Faleiro charm works for Congress victory in Karnataka

Interestingly while Congress failed in Goa to even reach double figures in its Goa Assembly Elections 2012, it is their lucky mascot from Goa – former Chief Minister Luizinho Faleiro – who has once again proved his mettle and has led Congress to a major victory in the Karnataka Assembly Elections 2013.

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.”
