Four AICC observers to visit Karnataka to decide CM issue New Delhi: Congress is sending four AICC observers led by AK Antony to Karnataka on Friday to elicit the views of newly elected MLAs on the issue of chief ministership.

"Senior minister A K Antony, AICC general secretary in-charge of the state Madhusudan Mistri, Luizinho Faleiro, who was Karnatataka's screening committee chairman, and Union Minister Jitender Singh are going as AICC observers to Karnataka tomorrow," party general secretary Janardan Dwivedi said.

Congress yesterday made a spectacular come back in the state after seven years in its old southern bastion, decimating the ruling BJP whose fate was sealed by a fractious split and corruption charges.

The party's victory immediately triggered a Chief Ministerial race involving OBC leader Siddaramaiah and Dalit leader and Central Minister Mallikarjun Kharge.

The shock defeat of KPCC chief G Parameshwara virtually eliminated him from the race for chief ministership.
