Mumbai: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday urged the party’s Karnataka unit to work unitedly for the 2023 Assembly polls and not speak out publicly on leadership and internal matters.

The former Congress president attended the Karnataka unit’s political affairs committee meeting, where organizational matters and preparations for the upcoming assembly elections were discussed.

If the party comes to power, Gandhi’s call for unity comes amid a political unity game between the two leaders, Legislature Party leader Siddaramaiah and state president DK Shivakumar over the chief minister’s post.

“The committee discussed party organisation and policy matters. The meeting also discussed preparations for the 2023 assembly polls…..PAC will meet frequently and take collective decisions in the interest of the party. Rahul Gandhi appealed to leaders of the party to go aggressively and unitedly against the misrule of the BJP in Karnataka and at the Centre,” AICC general secretary K C Venugopal said.

Talking to reporters here after the meeting, he said Gandhi urged party leaders to work for establishing a people-centric Congress government in Karnataka.

“The entire leadership of Karnataka will join hands and win Karnataka in 2023 elections… Some statements are made here and there in front of the media knowingly or unknowingly. Don’t fall into that trap, talk to the party leaders.” ” There should not be different voices inside or outside,” he said.

Venugopal said that it has been unanimously decided not to speak publicly on internal matters, Venugopal said. Will decide on the leader.”

He said that many internal issues were discussed in the meeting. “We are well prepared to finalize the candidates, announce their names and win the election.”

The Political Affairs Committee of the Congress met on Tuesday for the first time since the Constitution on July 9.

Besides Gandhi, Venugopal, Siddaramaiah and Shivakumar, the party’s campaign committee chief MB Patil, the Leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Council BK Hariprasad, and senior leaders such as HK Patil, Dinesh Gundu Rao, M Veerappa Moily and G Parameshwara attended the meeting.

Rahul Gandhi’s two-day visit to the state assumes significance as the Congress in Karnataka seems to be in a conundrum, with many within the party fearing it would implode ahead of the assembly polls.
