Mangalore: Janata Dal (Secular) State President H D Kumaraswamy today said the Congress' hopes of a comeback in Karnataka may not happen as the party had no programme or a strategy for the Assembly Polls due in May 2013.
Addressing a party programme here, he said Congress Supremo Sonia Gandhi's visit to this Port City earlier this year had no effect on the people of the state as she had 'nothing to offer' to them.
'Congress in Karnataka has no political strategy in place to win next year's Assembly election. JD(S) will emerge as the real force which could address people's problems,' he said.
He opined that Ms Gandhi had cast aspersions on BJP and its 'misrule' in the state, but hardly won people's trust.
Mr Kumaraswamy also condemned Former Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa saying that he had pushed Karnataka to a debt trap by going on a borrowing spree. During his three and half years tenure, the state had witnessed its borrowings shoot up from Rs 50,000 crore to Rs 1.16 lakh crore, he alleged.
