Rahul Gandhi tells Siddaramaiah, DK Shivakumar to work together | Bengaluru News

BENGALURU: At a meeting in Delhi on Tuesday, Rahul Gandhi asked state Congress president DK Shivakumar and legislature party leader Siddaramaiah to work together, functionaries said.
The two senior members have been at loggerheads on many issues, including who will be the party’s face for the 2023 assembly elections. The Congress high command had summoned them to iron out their differences.
Rahul reportedly instructed Shivakumar and Siddaramaiah to fight the assembly polls under collective leadership, warning them against projecting themselves as the chief ministerial candidate.
“Rahul Gandhi gave us some advice, which we will follow sincerely. Certainly, there are minor differences of opinion. Congress has a strong internal democracy. Having a difference of opinion is part of a democratic set-up, but we will remain united,” Siddaramaiah said at a press conference.
Shivakumar said that Congress would go to the next polls under united leadership. “Congress is a national party with a well-defined ideology. It’s collective leadership and there’s no scope for individual leadership. We have a dozen leaders, and the party will go to the elections under them,” he said.
