Bangalore, May 21 (UNI) Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) President Mallikarjuna Kharge today claimed the Congress would come back to power with absolute majority as the people wanted a stable and functional government in the state.
Talking to UNI here, Mr Kharge claimed the Congress was far ahead than any other party in the earlier two phases of the elections.
Claiming the party had done well in the previous two phases, he said it would get between 80 and 85 seats out of a total of 155 seats which went to the elections.
Asserting the party had strong base in the Mumbai-Karnataka Area and two districts of Hyderabad-Karnataka Region, which go to polls tomorrow in the third and final phase of the elections, Mr Kharge expressed confidence the Congress would form the next government on its own strength.
To a question, Mr Kharge said the Congress had not projected any leader as its Chief Ministerial candidate before the elections as it was not the tradition of the party.
''The party high command will take a decision on the issue and everybody will bound by it,'' he added.
