Apathy: Congmen face leaders’ wrath

The Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) office-bearers got an earful from AICC general secretary in-charge of Karnataka K C Venugopal on Friday for displaying inefficiency, especially at a time when the BJP is carrying out statewide, high-decibel campaigns.

Armed with performance reports, Venugopal rued that the office-bearers had failed to carry out assigned tasks in each Assembly constituency. Further, Venugopal is learnt to have pointed out that the partys organisation was weak across all the 28 Assembly segments in Bengaluru.

“The door-to-door Mane Manege Congress outreach was an excellent organisational exercise, but it was not carried out properly in many constituencies,” Venugopal said during a meeting with office-bearers representing all the 224 Assembly segments. “I have all the reports and I know who is performing to what extent. I get reports every 15 days,” he warned them.

Party workers were pulled up for not countering charges made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah. “They come here, speak lies and go. You should tell citizens at the booth-level what our government has achieved. You have to be careful and cautious,” Venugopal said.

Two new campaigns

To counter the BJPs Bengaluru Rakshisi padayatra, the Congress has decided to launch a Namma Bengaluru, Namma Hemme campaign, whose details are being worked out.

As part of this, the Congress will also come out with a charge sheet to showcase the misrule of Bengaluru during the previous BJP regime. The campaign will also highlight the Congress governments contribution to the growth of Bengaluru.

Similarly, Mane Manege padayatras will be carried out in all the 224 Assembly segments from the first week of April till 23rd.

“We have looked into details of every constituency to work out a strategy to win,” KPCC president G Parameshwara said.

Quit or get thrown out

The office-bearers who are ticket aspirants must immediately resign and make way for others, Parameshwara ordered. “If you continue as an office-bearer while being an aspirant, you cannot effectively carry out constituency-related works. If you dont quit, get thrown out,” Parameshwara warned, adding that the office-bearers who bunked Congress president Rahul Gandhis north Karnataka tour will face action.
