AICC seeks details of party's properties in Karnataka

The All India Congress Committee has sought details from the party’s State unit about properties it owns across the State.

Sources in the Congress said that Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president G Parameshwara was on Wednesday camping in New Delhi to submit details of the real estate owned by the party in various parts of the State to the high command.
The AICC is collecting details of the party’s properties across all States.
Prime properties 

The 130-year-old party owns two prime properties in Bengaluru: one on Queen’s Road and another on Race Course Road near Ananda Rao Circle. It also owns vacant land as well as buildings in almost all districts.

The AICC has also sought all documents pertaining to the properties.  However, the party has not disclosed reasons why the details are being sought.  To a question whether the high command had plans to commercially exploit the properties by constructing complexes, sources said there were no such plans for now.

Plenary session?

There was speculation that Bengaluru may be the venue for the AICC plenary session. A couple of Central party leaders have evinced interest in holding it here. But no decision has been taken yet.

The KPCC too has not proposed to host the session, sources said. In case the session is held, it would be either in April or May.

The last plenary session held in Bengaluru was when S M Krishna was the chief minister.
Usually, political parties prefer to hold sessions in states where they are in power.
