BENGALURU: Upset over malpractice and rigging during the recently held Youth Congress elections, four state Youth Congress vice presidents resigned on Wednesday, when the newly elected office bearers took charge.

Kemparaju, R Rajendra, K Shivakumar and Soumaiya Tabrez - all VPs of state unit, along with secretary Boregowda, submitted their resignations to Amrinder Singh Raja Brar, President of Indian Youth Congress, who had arrived in the City to take part in the swearing-in event.

They complained that even though the three-member team from Delhi had received several complaints about malpractice, a swearing-in ceremony was held without any action being taken. This looks like an eyewash to the committed party workers, they alleged.

Further they said that Amruth Gowda who was also announced as the vice president had been ‘nominated’, though he had secured only the fourth place and this was a blatant violation of election rules and high handedness of election authorities.
