TDP MP Ramesh elected to Parliament's PAC
TDP MP CM Ramesh was elected to the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) of Parliament today after the opposition unitedly voted for him.
Ramesh, whose party has only six members in the Upper House, got maximum 106 votes out of the three candidates who were in contention.
"It is a victory of morality against arrogance," Ramesh said.
Sources said the entire opposition, including the Congress, supported Ramesh's candidature.
The PAC comprises of not more than 22 members, of which 15 are from the Lok Sabha, seven from the Rajya Sabha.
MPs from both the houses elected members of the PAC from among themselves through the election.
It is formed every year and its chairman is appointed by the speaker of the Lok Sabha.
