Karnataka Congress leaders meet Rahul
With just a few months left for the Assembly elections in Karnataka, the Congress high-command has directed the State leadership to take firm action against leaders who indulge in anti-party activities and sort out intraparty differences in the State unit and district units.
Karnataka Congress leaders, including Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and KPCC president G. Parameshwara, held an hour-long meeting with Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi in New Delhi on Thursday, and discussed the party’s programmes in the next few months.
Some of the district-level leaders have been opposing the appointment of new DCC presidents by the KPCC, which has been frowned upon by the high command.
During talks, Mr. Gandhi was said to have told the State leadership to take firm action against some of the Congress leaders who have raised a banner of revolt in some districts. Mr. Gandhi told the State leaders to maintain unity and discipline in the party.
He appreciated the government’s performance and also discussed issues related to selection of candidate, manifesto preparation, poll strategy and campaign dates, sources in the Congress told The Hindu.
