constituency has been a minister of state for Civil Aviation in the UPA Government. The new appointment has come as a relief to members of the Congress is Karnataka who have been vehemently opposing Digvijaya Singh. Voices of dissent against Singh were loud and clear even as recently as April when he had visited Bengaluru.
An ecstatic Congress worker said that this was the first step towards consolidating the party ahead of the assembly polls. 'Politicians from Kerala are different and their working style is the need of the hour for us. They are disciplined and understand the ground reality,' he said.
