Saving Karnataka Congress: Rahul Gandhi dissolves KPCC

 

New Delhi/ Bengaluru: Amid rumblings in the Karnataka Congress unit following its disastrous defeat in the recent polls when it could win only one of the 28 Lok Sabha seats, the Congress high command on Wednesday dissolved the state unit even while retaining its president Dinesh Gundurao and working president Eshwar Khandre.

The dissolution is considered a shot in the arm for Congress Legislature party (CLP) leader Siddaramaiah, now in New Delhi, as he has ensured the retention of Mr.Gundurao, considered close to him, as KPCC president while making sure that the state organisation can be recast by weeding out leaders and their supporters who have been severely critical of his manner of functioning.
