The Congress party on Sunday said the Karnataka assembly elections in May would be the "first test" for the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) new team.
"This is BJP's internal matter and I won't comment on it. The 2014 general elections are far. Karnataka is the first test for the team," said Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi.
Karnataka polls are scheduled for May 5.
Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi has made a comeback in the parliamentary board of the BJP, which announced its new team that will lead the party in the next general elections.
