Karnataka: Rahul Gandhi takes stock of Cong performance in LS election

Bengaluru, June 7 (UNI) In a pivotal meeting held on Friday, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi conducted a comprehensive review of the party’s performance in the recent Lok Sabha election in Karnataka.

The gathering, which included the newly elected MPs and unsuccessful candidates of the party, underscored the strategic importance of understanding electoral outcomes.

The ruling Congress secured victories in nine constituencies, while the BJP clinched 17 seats and JDS, a constituent of the NDA, secured two seats in the state’s 28 Lok Sabha segments.

Rahul, in his address, stressed the need for introspection and planning to fortify the party’s position in the region.

Accompanied by Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, Deputy Chief Minister DK Shivakumar, who also leads the state unit of the party, and Congress General Secretary for Karnataka, Randeep Singh Surjewala, the former Congress President Gandhi delved into the nuances of the electoral landscape.

Earlier in the day, Rahul Gandhi appeared before a special court in connection with a case filed by the BJP’s Karnataka unit regarding purported “defamatory” advertisements published in mainstream newspapers.

Despite the legal proceedings, Rahul Gandhi remained undeterred, emerging from the courtroom with bail granted.
