By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru: Lakshminarayan M D Chairman OBC Cell KPCC has recently appointed Sri B K Shankar as state secretary OBC Cell KPCC (4th from right in above photos) to attract OBC voters in Karnataka. Reportedly Congress president Rahul Gandhi have issued instructions to "Find people who have not voted for congress and develop a plan to win back their trust by accommodating their leaders in cabinet and Boards and corporations and party posts and make coalition Government to accept few casts in OBC and also accept AJ Sadashiva commission report and pave way for internal reservation for 'SC Left' . Since Rahul took over the mantle of the Congress, there has been an attempt to increase the representation of the backward classes and Dalits and minorities in the party organisation. Bitter lessons In the electorally crucial Uttar Pradesh, which has 80 Lok Sabha seats, OBCs constitute 45% of total population. In 2014, barring the seats of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi in Rae Bareli and Amethi, the Congress had lost in all other seats . Congress MP and head of the OBC wing of the Congress Tamradhwaj Sahu was told by the party leadership some time back to visit states and collect data regarding the functioning of OBC cells. Sahu had been meeting the representatives of backward classes in different states ever since he was appointed the head of the OBC wing. Sahu is an MP from Durg in Chhattisgarh, where the Congress had lost to BJP in the last Assembly polls in 2008 by a mere margin of 0.75% votes. OBCs constitute around 50% voters in Chhattisgarh.
