After failing to form a government in Goa and Manipur, the Congress party has decided to replace master strategist and senior leader, Gulam Nabi Azad as Karnataka Congress In-charge.


The Congress party is going through a rough phase and Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh in particular, as he has failed to form the government at Goa and Manipur Assembly in recently concluded elections.


Although Congress emerge as the largest party but BJP snatched the victory from the jaws of defeat by forging an alliance with local parties and also by poaching Congress MLA.


"The party has suffered a humiliating defeat in two States. Had our national leader acted quickly and forged alliance with regional parties, we could have managed to get two more States apart from Punjab. As Karnataka is next target for BJP, the high command do not want to take any chance and that is very reason, Gulam Nabi Azad is being made as Karnataka in-charge soon," said a source from Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee.


Another source said Gulam Nabi Azad’s closeness with Rahul Gandhi and his skills as an observer for Karnataka and united Andhra Pradesh has made the Congress party to think about the change.


Dinesh Gundu Rao, Congress Working President and National Spokesperson, said even he heard about this big change but dubbed this as only rumours.


"I don't think anything like that will happen now. This could be rumours. However, the part is ready to work with whoever is made as Karnataka In-charge," said, Rao.
