Congress leader in the Lok Sabha Mr Mallikarjun Khage on Monday said that the Dalit Chief minister issue was created by the media and the Congress Legislature party and party high command will decide the issue of who should become the chief minister of Karnataka after the Assembly poll results declared.
Talking to the press persons here Mr Kharge said, ‘’This issue has been created in media to create differences between us (Congress leaders in Karnataka). We are clear that high command will decide on it. It’s just a matter of 12 hours”.
Mr Kharge said that in the state Congress there were no difference of opinion among the leaders and the ‘Dalit CM’ issue was always created by the media and not in the party leaders, he said.
If the Congress forms a government in the state and appoints a Dalit Chief Minister, the Congress party leader in the Lok Sabha would be one of the top contenders for the post.
