I am not willing to take up the ministerial berth offered to me: Karthikeyan

Thiruvananthapuram: Speaker G.Karthikeyan has informed the Congress high command Thursday that he was not willing to take up the ministerial berth offered to him, as part of the new compromise formula. However, he would continue as MLA.

The meeting held at New Delhi Thursday had worked out a new compromise formula under which both Piravom MLA Anoop Jacob and Muslim league leader Manjalamkuzhi Ali would be handed ministerial berths.

One of the four IUML ministers, who will have to resign to accommodate Ali in the state cabinet, would be fielded for the post of Kerala Assembly Speaker.
