Gulbarga, Dec 25 (UNI) Describing the 'Mysore' incident in which Congress leaders former Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and former Minister M Mahadev indulged in attacking each other at a progrmme as ''trivial'', Pradesh Congress Committee President Mallikarjun Kharge today said the issue did not merit importance for the party to take action against them.
Talking to newspersons here, he said the incident that took place recently was unexpected and the duo resolved their differences.
Dismissing former Chief Minister and BJP leader B S Yeddyurappa's charge that the assembly election in the State would not be held in future, in the wake of BJP victory and Congress debacle in Gujarat, Mr Kharge said that the Election Commission is the one, which decides about elections and not the Congress party. ''The EC would hold elections at an appropriate time,'' he added.
At a separate press conference here, former Karnataka Minister and senior Congress leader D B Chandregowda alleged that the Sangh Parivar was trying to create trouble in Chikamagalur in the name of Datta Jayanthi. They were trying to introduce the rituals, which were non-existence and attempting to disturb the communal harmony, he alleged.
Brushing aside the BJP State President Sadanand Gouda's charge that the Congress in the State was riven with dissensions, Mr Chandregowda alleged that Mr Gouda himself was running a parallel group against Mr Yaddyurappa.
