Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Tuesday said that there is no 'Modi wave' in poll-bound state and Congress is confident of winning the Assembly elections due in April-May.

"There is no anti-incumbency in the state. "That's why we are confident and we will come back," the Karnataka chief minister said when asked if the BJP's victory in northeast will have an impact in Karnataka.

Meanwhile, the Congress is likely to announce its list of candidates for upcoming polls by the end of this month. "The ticket distribution process is on. By the end of March, we will announce our list of candidates," Siddarmaiah said.

Asked if frequent tour of PM Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah to the state will dent the party prospects, he said, "More and more Modi and Shah visit the state, it will benefit Congress. We are not afraid." 

"Congress president Rahul Gandhi's poll campaign in the state will definitely yield results," he added.
