Bengaluru: Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge has said on Saturday that if we have to save the constitution, it is necessary that we should sacrifice as well. Speaking on the unrest in the Congress party due to the allocation of portfolios in Bengaluru, Congress leader expressed his opinion.
Kharge said,”To save the constitution and democracy, we have to sometimes make sacrifices. Some members are dissatisfied. The high command and their representatives will definitely talk to them about it.” “The elections coming up in 2019 are very important, all of us have to stick together and work for it. I hope we will all progress in unity,” Kharge said.
“They are also aware of the reason behind the decision, and they themselves say, ‘we will stay loyal to the party and have no plans of leaving it, but injustice has been done to us and it should be corrected’,” he added. Kharge also stressed on the importance of maintaining unity among the party members as the 2019 General Elections is on the horizon. Meanwhile, supporters of Congress leader Ramalinga Reddy staged protests outside Bengaluru’s Town Hall, demanding a ministerial berth for him in the state cabinet, continuing the recent theme of unrests in the grand old party. The Congress-Janata Dal (Secular) alliance government on June 1 announced the allotment of portfolios among them.
