With ten days to go for the first phase of polling in the state, Congress today appointed a 40-member campaign committee in Karnataka under the chairmanship of former minister G Parameshwara.

Among others, Parameshwara will be assisted by former opposition leader M Mallikarjun Kharge, who is contesting from Gulbarga (SC) Lok Sabha constituency, and former Deputy Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.

State unit working president D K Shivakumar released the list of members of the campaign committee at a press conference here.
‘The UPA government’s achievements and the failures of the BJP government in Karnataka will be highlighted before the electorate,´ Parameshwara said.
Criticising the state government, he alleged that of the total plan allocation of about Rs 26,000 crore earmarked for 2008-09, the B S Yeddyurappa government has released only Rs 11,000 crore as on January 9, thus failing to release funds for plan programmes
