All India Congress Committee (AICC) has appointed former Minister for Food and Civil Supplies Dinesh Gundu Rao as the working president of Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) with immediate effect.

Mr. Dinesh Gudu Rao, who represents Gandhinagar Assembly constituency in Bengaluru, served as the Minister for Food and Civil Supplies for three years. Following the reshuffle, he was dropped from the Cabinet. Sources in the Congress claimed that Mr. Rao was dropped so that his services could be drafted to organise the party in the light of 2018 Assembly polls.

On Monday morning, Mr. Rao’s supporters staged a protest in front of Cauvery, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s official residence. It is said that to assuage his (Mr. Rao’s) feelings, AICC has appointed him as KPCC’s working president

When contacted, Mr. Rao said that he had not received any communication from AICC yet and would react only after receipt of the same.
