Bengaluru: Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and KPCC president G Parameshwara are scheduled to meet the Congress chief Sonia Gandhi in Delhi on Monday to finalise names for nominating members to the Legislative Council and appointing heads to various boards and corporations. KPCC working president Dinesh Gundu Rao will also accompany the leaders who are scheduled to hold a meeting with AICC general secretary in-charge of Karnataka Digvijaya Singh and Congress Scion Rahul Gandhi before meeting Sonia Gandhi.

It is believed that the leaders have made a list of candidates for the nominations. There are three vacancies to be filled under the nomination category in the Upper House of the legislature, while the ruling party can nominate heads to about 72 boards and corporations of the government.

Names of noted writers Baraguru Ramachandrappa and K Marulasiddappa, C M Lingappa, G C Chandrashekar and K P Nanjundi, are making the rounds for nomination to Upper House of the Legislature.

It is said that the CM who is facing allegations of unceremoniously weeding out several leaders from his cabinet during the recent cabinet reshuffle, is likely to pacify the angry lot by nominating several of them to the boards and corporations.

This apart, the leaders are likely to discuss on the by-election to the Nanjangud Assembly constituency following resignation of V Srinivas Prasad as Congress MLA recently. As per sources in the party corridors, the CM is keen on fielding Sunil Bose, son of Minister for Public Works H C Mahadevappa.
