“We had a lengthy discussion. It is our internal assessment that we got 136 in Karnataka. In Madhya Pradesh we are going to get 150 seats. What we did in Karnataka we are going to repeat that (in Madhya Pradesh),” Gandhi said.
Gandhi, however, evaded questions on whether the party will project Nath as its chief ministerial face.
Aggarwal, on the other hand, said all leaders gave their inputs for the upcoming assembly elections.
“Everyone felt that all leaders should contest the elections unitedly and help the party win in the state,” he said.
Later, Nath said all leaders discussed poll strategy and the issues on which the party should contest these elections. “We are all of the opinion that we will enter the poll fray unitedly,” he said.
Nath also said Congress will issue guarantees in MP like it had done in Karnataka, and said a beginning has been made in Madhya Pradesh with the party’s ‘Nari Samman Yojna’.
