Bengaluru: “My brother, former minister Ramesh Jarakiholi is now alone. No MLA is supporting him, but still, he will continue his efforts to topple the government. However, I don’t think he will succeed,” stated forest minister Satish Jarakiholi.
Speaking to the reporters in the city, he stated that he is still trying to convince his brother Ramesh, who is not listening.
Refuting the allegations levelled by Ramesh against him, he stated that Ramesh is not a kid. “I never advised him against attending the cabinet meeting. I never asked him to stay away from the party and organisation related works. He was dropped from the cabinet for his anti-party works. How am I responsible for this,” he questioned.
He also hit out at major irrigation minister DK Shivakumar for calling him as Sahukar. “DKShi must react to statements after confirming everything. He is giving baseless statements only on basis of assumptions,” he said.
