BELAGAVI: Stating that the state politics will witness a lot of changes in the next six months, JD(S) state president H D Kumaraswamy said he was in touch with those leaders who are unhappy with the Congress leadership.

He said he is yet to speak to district MLAs Satish Jarkiholi and Umesh Katti. Speaking to the media at Sambra Airport here on Friday, Kumaraswamy said he would stay in Hubballi for a few days in a month to meet party workers from this region. He added he is taking steps to make his party strong in north Karnataka.
Meanwhile, the housewarming ceremony of Kumaraswamy’s new residence in Hubballi will be held on Friday where he along with his wife Anita will perform a special pooja.

He said there is pressure on him from party workers to contest from Belagavi or Vijayapura districts in the next assembly polls. The party will win 35-40 seats from north Karnataka, he said.
He added issues related to north Karnataka, including Mahadayi River sharing issue, would be discussed at winter session scheduled at Belagavi from November 20.
