Shivakumar says they will review the Lok Sabha setback in Karnataka and rectify the mistakes

Bengaluru, July 11 (IANS) Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister and state Congress chief DK Shivakumar on Thursday said the party will review where it went wrong in the Lok Sabha elections in the state, rectify the mistakes and prepare to take on the BJP-JD-S alliance in the coming days.

His comments came while answering questions from the media at the state party headquarters here.

Asked about the AICC Inquiry Committee meeting, he said, “From having just one Lok Sabha seat, we have now won nine constituencies. We were hoping to win 14-15 seats, but it did not happen. The AICC committee will review today where we went wrong. This process is going on not only in Karnataka but across the country. I will also submit reports from four divisions. Along with the Chief Minister and our leaders, I will analyse and review the findings.”

“We have fielded the best candidates in this Lok Sabha election. All the elections were held in tandem. However, we need to identify what factors changed the minds of the people. We had already predicted that the BJP-JD-S alliance would be effective. We know that they will remain united in the future as well. Let them remain united. We will prepare accordingly to counter them,” he added.

Later, while participating in the oath-taking ceremony of newly elected member Basanagouda Badarli, who was elected to the Legislative Council seat vacated by BJP MP Jagadish Shettar, Shivakumar asked party workers and leaders to keep aside differences and work for the upcoming Assembly elections in 2028.

“We have discussed and exerted a lot of pressure, under the leadership of AICC president Mallikarjun Kharge, to give this post to Badarli, who has been working for the party for many years. He should become a great asset for the party. I appeal to all workers to coordinate and keep aside local differences and focus on the goal of 2028 elections. We all must work together to win more seats than we have now. The number of seats we win will determine their future and the future of the party. All must work together for the 2028 elections,” he stressed.
