Two Congress secretaries quit

By Our Special Correspondent

BANGALORE, MARCH 8. Two Secretaries of the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC), B.S. Paramashivaiah and C.V. Rajappa, on Monday resigned from the primary membership of the party. They are expected to join the BJP. The latter was also a member of the Pradesh Congress Committee's Executive Committee.

The two are followers of the former Chief Minister, S. Bangarappa, who has joined the BJP. In his letter of resignation to the Pradesh Congress Committee President, B. Janardhana Poojary, Mr. Paramashivaiah has said that though he had served the Congress with dedication since 1969, he had received little recognition. The atmosphere in the party was suffocating (a word used by Mr. Bangarappa) and he could no longer remain in it. Mr. Rajappa has noted that he had served the Congress for decades without aspiring for any post.

Along with the two secretaries, one of the Joint Secretaries of the Pradesh Congress Committee, E.S. Chandrashekhar, also resigned from the primary membership of the Congress. However, he has given no reason for his decision.
