D K Shivakumar to assume charge of Karnataka Congress via digital mode


Bengaluru, June 5 (IANS): Congress leader D.K. Shivakumar will assume charge as Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) President digitally amid the Covid-19 pandemic without any fanfare, a party spokesperson said on Friday.

"We are organising a simple and unique programme. Shivakumar will take charge as KPCC President in a virtual way using digital technologies," party leader V.S. Ugrappa told IANS.

Karnataka Congress will live stream the ceremony in nearly 8,000 places in the state, including 6,025 gram panchayats and 198 wards in the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), among other places.

"We are expecting at least 100 people to attend, view and participate in the event at all the 8,000 places, leading to 8 lakh people participating," said Ugrappa.

Due to the prevailing Covid-19 pandemic, he said the party is avoiding a large gathering.

"Around 150-200 people, including legislators, former legislators and others will participate at the Congress Bhavan in Bengaluru," he said.

"We will read the preamble and rededicate ourselves to the Constitution. We will take an oath to strengthen the party," said Ugrappa.

All the speeches by the Congress party leaders would also be live-streamed via the Zoom app.

Originally scheduled to take place on Sunday, the party has changed its plans owing to the lockdown rules. However, the opposition will wait till Monday to take its next step.

"Once we get the permission, only then we will go ahead as we are law abiding people," said Ugrappa.

Meanwhile, Kanakapura MLA Shivakumar has already written to Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa seeking permission to conduct the event.

    They are just strenghtening the JDS. JDS is a lucky party, they have to sit back and see that Cong does all the hard work for elections. The more the Cong slogs the better its for JDS. For sure Cong is not going to win by a majority it may come a distant second, So Cong will have to support JDS and knowing Dodda Gowdru and Kari Idli they will ensure Kari Idli becomes the CM and the Finance Minister. So any ways advantage JDS.

    Hope he has some new ideas on bringing reforms and industrialization and improve Karnatakas economy. All other leaders only seem to look to centre for help which is a shame.

    Rathan,

    Can we also discuss Chota Shah business model ? Growth rate of 1500 times is just unimaginable. We need to implement this model for the growth of the country.

    Chota Shah is not out on "bail" and was not convicted and behind bar for 50 days.
    Even Sr Shah who was behind bar came out clean duri g UPA rule itself that clearly shows the case was filed without any substance
    Can you quantify the total amount? Don't go by percentage.
    It was his turnover and not assets

    Unless and untill the current dispensation, of accumulated dry, dead wood, at the High command, in Delhi and their subjects in Bangaluru, is burnt in the bonfire, their will not be any revival in the Grand old party.... They will face rejection, humiliation at the hands of the electorate !!!!

    It will be RaGa at the center. DKS, Siddaramiah, Khagre with HDK, HDD in the state. Ivan , Ramanatha Rai , Mithun Shetty in DK. What an irony. ?
    You are right!! I still wonder why doesnt the party realize this?? when will they introspect? Its not long ago that Cong literally was wiped out of the nation .The biggest humiliation was the loss of the strong hold or the bastions to the BJP and contesting in a safe constituency as a ' fall back' plan for survival .
    What more is required to prove the mantle of such leaders? I totally blame the supporters, who have forgotten the past and still believe the old crop will deliver results despite the disasterous track record.
    The strategy is simple. Blame EVMs for the past rout. Bid some time and do some mocking , jibing and lashing at the Central Govt and they are deemed Heros or 'Tigers' by the Congi brigade. Repeat the cycle . Guys when will thou learn?

    H. Almeida,
    Lenny,

    Being in the group of Andhbhakts, I do not think Congress need your expert advice. As per immense knowledge you have, if Congress loose its base with DKS as president of KPCC, it will be gain for BJP. You all should be happy and celebrate this with ತಾಟಿ, ಜಾಗಟೆ, ಘಂಟೆ and ದಿಯಾ

    At the same time with your expertise, you should advise your leader to have a better FM. Having ಪಿಸುಂಟು Nirmala at control of the Finance Ministry will take the economy further down.

    BJP leaders are exempted from Corona Virus. They are infected by the Modi-Shah virus which is Mother Virus-like Mimi.
