Bengaluru: Appointment of new KPCC president - Siddaramaiah summoned to Delhi

Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Jan 12: There have been various ups, downs, and developments relating to the filling of the void created by the resignation of Dinesh Gundu Rao to the post of the president of Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC), owning moral responsibility of the party's pathetic permanence in different elections.

The high command, which is showing urgency to make this appointment now, has invited former chief minister and leader of the opposition in the assembly, Siddarmaiaah, to reach Delhi. Siddaramaiah will be travelling to Delhi on Monday January 13 evening.

The high command, which already has got report from its observers and also Dr G Parameshwar about the choice of the new president, now wants to have another round of talk with Siddarmaiaah on the issue, it is gathered. It is said that Siddarmaiah, who too has resigned from both the posts he held, may be urged to continue as the leader of the opposition. Therefore, KPCC might see a new president shortly, while election may be held for the post of the leader of the Congress legislature party. However, Siddarmaiah is reportedly insistent that the posts of legislature party leader and leader of the opposition should remain with one person.

No one is sure about the purpose for which Siddarmaaiah has been asked to come to Delhi. Siddaramaiah is expected to bat for either M B Patil or Krishna Byre Gowda as KPCC president whereas names of D K Shivakumar, K H Muniyappa, B K Hariprasad and Ramalinga Reddy are heard from the camp of original Congressmen. Satish Jarkiholi in the meantime, has announced that he toois an aspirant for thi post of KPCC president.

KPCC, which is going through a lean patch in Karnataka, needs a vibrant leader who can bring together all the factions in the party and lead them towards bringing back the past glory. Only time will tell how far the high command's decision over KPCC presidential candidate will work in favour of the party.

    Siddu again??? I dont understand , why Cong is behind old, out dated, tried tested, lost, written off and rejected leaders. Why doesnt the party try out new faces or young leaders??? When is the party going to introspect?? It has to learn from its opponents and other parties, Youngsters like Udaya Surya, Khaniyyaa kumar, etc are a huge hit with young and old alike . Their speeches, ideas, body language , temperament have garnered huge support from masses and have won elections as well.
    Siddu, Gowdas, Gundu Rao, R Rai, Lobo, Ivan, etc should be show the door & immediately replaced,

    Alan, Mangalore .. Bro, Congress is a family party, RaGa is hanging in there despite 50 plus defeats. Priyanka Vadra has been elevated to the VP position sidelining experienced and senior leaders in the party , She is contesting in UP soon without any office experience or merit .So the biggest issue here is , what if the 'young ones' inducted in the Cong ' over take' the highly IQed Pappu ? This should not happen as per Congress. To ensure that the 50 year old yuva neta is not overtaken its compulsorily limited to old candidates who are in the verge of retirement or demise and just hang on for survival and can call Pappu as 'Sir'.
    Hope this clarifies our point,

    The Congress High Command or whatever is left of it ....would do well to see a small clip of the Badami Car Festival ..which this HULIYA attended to know his popularity among the masses....
    The crowd in thousands were shouting" Modi Modi" and Huliya looked completely KARIYA then ....

    Jossey Ha Ha Ha...let him try to win his own home constituency first. If not, like his boss, Siddu may have to find a safe constituency somewhere in Kerala to win on Muslim votes,
