BENGALURU: Congress worker and a close aide of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, K Marigowda, has gotten off with a slap on his wrist as the KPCC on Friday announced that his suspension has been revoked. His appointment to a board or corporation is expected to be announced soon.
Marigowda, known for his proximity to the CM, was caught on camera verbally abusing and threatening the then Mysuru Deputy Commissioner C Shikha in front of Siddaramaiah. Shikha later lodged a police complaint against him and Marigowda went absconding. He later surrendered before a court. Only after much of all this brouhaha did the Congress suspend him.
Though the order was released on Friday, the order revoking his suspension seemed to have been issued on October 25.
Recently, Marigowda and his supporters trooped into the Chief Minister’s house in Bengaluru and demanded that his suspension be revoked so that he could be accommodated on boards and corporations. Though Siddaramaiah had argued with the party high command to accommodate dissatisfied legislators, who were not able to get ministerial berths, a fair share has also been made available for party workers.
