Congress dissolves Karnakata Pradesh Committee (KPCC); retains President, working President

The All India Congress Committee (AICC) on Wednesday decided to dissolve the present committee of Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC). However, the party has decided to retain the president and the working president of the state.

Karnataka Congress State President Dinesh Gundu Rao speaking on the development said, ‘We made a request to Congress President Rahul Gandhi that we need to organize the committee we had made before elections.’

Further revealing the plans about re-organizing the state unit, Rao said, we intend to reorganize not only KPCC but all units including district Block level committees. It’ll be a total reorganization of the party at all levels.

The move came on the backdrop when Congress is facing intense resistance within the party in the state after a poll debacle in the recently held national polls. While The JD-S and Congress Coalition government in the state is also facing threat with many of legislators reportedly upset and the move is keeping the government intact.

The Congress-JD(S) Coalition Government in the state is facing rough patches since it is formed last year. The rough-patches between JD(S)-Congress came to the forefront during a run-up to the national polls in the Karnataka with leaders of both parties accusing each other.

The tussle between the coalition has benefited the Bharatiya Janata Party in the state which swept the national polls in the state bagging 25 Lok Sabha Seat. While JD(S)-Congress Coalition which is in power in the state managed to won one seat each.

In a move to keep the government intact, Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy had on June expanded his state cabinet by inducting two independent Lawmakers in his state cabinet.
