Udupi: Appointment of new block Congress chief stirs dissent, Acharya & his supporters set to resign


Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (JD)

Udupi, Sep 19: Signalling impending trouble for the district Congress, scores of party workers are said to be preparing to resign in protest over the appointment of new president of Udupi block Congress.

On Saturday September 18, CMC member Ramesh Kanchan was appointed president of Udupi block Congress. Soon after his appointment, dissent sprung from supporters of Krishnamurthy Acharya Kinnimulki, who was also in contention for the post. He along with his supporters have decided to resign from various party positions.


Krishnamurthy Acharya

Krishnamurthy Acharya Kinnumulki happens to be the current president of Udupi Congress publicity cell. He has a good number of supporters among the youth in the party. Many of his supporters also head some of the youth wings of district Congress.

"Krishnamurthy Acharya has worked for the party for more than 18 years now. He was assured of the block president position by the leaders. He has also worked relentlessly during the Covid pandemic. We being his supporters have decided to resign from the party in protest," said a supporter on condition of anonymity.

Krishnamurthy Acharya's team had met KPCC president D K Shivakumar recently in Bengaluru. A meeting was held then, and a second round of discussion was held during Shivakumar's recent visit to Udupi and Mangaluru.

The office-bearers and members of DKS Abhimani Balaga, Rahul Brigade, a few of the block Congress presidents along with other key position holders inside the party who are in favour of Krishnamurthy Acharya Kinnumulki have now decided to resign from party.

Krishnamurthy Archarya has said that he will resign from the party and contest the next elections as an independent.

A final round of discussion among Acharya's supporters is expected to be held on Sunday September 19, and on Monday they will submit their resignations, sources said.

The appointment of the new Udupi block Congress president was made on September 7, but due to some issues, the announcement was made 10 days later.

Speaking to daijiworld, Krishnamurthy Acharya said, "We have worked for the party for more than 18 years. One who has lost the elections several times is now interfering. Over a thousand party workers including CMC coucillors will regsign from the party on Monday."

    For a very long time congress forgot about grassroot workers unlike BJP which had RSS do all the ground work. Now both are rich as well as powerful. Too bad ALL have forgotten the common man.

    Dont worry, Rahul Gandhi will use Alexandrian approach to solve Youth Congress problem in Udupi. But problem is , Udupi congress does not have any public post other than some Taluk panchayat so that it can demand one of its veteran to resign. Everyone has either resigned or defeated in elections in recent past.

    Party choose a person who is having good SUPPORTERS only WHY? Why they need supporters when people vote and elect. STOP ALL THESE nonsense. Give post, position for good person or youth to work for the people not for pover hungry people.

    Everywhere there Galata and Kolhala. When they sincerely work for people...god omly knows. At least they can learn from one of biggest party of the world having large numbers of people active in it..working sincerely towards there goal. In Congress only to please one another is become a herculean task. Some of supporters of congress only active in social network and not seen anywhere in ground level..reason behind collapse of party. They themselves are not much confident of winning in front of powerful Modiji's team..a true fact. Hinghe Aadhare Henghe...

    Congress party has been on self destruction mode since a decade and revival of it to gain power is now proved to be remote. There is no able leadership to counter the ruling party other than Twitter posts.

    Good organiser in making party members resign. The chaddis inside congress will break the party and even Lord Brahma cannot save the party. Very good development inside the party for the development of the region.

    One thing in this Century odd year old party is now Common... Though there is no Grass Root Cadre in the party infighting starts from the grass root level upto State and then Delhi levels... Here you see.... This Kanchana fellow at the root... then at State DKshi- Sidda, then Delhi.. Twitter Hero vs G23 with Shashi joining the bandwagon ! In Punjab an anti national is preferred over a disciplined soldier of the party for 4 decades !!!And really some here believe that this Party is going to make it in 2024 !! Really see readon folks! The Party is in complete self destructive mode and nothing can save it ! Tata Tata Goodbye... Aap ka kuch nahin hone waala....
