As the assembly elections in Karnataka are approaching, the backdoor political activities have started to increase. Over the last few days, there have been a lot of rumours about the names of probable candidates to be the next chief of KPCC (Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee) and out of them, DK Shivakumar seems to be the frontrunner.

According to the reports coming in, DK Shivakumar, energy minister in Karnataka Government has recently met AICC general secretary and in-charge of Karnataka related affairs, KC Venugopal in Delhi. Shivakumar is in Delhi currently to attend a national conference of energy ministers of various states. The two discussed course of politics in Karnataka and about the next probable chief of Karnataka unit of Congress.

The other names running for the post include Housing Board chairman Malikayya Guttedar, Information and Technology minister SR Patil and former minister KH Muniyappa. SR Patil is said to have the support of Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah and that might make the journey for Shivakumar difficult.

The decision will probably be taken next week when KC Venugopal is visiting Karnataka with his team of four secretaries. He will submit his report to the congress senior leadership and there will be an official announcement within next 15 days.

Despite the number of names running for the post, it is believed that the final decision will be taken between SR Patil and DK Shivakumar. For now, the fight seems tough, however, we should have a clarity over this in the coming weeks
