Bangalore: With BJP in Karnataka "reeling under internal bickering", Congress is gearing up to face early Assembly Elections, AICC secretary V Hanumantha Rao said on Sunday.

Talking to reporters here, he said the party leadership had braced itself to face the challenge and workers at grassroots level were "enthusiastic" than ever to face the election.

"We are eager to come back to power as the BJP government is on its last legs. Congress is united and our leaders have committed to work hard. The party is now ready to charge ahead," the leader said.

Congress in the state has been at the receiving end after its loss in the 2004 polls.

"We are preparing our cadres for early elections and the party is now on the alert mode throughout Karnataka", Rao said, adding, "people will definitely seek a change and we have a good chance to bounce back to power".

He said people were fed up with the "corrupt and inefficient governance" of the BJP government. It even failed to utilise huge allocations made by the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre, he said.

The Congress leaders in Karnataka will now tour for the next seven days in the northern districts of Koppal, Gadag and Bellary and "this is a prelude for our struggle to regain power", he said.
