BENGALURU: In the first move to rebuild Congress in Karnataka following its dismal performance in the Lok Sabha polls and to counter the simmering dissent, the high command on Wednesday dissolved the state unit, retaining only president Dinesh Gundurao and working chief Eshwar Khandre. AICC general secretary KC Venugopal, also in-charge of Karnataka, said all heads and members of election and campaign committees would be changed. The KPCC had around 200 office bearers, including vice-presidents, general secretaries, secretaries and members of various committees with specific responsibilities. Gundurao said his focus would be to identify honest and committed workers and give them responsibilities. Congress insiders claimed the move was long overdue after the appointment of Gundurao as KPCC president in July 2018. “All existing office-bearers were appointed by G Parameshwara and Gundurao had sought a reshuffle. Usually, the high command gives the new president a free hand to have a team of his choice,” said a senior Congress leader.
