Bangalore, Apr 26 (UNI) Union Minister for Science and Technology and AICC Spokesperson Kapil Sibal today expressed confidence that the Congress high-Command would resolve the issues raised by Senior party leader and Congress Working Committee (CWC) Member C K Jaffer Sharief, who reportedly resigned from the party.
Addressing a press conference here, he described Mr Sharief as the 'most respected member of the Congress family' and expressed confidence that the issues would be resolved in a day or two.
Referring to a similar open resentment shown by Mr K Karunakaran, the seniormost party leader from Kerala, Mr Sibal said the octogenarian leader ultimately came back to partyfold after realising his mistake.
''Everything will be ultimately resolved in the larger interest of the party,'' he added.
Mr Sibal said the congress had faced many challenges in distribution of party tickets to its members as it had received a large number of applications from partymen expressing their desire to fight the election.
''The problem was compounded further with the reduction in number of general seats,'' he added.
Stating that twin issues, stability and development, would be the main plank of the Congress party in the coming Assembly elections, Mr Sibal rolled out the statistics of achievements made by the S M Krishna-led Congress Government during in 1999-2004.
In contrast to the achievements of Mr Krishna's government, the previous coalition Government of the JD(S) and BJP indulged in struggle for power, which ultimately led to its fall.
''No non-Congress governments lasted for full term in Karantaka'' Mr Sibal said, adding, the Congress was the only party which could ensure political stability.
Charging that both the BJP and JD(S) had no regard for any ideology, he said the people of Karnataka would reject the politics of opportunism.
