Bengaluru: A Congress leader on Tuesday deplored that the party neglected to plan for the Karnataka Assembly election and educate the general population about the government’s welfare plans. 


Congress state unit Vice President B.K. Chandrashekar said “The party and its leaders, both in Bengaluru and Delhi, ought to have woken up considerably before and arranged much better for the election to instruct the general population of the state about the Congress government’s welfare plans,”

“The great financial arrangements of the government weren’t imparted successfully to the general population of Karnataka.” 

Chandrashekar said the party’s set-up was a purpose behind its defeat in the state election that took place on Saturday. The votes were counted on Tuesday. 

“We ought to have strategized no less than two-three years ahead of the elections by setting up a research organization so as to counter (Prime Minister) Narendra Modi’s appeal,” Chandrashekar said. 


“The Congress flopped in imparting to the general population of the state that the political issues of communalism and nationalism of the BJP must be rejected. The Congress now needs a structural reconstruction”, he included.
