The Congress on Thursday held a legislative party meeting and prepared a list of eligible candidates, who are likely to get the party's ticket to contest in the Lok Sabha elections. According to Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee President Dinesh Gundu Rao, the leaders of the Congress and JD(S) will put together a consolidated list of potential candidates to be sent to the high command for approval. "A meeting will be held on March 11, where the final candidates would be selected," Dinesh Gundu Rao said.

Congress insiders say that the party's leaders are not willing to give up the seats which they had won in 2014. "If we give up the seats which we had won against the JD(S), we would essentially be handing over our voter bases to them and this is not in the interest of the party," a Congress source said.
