Stay there, we will come- Congress High Command

The front runner for the post of Chief Minister, Siddaramaiah has been instructed by the Congress high command to stay put in Bangalore. He has been told that two senior leaders, Ambika Soni and A K Antony will visit Bangalore late tonight and decide on when to convene the Congress Legislature party meeting to elect a new leader.

Siddaramaiah had said yesterday that he would be leaving for Delhi today to thank his leaders. However the intention behind his visit was to push his case to become the Chief Minister.

The Congress leaders from Delhi, Ambika and Antony will arrive at Bangalore late tonight. They will hold several round of talks with the state leaders including Mallikarjuna Kharge and G Parameshwar to decide on who the next Chief Minister should be. Once a consensus is arrived at, they would conduct the CLP meeting and a new leader would be formally elected.

  1. This is the exact high-command culture against which so many states have been lost by congress. But, then this is to be expected as all talk of ‘internal democracy’ is only for show. If Rahul Gandhi actually wanted internal democracy, this would be a good time to show it by holding a true election within CLP and elect a leader instead of appointing one.

  2. Isn’t there an eerie silence from S.M. Krishna so to speak. I have not heard about him throughout the election fiasco and victory except for some references pre election that he stands a chance of being the CM once again ! 🙂
