The Congress will conclude with a massive rally on April 3, he added.
Answering a question, Mr Varadharajan said the BJP in Karnataka was unnecessarily creating tension for both Tamil Nadu and Karnataka on the Hoganekkal issue. Stating that the Centre should interfere to find a remedy to the issue of sharing river water between the States, he said due to non-involvement of the Centre the Cauvery issue could not be solved even after 17 years.
He said his party was opposed to frequent transfers of IAS and IPS officers.
