KPCC President B Janardhana Poojary today said Congress would not support NDA's proposed amendment to People's Represenatation Act prohibiting foreign origin persons from occupying high posts in the country.

Congress need not learn about patriotism and nationalism from BJP and Sangh Parivar leaders, he told a press conference here.

Poojary attacked NDA leaders for raking up Congress President Sonia Gandhi's foreign origin during the elections.

He charged the Centre with showing step-motherly treatment towards Karnataka over the issue of grant of assistance to tackle severe drought situation.

Poojary said Sonia would campaign in Mangalore and Hassan on April 20.
