"Rahul Gandhi is very happy with the functioning of the government".

Parameshwara was in the national capital to attend a meeting called by Gandhi to review the party's preparedness and discuss its strategy with senior leaders in the run-up to the Karnataka polls. "We are confident that the Congress party will win with a comfortable majority in Karnataka", he said.

Mir's statement has not gone down well with the party's ally Bharatiya Janata Party. The PDP leader, Aijaz Ahmad Mir, further termed it as a "collective failure".

According to Siddaramaiah, the Congress had not only honoured all the promises it had made in its manifesto for the previous state polls, but "even some of the programmes not in the manifesto were implemented". I have only said they spread hatred in the name of Hindutva.

After joining the Congress, Mr. Vijayshankar said he would also brief the media to expose certain leaders of the BJP, with which he was associated for more than two decades. "That will not work".

"They (BJP) are following (Hindutva) sans humanity".

"The BJP is raising irrelevant issues in Karnataka. Being a Hindu myself, I follow it with humanity", Siddaramaiah said.
