He said the Congress would win all the 20 Lok Sabha seats in Karnataka and also struck a note of optimism when he said  that Rahul Gandhi would be the next Prime Minister of the country.

Commenting on the present NDA government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said  the PM was a good orator who has achieved nothing as far as  development is concerned. Modi has forgotten all promises he had made to voters, Saleem alleged.

Defending the Congress-JD(S) coalition  government in the state, he said the Congress had to  join hands with the JD(S) to keep the BJP away from power. The coalition government would provide good administration for the next five years, he added.

DCC Chief and MLC Harish Kumar, KPCC General Secretary  G A Bava, KPCC Secretary Naveen D’Souza,  former district president of NSUI  Tejaswi Raj and others were present at the press meet.
