DKS demands Rahul Gandhi should assume Cong party leadership


From Our Special Correspondent

Bengaluru, Oct 12: Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee Chief D K Shivakumar strongly demanded that Rahul Gandhi should formally assume leadership of the party accepting the desire of Congress party workers all over the country.

“Rahul Gandhi is presently working as a Congress leader. The party workers are demanding that he should become the Congress president once again as he is the most suitable and ideal person to lead the party,’’ Shivakumar said.

However, while speaking to the media, the KPCC president said election of the Congress party president has to follow certain procedures and formalities, which must be followed and Rahul Gandhi must be duly elected as Congress president.

 

 

Answering questions on the reported move to elevate former Chief Minister and Congress opposition leader in the State Assembly Siddaramaiah to national politics as a party functionary, Shivakumar said no discussion on the subject has taken place in the State.

“As of now, it is just speculation. We don’t want to interfere in the process. It is for the party and the leader of the Congress legislature party (Siddaramaiah) to decide,’’ he said.

On the decision of the BJP to prevail upon the rebel candidates in the by-election to withdraw from the contest, Shivakumar said it is their strategy and said the Congress party is not bothered about their candidates. “We are confident of winning both the seats,’’ he declared.

Answering a question on the allegation by JD(S) leader H D Kumaraswamy that Siddaramaiah was responsible for pulling down of the Congress-JD(S) coalition government, Shivakumar sarcastically remarked that the person who levelled the allegation must be asked for details. ``As far as we are concerned, it is a closed chapter,’’ he said.

Asked about the IT roads on the firm Design Box, which is supposed to be handling the social media of Shivakumar, the KPCC Chief said: “Who told you they are handling my social media account? They are professional persons, who sometimes help and advise me. They will give suitable replies to the IT people. After ascertaining facts, I will give more details,’’ he said.

Shivakumar criticised the State Government for its failure in ensuring sufficient coal stocks and plunging the State in a power crisis.

Earlier, JD(S) leader Ashok Poojary from Gokak in Belagavi district called on Shivakumar at his residence and discussed with him.

Former Minster and senior party leader Motamma and former minister Umashree also called on the KPCC president at his residence.

    stop encouraging goons like nalapad and ensure basic credibility for congress in KN... ensure that congress supports only well educated and cultured minority leaders, not goons or frauds... 80% prefers goons from 80%, that is basic arithmetic... if the choice is between goon from 80% and goon from 20% , it is not difficult to guess who will win...

    This can only mean 2 things: (1) Overconfidence of DKShi in ill gotten money or (2) Over ambition by DK Shi to take over the reins of INC because failure by Rahul Baba if pushed is imminent. If he is intellectually challenged or under influence of fluids sold by excise department, that is a different matter.

    Rahul Gandhi seems a cool and non aggressive guy and lacks the leadership capabilities and charisma of a true leader. As some one suggested Shashi Taroors name I too feel that he is right and deserving to handle the post efficiently.

    First will come Karnataka State Elections right? Some tasks for DKShi and Rahul. FIRST DKShi. Take down.... not in straight line, point by point. 1.Fix Sidda. He is already walking like a crab.His claws already wanting to pull you down. 2.Sidda has said no to Madam, of all people for National Politics.So Sidda is shrewd. Biryani is in State only.Centre only Kotto.So State Fight. 3.After fixing Sidaa and infighting you should not have a Tight look on your face. 4.Should not go to places of Worship for votes.You will be caught out.At least wear masks, to conceal sheepish grins and yawns.Don't take peiole for granted. 5.Last but not least avoid histrionics like ' ಬ್ರಿಟಿಷರ ಕಿನ್ನ ' ಅಂಡ್ all that nonsense. Learn to pronounce ' Jallianwala Bagh ' correctly.. It is not ' Jannanah Or Jaanwaare Bagh '... Be serious even if you cannot. .For you above 5 Ok.Now for your leader whom you want, the problems are too many to count.Firstly, for him, appoint a Kannada teacher. There is one good but strict teacher in ' ಕಳಸ ಕೊಟ್ಟಿಗೆಹಾರ ' He canes those who does not pronounce properly it seems.Leave your leader near this Kannada Master for a week and come.Take a chance.His name Uttari Kirigantal Dodda Narsappa Uddha Lingaiha.... If your leader can pronounce his name, then Karnataka is as good as won for you "!But but first, Let him pass...pronouncing Visweshwaraiha, HardanahalliDoddeGowdaDeveGowda, Basava Vachanas. You have hope? No? Me also NO.But no harm trying.Either that Kannada master will stop teaching or your leader will pass.One result guarantee It's a question of winning a State DKShi.Try Try..

    Readers, DKS is an astute politician.. his recommendation should be accepted by 10th Janpath. Rahul Gandhi has the mind and the energy of a teenager !! His deputy should be Sidhu, who shares his foresight.. this two engine drive, will certainly catapult the INC into the seat of power, in 2024 general election !!!

    K. Tharoor is a thinker, writer and is experienced politician. He could have retired as a celebrity person on his UN pension alone and speech circuit as he has been a well recognized face , but has been fighting for principle on national level. So he’s deserves a chance to lead the Congress party. Sometime or other this dynastic leadership must loosen itself from self adoration.
