Mysore, Mar 13 (UNI) About one lakh Congress workers, including national and state leaders, are expected to attend the 'Janandolan' programme to be held here on March 16.
Talking to newspersons here today, party leader Siddaramaiah said the convention would discuss various issues including the political situation in the state, besides preparing for the state Assembly mid-term polls expected to be held in May.
A colourful procession would be organised in the city as part of the convention, he said.
In-charge of party affairs in Karnataka Prithviraj Chauhan, former Chief Ministers S M Krishna, Veerappa Moily, Dharam Singh, and KPCC President Mallikarjuna Kharge and other leaders including office-bearers of AICC and KPCC would attend the convention, he added.
Stating that the event would explain to the people about the ''failure'' and ''mismanagement'' of the JD(S)-BJP Government, he said it would also clear all ''misgivings'' of the electorate regarding the strength of Congress which alone could form a stable government.
Asked about the ''polarisation'' in the party with members being labelled as originals and migrants, Mr Siddaramaiah shot back and said all were equal in the party with no individual identities and the Congress would face the elections collectively.
AICC General Secretary Rahul Gandhi, who has undertaken a 'Discover India' tour, would hold road shows in Mysore and Chamarajanagara districts during the last week of this month. The date of the visit would be announced by state Youth Congress President Krishnebyregowda shortly.
