Cong MPs hold meeting at Moily's residence

All Congress members of Parliament from Karnataka met at former union minister Veerappa Moily's residence and discussed about the style of functioning of chief minister Siddaramaiah.

The leaders expressed their unhappiness and felt that the chief minister was ignoring senior leaders. They have decided to take up the issue with Congress President Sonia Gandhi. They would emphasise on the need to convene a meeting of senior leaders to improve the image of the government.The members felt that the chief minister should hear grievances of MPs and attend to problems in their constituencies. The chief minister has called the meeting of MPs only once in the last three years. Though several requests had been made for convening the meeting, the chief minister chose to ignore them. They felt that Siddaramaiah had not effectively tackled the drought.

At least one of the members said that he would draw the attention of the chief minister to the grievances of the MPs. Former ministers Mallikarjun Kharge, Oscar Fernandes, K H Muniyappa, former Rajya Sabha deputy chairman Rahman Khan, B K Hariprasad and others were present in the meeting.
