Former Karnataka Chief Minister and Congress leader Siddaramaiah on Tuesday said that Rahul Gandhi had asked him to become the general secretary but he refused. His statement has come at a time when the Karnataka Congress is facing reports of estrangement between its two strong leaders these days. Let us tell you that the assembly elections are going to be held in the state in 2023.

Briefing the media after meeting All India Congress Committee (AICC) President Sonia Gandhi in Delhi, Siddaramaiah said, “Rahul Gandhi had asked me to become the General Secretary of Congress, but I refused. In my central politics. No interest. I am only concerned with state politics.”

“We have not discussed any issue related to national politics. We only discussed state politics and upcoming by-polls in the state,” he said.

Even though the elections are due in 2023, the battle for leadership is still on. The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party has recently undergone a change of leadership. At the same time, two strong Congress leaders DK Shivakumar and Legislature Party leader Siddaramaiah have come face to face. On several occasions, the tussle between the two has come to the fore.

Recently, several MLAs openly supported Siddaramaiah as the chief minister’s face despite the party leadership’s decree. This support had angered Shivakumar, who also has ambitions to become chief minister.
