Parameshwara calls for ‘collective leadership’

Former deputy chief minister G Parameshwara on Tuesday pitched for “collective leadership” in Congress, a party in which senior leaders are upset because, they say, decision-making is vested with one faction.

“The bypolls are coming. The Congress can definitely win all the seats if we face the bypolls under a collective leadership,” Parameshwara said while speaking at an event to commemorate Indira Gandhi’s 102nd birth anniversary. He also repeatedly stressed that it was Indira Gandhi’s anti-poverty moves that allowed governments to dole out free rice.

This remark was seen as directed towards his bete noire Siddaramaiah, who launched the Anna Bhagya scheme when the party was in power.
