KPCC plans meets to thank voters

The Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) has planned to organise conventions in four revenue divisions of Bangalore, Mysore, Belgaum and Gulbarga in July with an intention to thank the electorate for bringing the party to power in the State.

The party wants to make use of the “thanks-giving” conventions to boost the morale of the workers ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. Problems being faced by the local party workers will also be highlighted in these conventions so that the government can address them, sources said.

Poor attendance

Despite direction from KPCC president G Parameshwara that at least one minister should visit the party office every day and interact with the workers, not many ministers have turned up so far. Ministers U T Khader, Umashree, T B Jayachandra, Dinesh Gundu Rao and Shivaraj Thangadagi recently paid a visit to the office located on Queen's Road.

Singh’s visit

Senior Congress leader and the newly-appointed AICC general secretary in-charge of Karnataka, Digvijay Singh, is likely to visit Bangalore next week. He is planning to meet the State party leaders at the KPCC main office to discuss preparations to be made for the coming Lok Sabha polls, sources said.
