Bengaluru, June 2 (PTI) Karnataka Chief Minister B S

Yediyurappa on Tuesday appointed Ministers Ramesh Jarkiholi, K

Gopalaiah as in-charge of Belagavi and Hassan districts

respectively.

A notification appointing water resources Minister

Jarkiholi as in-charge to his home district of Belagavi and

food and civil supplies Minister Gopalaiah to Hassan was

issued on Tuesday.

Earlier, Industries Minister Jagadish Shettar held

additional charge of Belagavi along with Dharwad district,

while Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister J C Madhuswamy

held the additional charge of Hassan along with Tumakuru

district.

Jarakiholi and Gopalaiah were among those left out of the

list of district-in-charge ministers, when the Chief Minister

made appointments in April.

Both of them were among 10 legislators who defected from

Congress and JD(S), subsequently won the December 2019

bypolls on BJP ticket and became ministers in February this

year.

While Jarkiholi had defected from the Congress, Gopalaiah

was from JD(S).

In April when Yediyurappa appointed district in-charge

Ministers, there were reports that Jarkiholi was unhappy over

him being left out and not being considered for Belagavi,

which is his home district.

However, he subsequently clarified that there was no

disgruntlement.

Interestingly, despite four Ministers from the district -

Laxman Savadi, Shashikala Jolle, Ramesh Jarkiholi and

Shrimanth Patil, the charge of Belagavi was then given to

Shettar, a senior minister, who is from Dharwad to avoid any

friction.

Gopalaiah''s appointment to Hassan is also interesting, as

it is the home turf of Deve Gowda family and JD(S), the party

which he had represented in the past. PTI KSU
