"The charge sheet will be released April 13. We will also release our manifesto," said a Congress leader dealing with the state.

Former BJP chief minister B.S. Yeddyurappa was removed after the state Lokayukta's report nailed corruption charges on the leader.

The results would be out May 8.

The Congress has announced its first list of 177 candidates and would announce the remaining 47 this week, said party sources.
