Naidu today claimed that the re-entry of Congress leader and former chief minister S M Krishna into active politics would not make any difference in the Karnataka elections.
Addressing a press conference here, Mr Naidu said the ''Congress had lost its face to go to the people and that is why the Congress wants the polls in Karnataka to be delayed.'' ''The reasons like completion of delimitation of constituencies cited by that party are not authentic,'' he said and added that in these days of computerisation the works could be completed in a short time.
''Krishna may come back, but the Congress cannot come to power,'' the BJP leader said and added, ''this will not help the Congress in anyway.'' Asked if the BJP would revive their alliance with the AIADMK in Tamil Nadu, he said the party would finalise alliances only after the notification of the elections.
''Still there is time. We will wait for the Left's moves, if the UPA government goes ahead and signs the nuclear deal,'' Mr Naidu asserted.
He further said the BJP had already begun its preparations for the elections like holding conventions in parliamentary constituencies and zonal political meetings in different parts of the country, where elections were due.
