H K Patil appointed KPCC campaign committee chairman

Patil will replace Water Resources Minister D K Shivakumar who currently holds the post.

Congress on Saturday appointed Senior leader and Former Minister H K Patil as Chairman of the Campaign Committee of Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee.

Patil's appointment as chairman of KPCC's campaign committee was approved by Congress president Rahul Gandhi a release from All India Congress Committee said. Patil will replace Water Resources Minister D K Shivakumar who currently holds the post.

Earlier, Patil was lobbying hard for a ministerial berth or the Pradesh Congress Chief post. Though he was considered for the KPCC post, the top brass finally appointed Dinesh Gundu Rao as per the party's plan to promote youth leaders.

Even after that Patil was eying a cabinet berth in the JD(S)-Congress coalition government. However, last week Rahul Gandhi summoned him to Delhi and asked him to take the responsibility of campaign committee chairman.

Patil will have the responsibility of organising and coordinating the campaign along with coalition partner JD (S) as the country faces a general election in April-May next year.
