The process of nominating party leaders to various boards and corporations is expected to begin shortly.

According to KPCC sources, AICC general secretary and in-charge of the party’s affairs in the state Digvijay Singh has written to KPCC president Dr G Parameshwara and Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to initiate this process. A group of party workers had met Singh during his recent visit to the State and submitted a memorandum seeking to speed up the process, the sources added.

According to them, 15,000 party workers have appealed to the KPCC to consider their names for appointment to various boards and corporations.

There are about 70 boards and corporations, and another over 2,500 directors’ posts that could be filled with party workers or legislators.

“While the chief minister is in favour of taking up the appointment (process) only after the Lok Sabha elections, the party workers are mounting pressure on the state government to do it immediately,” the KPCC sources said.
