Seven-time MP and senior Congress leader K.H. Muniyappa on Tuesday came out in support of the separation of the posts of Leader of the Opposition and Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader. His statement comes amid reports that the Congress high command was weighing options, including appointing a new CLP leader while continuing with Mr. Siddaramaiah as Leader of the Opposition. However, Mr. Siddaramaiah favours a single leader holding both posts. Meanwhile, Mr. Patil has joined the camp opposing Mr. Siddaramaiah’s proposal on appointing four working presidents to the KPCC.
