Speaking on the occasion Pramod Madhwaraj said that, Congress has decided to reach every house in all the 224 Assembly constituencies in the state through booth-level agents in order to spread the party’s message and inform people of the achievements of the Siddaramaiah government. The Siddaramaiah government which is the only government in the country has made tremendous developments in every section of the people. Booth-level Congress workers will educate people on the achievements of the party government in the state and ‘failures’ of the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre as part of the campaign. The party has already formed booth-level committees for this purpose, he added.
