Congress ticket sale charges rejected

G ParameshwarBangalore : Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee president G Parameshwara said he was unaware of any Delhi leaders coming to Bangalore to probe into allegations of sale of party tickets.

When contacted by Deccan Herald, he said, “I have no idea of anybody’s visit. But I welcome any sort of inquiry, because I have nothing to hide. Total transparency has been maintained in the selection of candidates.”

He said it is but natural for those who have not been able to get party tickets to make all sorts of allegations against those who were in the selection panel (meaning himself and Siddaramaiah). Even the high command has made its own assessment of candidates which were recommended from the State, he added.

“For Kittur in Belgaum, we have fielded former minister D B Inamdar. He has been with the party for decades. But a person who has produced the movie ‘Sangolli Rayanna’ was aspiring for the ticket from Kittur. The only qualification he has is that he is a movie producer. Can that be the yardstick for selecting a candidate? The producer’s supporters have made some wild allegations that the ticket has been sold. If the charges are not backed by evidence, I will be initiating disciplinary action.”
