Rahul Gandhi asked me to contest, " Siddaramaiah said.

The party submitted a memorandum alleging that the ruling Congress in Karnataka is resorting to all sorts of malpractices to rig the assembly elections.

"The Modi government has become the benefactor, protector, defender of the Bellary Gang (Reddy brothers) for denuding Kannadigas of their rich natural resources through its puppet CBI", Congress media in-charge Randeep Singh Surjewala told reporters here. "But in this lurks the risky trap the Karnataka BJP can walk into for the general elections in 2019".
