BENGALURU:  Karnataka Congress Chief Dinesh Gundu Rao on Friday urged party President Rahul Gandhi to contest the Lok Sabha elections from the southern state.

"On behalf of Karnataka Congress, I urge Rahul Gandhi to consider contesting from Karnataka the forthcoming #LokSabhaElections2019. He should be our representative from south India and for that he should choose my state. #RaGaFromKarnataka," tweeted Rao.

The Congress has already announced Gandhi's candidature from Amethi in Uttar Pradesh.

The Lok Sabha elections in Karnataka will be held in two phases -- for 14 seats on April 18 and for the remaining 14 seats on April 23.

The state's ruling Congress-Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) coalition has allotted 20 seats to Congress and eight to JD-S in these elections.
