New Delhi:  Senior Congress leader Luizinho Falerio has been appointed the Chairman of the party's Screening Committee for poll-bound Karnataka, where assembly elections are due this year.

Union Minister Jitender Singh and AICC general secretary in-charge for the state Madhusudan Mistri are other members of the five-member Committee.

Others include Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee chief G Parmeshwar and Congress Legislative Party leader Siddaramaiah.

Elections for 224 assembly seats of Karnataka are due in May this year.

Congress is hoping for a revival of its fortune in the BJP-ruled state, which was the first Southern state, where the BJP formed its government.

BJP, is however, in a disarray after former Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa parted ways from it and formed a separate party.
BJP suffered a crushing defeat in the recent urban body polls in Karnataka with Congress making a spectacular performance.
