On Sunday, Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge arrived in Bengaluru and was greeted enthusiastically by party members there. Kharge visited his home territory for the first time after being chosen as the national leader of the venerable party.
Kharge was greeted by DK Shivakumar and Siddaramaiah, leaders of the Karnataka Congress, on Sunday afternoon at the Bengaluru airport.
“Mr. Kharge is making his debut on home soil for the first time after being elected as a unanimous leader, president of the AICC in the cause of democracy,” stated a tweet from the Karnataka Congress. At Bangalore International Airport, the AICC President was welcomed. – (sic)”
A “proud moment” for every Kannadiga in the state, according to the party. It is cause for excitement for all Kannadigas because a Kannadiga has held the position of President of the Congress, a historical party entwined with the history of the nation, according to another post.
Kharge will attend the “Sarvodaya Samevesha” award event on Sunday night at Bengaluru’s Palace Grounds. In preparation for the assembly elections in 2023, this ceremony is seen as a strength display by the Karnataka Congress.
Following his victory over MP Sashi Tharoor in an internal election, Mallikarjun Kharge was elected party president of the grand old party. It is predicted that the 80-year-old leader from Kalaburagi in Karnataka, who is the first non-Gandhi Congress president in 24 years, will help the Congress in the state’s competitive election.
