KPCC meet to chalk out strategies for LS polls

The KPCC coordination committee headed by AICC general secretary in charge of Karnataka Digvijay Singh is scheduled to meet on Monday to discuss among other issues preparations to be made for the crucial Lok Sabha elections and dissatisfaction among a section of MLAs for not making them ministers.

The coordination committee is likely to discuss building the image of the government and ways to ensuring greater coordination between the government and the party.

Other members of the panel are: Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, KPCC chief G Parameshwara, AICC Secretary in charge of Karnataka Chellakumar, Home Minister K J George and Energy Minister D K Shivakumar. Digvijay Singh arrived in Bangalore on Sunday.

In view of dissatisfaction among a section of party leaders over the recent Cabinet expansion, the panel is likely to finalise names for nominating heads to various boards and corporations. By doing so, the party would try to pacify the senior leaders.

It is said the chief minister and the KPCC chief together have prepared a list of 20 names for appointing heads of boards and corporations.

Besides, discussion will be held on appointment of Special Representative of the State government in Delhi, deputy chairperson of the State planning board and political and parliamentary secretaries to the chief minister.

The process to nominate heads and members to various district and taluk-level committees is already underway.

Besides, the panel is likely to discuss and prepare strategies for each of the 28 Lok Sabha constituencies for the coming elections.

The KPCC has collected data of past four Assembly elections and the previous parliamentary elections for this purpose, sources said.

Youth Congress polls

This apart, the elections to various committees of the State Youth Congress will be held on Monday and Tuesday.

Polling will be held between 8 am and 3 pm at all district Congress offices. Members of Assembly, Lok Sabha constituency and State committee of the Youth Congress will be elected in the elections.

As many as 50 candidates are in the fray for the State committee, 500 candidates for Lok Sabha constituency-level committees and 2,500 for Assembly constituency-level committee of the Youth Congress. Counting will be held on January 9 in Bangalore.
