Gulbarga, Nov 26 (UNI) With the dissolution of Karnataka Assembly becoming imminent, the Congress party would launch an election campaign from Chidradurga on December 6, leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Assembly N Dharam Singh said today.

Talking to newspersons here, he said a Symposium would be held on November 29 in Bangalore to chalk out strategy for the election campaign.

Mr Singh said in view of the ensuing poll, all the District Committees would be reshuffled in December as an effort to gear up its cadre.

The Congress leader charged the BJP's attempts to make withdrawal of support by the Janata Dal(S) as a public issue and said it was an internal matter of both the parties and there was no justification in taking it to the people.

He criticised BJP leader B S Yeddyurappa for attempting to form the Government in a hasty manner without solving their internal differences with the JD(S) and led the State into a political uncertainty. The BJP should not make political capital out of the issue, he added.

Accusing the BJP policies during the tenure of the coalition Government, Mr Singh alleged that the party had allocated Rs 220 crore for the renovation of temples, which was higher than funds allocated to panchayats for developmental activities.

The former Chief Minister denied the BJP's claim that it had earned a sympathy of the people in the wake of the betrayal twice by the JD(S).
