'KPCC chief's post not an office of profit'

 Home Minister G Parameshwara has said that the post of president of Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee is not an office of profit. 

He was reacting to a petition filed in the court seeking his resignation as MLC on the grounds that he held an office of profit. “I am holding the post of president of Siddartha Education Society since my father’s days. I am not drawing salary even for this post.” he said while interacting with the media.

He said that the AICC would decide on the candidates for Rajya Sabha elections while the nominees for Legislative Council polls would be selected by the KPCC.

Asked whether any film actress would be nominated as MLC, Parameshwara said it the decision for fielding candidates to Rajya Sabha elections would be taken by the AICC and nominating to the legislative council would be decided by the KPCC. “The party has to take call on nominating actors Ramya or Bhavya,” he said.
