Bangalore: AICC Secretary Sanjay Nirupam
today expressed confidence of the party`s victory in the
coming bye-elections to three assembly constituencies in
Karnataka and said it would soon uproot the BJP government.

Nirupam, who was in the state to coordinate and finalise
the plans for the April nine bye-elections in Chennapatna,
Jagalur (ST) and Bangarapet (SC) constituencies, said that
the Congress had chalked out a strategy for uprooting the BJP
government but refused to elaborate on it.

The Congress was confident of retaining its seats in
Jagalur and Bangarpet, he said.

He also said the party had no plans of entering into a
tie-up with the JDS.

Making a scathing attack on the BJP government, he
accused it of being one of the most corrupt governments, which
had allowed illegal export of iron ore.

He said while BJP attempted to showcase a high moral
ground at the national level, it was silent about the "rampant
corruption" in Karnataka.
