Kar­nataka Congress lead­ers meet Rahul

The Hindu - - SOUTH - Spe­cial Cor­re­spon­dent

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.

Firm ac­tion

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.
