Rajasekharan wants better coordination between government, party

Senior Congress leader and former union minister M V Rajasekharan has urged the party high command to set up a coordination committee headed by AICC incharge of Karnataka to ensure better understanding between the party and the government in the State.

In a letter written recently to AICC president Sonia Gandhi, he is learnt to have suggested that the committee should comprise two to three leaders from the party and an equal number of cabinet ministers. It should meet regularly and take appropriate decisions on both policy and the party matters.

Rajasekharan’ letter to the high command has come at a time when a section of State Congress leaders are unhappy with the style of functioning of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.
Rajashekharan said people have many expectations on the Congress government. Siddaramaiah has immense responsibility to work up to people’s expectations. The government's performance will have a direct bearing on the party. The chief minister should take all party leaders, especially the State party chief, into confidence in running the government.

The way people reduced the BJP’s strength in the Assembly from 110 to mere 40 in the recent elections shows that performance is the priority. It can happen to anybody if fails to perform. “Being a senior Congress worker, I am concerned only about the party. I want Siddaramaiah to be the best chief minister in the county. I want him to further strengthen the party,” he stated.

KPCC president G Parameshwara left for Delhi on Friday to hold a meeting with newly appointed AICC Karnataka incharge Digvijaya Singh. The State Congress chief is likely to discuss the “thanksgiving” programme the State party is planning to organise in four revenue divisions in July, sources said.
