No confusion in ticket distribution for remaining four seats, we will win 20 seats: Siddaramaiah

Mysuru, March 23 (IANS) Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Sunday said that there is no confusion in the Congress regarding the tickets for the remaining four Lok Sabha seats in the state.

Interacting with reporters here, he said: “The candidates would be chosen for the remaining four constituencies. There is no confusion about the Chamarajanagar seat as speculated. The party is going to win 20 seats this time.”

“We won’t blatantly lie like BJP that all 28 seats will be won. The alliance between the BJP and the JD-S will help the Congress. The party will take it as a matter of prestige to register a victory in all 28 seats,” Siddaramaiah added.

Asked about whether the guarantees will help the party, he said that his government has kept its word.

“The assurances were fulfilled as soon as the government came to power. For guarantees, the government has spent Rs 36,000 crore and it is going to spend Rs 52,009 crore in the next year. The Congress is facing the election against this background and people are going to support us like how they did it in the Assembly election,” Siddaramaiah said.
