Why are seniors being sidelined in Congress, asks Ramalinga Reddy

In fresh trouble for the Congress, former Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy has lashed out at those at the helm of the party in the State for what he called “neglect of seniors, lack of coordination and inefficiency of some Ministers” that all contributed to the party’s humiliating loss in the Lok Sabha elections.
While the Congress has been trying hard to placate rebel MLAs who have been threatening to quit, the fresh salvo comes from seniors who feel that the so-called rebels are privileged over loyalists. In an open letter posted on Twitter, Mr. Reddy stated that the Congress had suffered in the absence of an elderly party statesman in the coalition ministry and because of a “lack of organisational vision” in some Ministers.
“Not including party veterans in the coalition ministry and lack of performance of some Ministers led to the poor performance in the Lok Sabha polls in KarnatakaSeniors like me were denied ministerial berths, and I have never indulged in lobbying for Cabinets berths,” Mr. Reddy tweeted.
The seven-time MLA served as Home Minister and Transport Minister in the previous Siddaramaiah government. His daughter, Sowmya Reddy, is an MLA from Jayanagar constituency in Bengaluru.
