Show-cause notice to 15 'absentee' ministers

 The absence of about 15 members from Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s Council of ministers during Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s recent visit to Mandya and Haveri has not gone down well with the party high command.

AICC general secretary incharge of Karnataka Digvijaya Singh is learnt to have directed KPCC president G Parameshwara to issue show-cause notice to the 15 ministers. Both the party and the chief minister had directed all the ministers to attend all functions of Rahul Gandhi.

Those who kept of the functions include Horticulture Minister Shamanur Shivashankarappa, Small Scale Industries Minister Satish Jarkiholi and Textiles Minister Babu Rao Chinchansur, sources in the party said.

Meanwhile, according to  sources Parameshwara has been asked to submit a detailed report at the earliest in this regard.

 Rahul visited the family members of a couple of farmers who committed suicide in Mandya and Haveri on October 9 and 10.
