The victory of the Congress in Karnataka is significant as it comes in the wake of poor performance of the party in States such as Gujarat, Minister for Infrastructure and Investment Ganta Srinivasa Rao has said.

Addressing the media here on Wednesday, he said the victory for the party in an important State such as Karnataka was worth celebrating. A part of the credit for the victory also goes to party leaders from the State, including Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy and APCC president Botcha Satyanarayana, who campaigned in Karnataka, he said, and pointed out that Union Tourism Minister K. Chiranjeevi had extensively campaigned for the elections.

During the campaign, Mr. Chiranjeevi had predicted that the Congress would win between 120 and 130 seats and form the government on its own, Mr. Srinivasa Rao recalled. He expressed the hope that the Congress would repeat its performance in the State.

He scotched rumours that there were differences between the Ministers and said that the Ministers had met the APCC president on the subject of formation of mandal committees.

The Congress was strongly placed in the district and was likely to get majority seats in the elections, he said. The people in the State were supporting Mr. Kiran Kumar Reddy and would vote for the party in the next elections, he added.

Bheemunipatnam MLA M. Srinivas and Gajuwaka MLA C. Venkataramaiah were present.
