Congress legislators complain against chief minister's coterie

A section of Congress legislators, who met All India Congress Committee (AICC) General Secretary Digvijay Singh on Saturday, expressed its displeasure on a coterie surrounding the Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.

According to party sources, the legislators told Singh, in charge of party affairs in the State, that the coterie has been calling shots. While Siddaramaiah was a good person and administrator, he was being misguided by the members of the coterie. It had become difficult for the legislators to meet the chief minister because of them, they told Singh.

The legislators expressed their anguish that district in charge ministers were not touring the State. Review meeting on implementation of major government programmes like Anna Bhagya and housing scheme were not being held on a regular basis, the legislators complained.

Singh will meet party district presidents, executive committee and office bearers on Sunday. On Friday, Singh chaired the coordination committee meeting of the party. The inputs collected by him will be placed before the central leadership.

Other  suggestions made during Saturday’s interactive session include bringing Priyanka Gandhi into mainstream politics, appointing legislators to head boards and corporations and increasing MLA grants for development projects.
