New Delhi, May 25 (ANI): The Congress on Sunday blamed the three-way split in votes for its failure to win substantially in the three-phased Karnataka State Assembly elections.
Union Minister and AICC General Secretary in-charge of Karnataka Prithviraj Chavan said the party might not be able to reach the half way mark, and attributed it to the Janata Dal Secular doing well in a limited way.
Asked whether it was possible for the Congress to align with the JD(S), Chavan said these decisions would be taken by the Congress Working Committee and the party high command.
He also blamed the delayed delimitation and defective voters’ list as factors responsible for the Congress’ bad performance. (ANI)
