Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Monday slammed the Congress saying that the party will not win for the next hundred years
While addressing a press conference at Tumakuru in Karnataka, the CM said, "I don't think that Congress can do anything. Nobody should keep in mind that Congress will come to power. Congress will not win for the next 100 years."
"This constituency (Tumakuru) symbolizes the corruption and inefficiency of Congress. Today, out of 342 villages, most villages don't have drinking water and road,” he added.
The CM further said that BJP wants to convert the region into the most efficient constituency in Karnataka. That is why we have put the best candidate because we want to serve the great people of this constituency," he said.
It is to be mentioned that Karnataka will go to polls on May 10 and counting of votes will be done on May 13.
"Earlier, they (Congress) used to accuse us of problems with EVMs. So, if they can predict the result in advance, then I have to say that the party in Karnataka must have gathered some knowledge about EVMs," CM Sarma said.
