Has AAP in Karnataka gone to the dogs?

Submitted by alvin on Mon, 2016-10-24 16:43 Bengaluru: All seems to be not well in the Aam Admi Party, Karnataka unit. The party which offered hopes for a change in Karnataka - other than Delhi - has remained almost invisible. And party member Ravi Krishna Reddy has held Prithvi Reddy, convener, Karnataka chapter, responsible for this state of affairs.In an open letter written to the convener, Ravi Krishna Reddy - without naming Prithvi Reddy - has squarely blamed him. First, he attacks Prithvi Reddy of not knowing Kannada and hence has failed to understand the pulse of party members or even the Kannadigas.Ravi Krishna Reddy Prithvi Reddy He writes that Pritvi Reddy was appointed state convener in 2015, November by Pankaj Gupta, AAP national general secretary. He will continue one year in office in a couple of weeks. But, Prithvi Reddy's achievements as state convener are almost nil. From strengthening the party to taking up issues that's worrying Bengaluru, Prithvi Reddy has completely failed, accused RK Reddy.My open letter to @AAPKarnataka's Convener. pic.twitter.com/ucDt8fE9u4— Ravi Krishna Reddy (@ravikrishna_r) October 23, 2016He has openly challenged Prithvi Reddy to name the districts, suggesting Reddy's ignorance towards the state and its issues.RK Reddy has sought to how Prithvi Reddy has strengthened the party in every district, if at all he has done, how many times he has called the press to speak about Bengaluru and how many campaigns he has organised to bring out the issues affecting Karnataka.RK Reddy has also demanded Prithvi Reddy to provide account for Rs one crore - collected so far in the last one year - that was said to have been utilised for party building exercises.Stating that Prithvi Reddy has failed to organise party meetings, RK Reddy wondered whether the latter was afraid to face the party members or was he ignorant towards the party's objectives.With no assurance from the party convener to address these issues - when discussed internally - he was forced to ask these questions in public, claimed RK Reddy.
