The Karnataka elections are seen as a preamble to the 2019 elections and party's are hoping to make in roads into it. CM Siddaramaiah and party president Rahul Gandhi led the rally attended by over ten thousand party workers and supporters. The parties have formed an alliance to contest in the southern state's election.
