CM tries to win over unhappy Cong MPs

After criticism from a section of Congress MPs from Karnataka against his style of functioning, Chief  Minister Siddaramaiah held a meeting with party MPs here on Wednesday.

At the meeting, attended by Mallikarjun Kharge, K  H Muniyappa, Dhruvanarayan, Veerappa Moily, D K Suresh, Muddahanume Gowda and  B N Chandrappa, Siddaramaiah is said to have promised that he would address their grievances.

Sources said that the CM told the MPs that they are always welcome to meet him and he was ready to take up any developmental work in their constituencies.
He also told them that they can approach him any time.

The CM’s meeting gained significance as some of the party MPs, who held a dinner meeting at Moily’s residence recently, had expressed anguish against his style of functioning.
The CM, who will be in national capital for the next two days, also sought an appointment with party president  Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi to discuss the state’s issues.

“If I get an appointment I will meet them, otherwise I will meet them next time,” he said. He said he would come to Delhi again by end of this month to discuss about cabinet reshuffle.
