Karnataka Congress infighting: Satish Jarkiholi to become CM for sure, says Cong MLA

Belagavi, Nov 21 (IANS): Congress MLA Vishwas Vasanth Vaidya, representing Saundatti Yellamma in the district, on Tuesday stirred a fresh controversy by claiming that PWD Minister Satish Jarkiholi will undoubtedly become the chief minister.

While speaking at Yaragatti in the Belagavi district, MLA Vaidya categorically stated that he was hundred per cent sure that Minister Jarkiholi will become the chief minister.

He remarked, "Jarkiholi is emerging as a promising leader, and people are looking forward to seeing him in the post of chief minister."

MLA Vaidya, who aligns himself with the camp of Jarkiholi, has sparked a debate within the party with his statements.

Jarkiholi is a popular leader among the oppressed classes and is recognized as one of the prominent leaders in the north Karnataka region.

The Jarkiholi brothers, who have become influential figures in both the Congress and BJP parties in Karnataka, are accused of running a fiefdom in the Belagavi district.

Minister Jarkiholi openly expressed his displeasure over the interference of DyCM D.K. Shivakumar in the affairs of the district.

DyCM Shivakumar is supporting Minister for Women and Child Welfare Laxmi Hebbalkar, who challenges the supremacy of the Jarkiholi brothers in Belagavi.

Minister Hebbalkar's brother, Channaraj Holihatti, is the Congress MLC.

Minister Satish Jarkiholi had stated that he would claim the CM post in the state in 2028. His remarks came a day after the Congress imposed a gag order on party members regarding statements related to power-sharing.

    Who is this Jarkiholi? Is he not the one who deserted Congress earlier and came back when he was ditched by BJP? Why should one even give any importance to such people?

    I think this Satish Jarakiholi will spoil the unity in the state . According to me he is not having leadership qualities. Some unknown hand is encouraging him.

    It is time that Congress highcommand takes some stringent action against this MLA. The least punishment to be meted out to him is to suspend him for some months. Unless this is done, some other MLA will begin to wag his tongue. Indiscipline in the party was the main reaon for the weakening of the party in the past and the same malady should not afflict ot again now, when Congress is gradually regaining public support.
