Chikkamagalur: Minister for Urban Development and Haj Roshan Baig has been appointed as the district in-charge minister of Chikkamagalur from immediate effect.
The change of guard comes in place after Dr G Parameshwar stepped down from the position of Home Minister and also as Chikkamagalur District in-charge minister to become KPCC Chief recently.
Baig is the third District in-charge minister of chikkamagalur in the Siddaramaiah government. Former minister for Sports Abhayachandra Jain had held the position before Dr Parameshwar. However, Jain was dropped by Siddaramaiah from his cabinet.
