    Moily said, " I have told G. Parameshwara not to give a ticket to my son."

    "We will campaign for the candidate chosen by the party," Moily said.

    Also, Moily said the issue of a controversial tweet by his son is a closed chapter.

    It may be recalled that the Congress party was embarrassed by a controversial tweet by Harsha Moily.

    Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) had issued a notice to Harsha Moily for his tweet alleging money power in the selection of candidates for the Assembly elections had embarrassed the party.
