Congress’s Success in Telangana Elections a Boon for Karnataka Unit

In a significant development, the recent election victory in Telangana has not only secured success for the Congress but also validated the party’s strategy, particularly in Karnataka. Karnataka leaders, notably Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and Deputy Chief Minister DK Shivakumar, actively participated in the Telangana campaign, emphasizing the success of the five poll promises.

The Karnataka Congress strategically showcased the implementation of promised welfare schemes in their home state, including subsidised electricity, financial assistance to women heads of families, free bus travel for women, and free rice distribution. This strategy was believed to have influenced the outcomes in Telangana, as the Telangana Congress also promised similar welfare initiatives, countering the Bharat Rashtra Samithi’s (BRS) array of schemes.

Key Karnataka leaders, such as Dinesh Gundu Rao, Priyank Kharge, KH Muniyappa, Krishna Byre Gowda, Eshwara Khandre, MC Sudhakar, Sharan Prakash Patil, and B Nagendra actively participated in election campaigns on the ground in Telangana. Their focus was on showcasing the successful implementation of the five poll promises in Karnataka.

Despite allegations from the BRS about the Congress’s failure in implementing poll promises, the Congress confidently asserted that it fulfilled its commitments, gaining the trust of voters. A Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) official, requesting anonymity, stated, “Even though the BRS attacked us claiming the programs were a failure, people have understood that the Congress delivers on its promise.”

To counter the Congress’s influence, the BRS had dispatched senior leaders to Karnataka before the elections to highlight issues faced by farmers and other communities in the state. However, the positive resonance of Congress’s successful implementation of welfare programs prevailed among voters in Telangana.

Deputy Chief Minister DK Shivakumar emphasized that the Telangana result was a victory for the people, not just the Congress party. He mentioned that voters in Telangana sought a change, and leaders from various states, including Karnataka, played a crucial role in the Congress’s success.

Reacting to the Telangana results, BJP Karnataka President BY Vijayendra expressed a nationwide wave in favor of BJP. He stated, “People want PM Modi to become the prime minister again. The BJP will get a majority in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.”

Former Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai viewed the assembly polls’ results in the four states as indicators of the probable outcome of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. He emphasized that the results served as both a positive sign for the Congress strategy and a warning for the Karnataka Congress unit, shaping perceptions ahead of the crucial national elections.
