Bangalore: KPCC President G Parameshwara Tuesday rejected reports that he had issued a notice to the party`s Treasurer Shamanur Shivashankarappa for his failure to attend the officebearers meeting called last month and asserted "it is only a letter".

"Shivashankarappa is like my elder brother. It is not correct to view the letter I wrote to him as a notice", Parameshwara told reporters in the wake of a controversy that broke out over his last month`s communication to the senior leader from the Lingayat community.

Parameshwara said he had written to 22 office-bearers who did not attend the meetings asking them not to skip the next meeting.

Of the 14 meeting of office-bearers held so far, Shivashankarappa has attended only two and he only requested him to make it to the next meeting, he clarified.
