Banner politics in Panemangaluru Congress Bantwal : The groupism in the Panemangaluru unit of the Congress has once again come to the fore through a banner put up in the town. It is a known fact that there has been a veiled war between local Congress leaders and elected representatives since the past few months. With most of the elected representatives of the area being women, it is said the Congress leaders here wanted the former to act as per their dictats. But, when the women elected representatives paid little heed to their dictats and took decisions on their own, there had arisen a conflict of interests and a veiled war.
