Insight Online News

Bengaluru, May 15 : Amidst the suspense over “Kaun Banega Karnataka CM”, all eyes are on Congress top brass to choose the coveted post in the state.

The three central observers led by former Maharashtra Chief Minister Sushilkumar Shinde returned to Delhi yesterday with a report after seeking the views of newly elected MLAs on the leadership of Siddaramaiah and DK Shivakumar.

Intense lobbying for the coveted post by supporters of Siddaramaiah and Shivakumar started with poster-competition after Congress registered a thumping victory in the just-concluded assembly election.

After landing in Bengaluru, the central observers met each of the newly-elected MLAs individually and sought their opinion on the leadership of Siddaramaiah and Shivakumar. Taking the feedback, they returned to Delhi on Monday, and expected to submit the report to AICC President Mallikarjun Kharge.

Kharge will hold consultations with party high command, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, before taking a decision on the next chief minister of the state soon.
