National president of Congress party, Rahul Gandhi, who has told the state unit of his party in no uncertain terms that they have to ensure that Congress rises to power again in the state in the upcoming assembly election, has told the leaders to pedal soft Hindutva to effectively counter strong Hindutva which has been adopted as poll plank by the BJP.

Rahul Gandhi has indicated his readiness to launch an intense campaign for the Karnataka Assembly elections, as he had done in Gujarat past year.

"Rahulji will visit Karnataka from February 10-12 for the first leg of the (poll) campaign", Parameshwara told reporters after the meeting.

Our government is not facing any anti-incumbency.

He said that his party will approach the court of law against Mr. Siddaramaiah and that he has to apologise in the court for his derogatory remarks against RSS and BJP.

According to Siddaramaiah, the Congress had not only honoured all the promises it had made in its manifesto for the previous state polls, but "even some of the programmes not in the manifesto were implemented".

Rahul met the senior leaders separately and got their views on the current political situation in the state, before meeting the entire delegation and asking them to work together.

Asked about the BJP's attack on him on Hindutva issues, Siddaramaiah said: "The BJP has no issues". "They are raising irrelevant issues". Similarly, other parties are also up to some mischief or the other.

Karandlaje also alleged that the Congress had "sheltered, financed and trained" LTTE and its leader Prabhakaran. "They will teach a lesson to organisations that try to spark unrest among them, sow seeds of communalism and hate people of another religion in the name of dharma".
