Leaders to boycott Chief Minister's visits

Special Correspondent

BANGALORE: Rebellious Congress leaders of Tumkur district on Sunday decided to boycott the visits of the Chief Minister N. Dharam Singh to their district in protest against the Government's handling of Friday's election to the post of president of the Tumkur District Milk Union.

At the meeting at Mr. Jalappa's residence, the leaders also decided to stay away from the meeting of the executive committee of the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) to be held on October 19.

They demanded the intervention of the All India Congress Committee (AICC) General Secretary in charge of the State A.K. Antony and the KPCC President M. Mallikarjun Kharge to save the Congress in the district.

According to party sources, the Tumkur leaders declined to meet the Chief Minister at his official residence stating that they had faith only in Mr. Kharge. The PCC President stands above the Chief Minister in party matters.
