Bengaluru: CM Yediyurappa allots portfolios to new Cabinet minsters

Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Feb 11: The suspense over the allocation of portfolios to the newly inducted ministers has finally ended. Ramesh Jarkiholi,who was insistent on getting water resources ministry which was with D K Shivakumar in the past, and Dr Sudhakar, who had sought medical education portfolio, have got what they wanted.

The ministers who were administered oath had not been given any departments immediately. Even though Ramesh Jarkiholi had said that Shivakumar's entry into Belagavi had inspired him to revolt, he had not publicly said anything about which department he wanted. There were rumours that he was hell bent on getting water resources ministry. It is said that when he had asked the chief minster to allot him the water resources department, he was not given any concrete promise and therefore he chose to remain silent. It is said that Yediyurappa had taken up the demand of Jarkiholi with the high command, and it was agreed to meet his demand, as the other demand of making deputy chief minister was not heeded.

Bengaluru development, which the chief minister has chosen to retain with himself, and home department which has remained with Basavaraj Bommai, have not been given to the new ministers.

The list of portfolio distribution is as follows:

1. Ramesh Jarkiholi - water resources
2. S T Somashekhar - cooperation
3. Byrathi Basavaraj - urban development
4. B C Patil - forest
5. Anand Singh - food and civil supplies
6. Gopalayya - small scale industries
7. Shivaram Hebbar - labour
8. Shrimanth Patil - textiles
9. Dr K Sudhakar - medical education
10. Narayana Gowda - municipal administration, horticulture

    Are they qualified for their jobs as ministers? Politics in India has gone to dogs. Anything is possible after 2014...Modi hai toh mumkin hai. Omit Shah's fate seems to be upto over match! LIC's public issue will spill the beans on street. Almost every working class has invested in policies for tax savings purpose...after LIC was forced by the present government to invest in loss making IDBI Bank stake, people got to know the hide and seek game plan of BJP to destroy LIC 's freedom!
