“We are seeking opinion from people from different walks of life to prepare a roadmap to defeat the BJP in Karnataka,” Congress general secretary in charge of Karnataka Madhusudan Mistry said.

The state Congress has been authorised to tap intelligentsia and seek their views on different issues.

Mistry said the party is ready for elections, even if they are held now.

As part of the preparations, the Congress has already launched a massive door-to-door campaign, called “Congress Nadige-Janara Balike (Congress at your doorsteps) programme across Karnataka to “expose the corruption” in the state.

As part of the campaign, the party is also planning a meeting of the full Karnataka Congress committee and district committees at Mangalore, considered to be a stronghold of the BJP and RSS, next month.

The party has asked all its union ministers from the state to spend “substantial time” there to “sustain the momentum and heat that has been generated” against the Yeddyurrapa government.
