After a successful stint in the North-East, Faleiro was given additional charge as the Chairman of the Central Election Committee (CEC) for the Karnataka Elections and AICC sources state that it has been his firm hand on the distribution of tickets to the candidates that has seen Congress crossing the majority mark of 113 of the 223 seats in Karnataka.
GoaChronicle.com spoke exclusively to the Faleiro via a telephonic conversation. He said, “It is a people’s victory. The people of Karnataka have voted the corrupt BJP government out and voted for the Congress. And this is just the signs of the days to come ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, where people will continue to repose their faith in the Congress party.”
