Karnataka CM Siddharamaiah holds breakfast meeting with his senior party colleagues at Karnataka Bhavan in New Delhi

Bengaluru/Delhi: Even as it seems there is no end for speculation regarding the appointment of new State Congress Chief, the speculation reached a new high on Sunday with the Congress High Command convening a meeting of select party leaders from Karnataka in New Delhi today.

Chief Minister Siddharamaiah, along with KPCC President Dr. G. Parameshwara and others,  left Bengaluru for New Delhi last evening. Other leaders who have been invited for the meeting called by AICC Vice-President Rahul Gandhi are M. Mallikarjun Kharge, M. Veerappa Moily, M.B. Patil, R. Roshan Baig and H.K. Patil, it is learnt.

Today’s meeting is likely to deliberate on the observations made by AICC General Secretary in-charge of Karnataka K.C. Venugopal on strengthening the party in the State.

With reports on change of KPCC President doing the rounds, the meeting may also discuss whether change in leadership in the State Unit would be appropriate ahead of the 2018 Assembly elections.

The meeting began at AICC Vice-President Rahul Gandhi’s Tughlaq Crescent Lane residence in the National Capital with CM Siddharamaiah, KPCC President Dr. G. Parameshwara, KPCC Working President Dinesh Gundu Rao, Ministers K.J. George, D.K. Shivakumar, M.B. Patil and H.K. Patil, former Minister and senior leader S.R. Patil, MPs K.H. Muniyappa and Rahman Khan and other senior State Congress leaders attending the meeting.

Siddharamaiah, who landed in New Delhi yesterday, had discussions over breakfast today on party affairs with his senior party colleagues at Karnataka Bhavan.
