Karnataka Ministers, who’re in-charge of the 28 Lok Sabha seats within the state, have left for New Delhi to attend a gathering with the highest nationwide leaders of the Congress on Thursday.
Though the assembly has been primarily organized to debate methods and kit up for the Parliamentary polls, sources confirmed that Rahul Gandhi will tackle the problem of infighting throughout the Congress unit in Karnataka.
Despite clarifications by Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge and Karnataka in-charge Randeep Singh Surjewala that no extra Deputy Chief Minister posts shall be created, Minister for Cooperation and CM Siddaramaiah loyalist Ok.N. Rajanna stated on the Bengaluru International Airport earlier than leaving for the nationwide capital on Thursday that creation of extra DyCM posts would assist the occasion.
“If additional DyCM posts are created in the state before the Lok Sabha polls it would benefit the party. We have given suggestions to the high command in this regard. We will abide by the decision of the high command, ” Minister Rajanna said.
“The high command has called a meeting of in-charge ministers of 28 MP seats in Karnataka. All of us would attend it, ” he stated.
Minister for Home Dr. G. Parameshwara said the proposal to create further DyCM posts within the state is earlier than the excessive command. “We don’t know what choice the excessive command will tackle this subject, ” stated Minister Rajanna. who has been vocal about this proposal and claims that it could profit the occasion.
“Today, a gathering with Rahul Gandhi shall be held and I don’t know what shall be mentioned within the assembly, ” he said.
Sources stated that the hole is widening between CM Siddaramaiah and DyCM D.Ok. Shivakumar within the state. Siddaramaiah is insisting on accommodating solely MLAs to the posts of boards and firms.
Shivakumar had introduced within the presence of CM Siddaramaiah that loyal employees would even be thought-about for the posts. The subject will even come up earlier than the excessive command, sources stated.
