TUMAKURU: Small Scale Industries Minister Ramesh Jarkiholi inviting KPCC president Dr G Parameshwara to contest from Raibag constituency in the 2018 assembly polls has set the ball rolling. Parameshwara’s supporters  from Koratagere have started urging him to contest again promising that they will ensure his victory this time.

Conceding to the pressure, Parameshwara has called a meeting at Gollahalli near here, said Puttahariappa, a staunch supporter.Members of Chalavadi Mahasabha, the caste from which Parameshwara hails from, led by Heggere Krishnappa too urged him not to leave Koratagere as the community’s representation would be at stake.

Otherwise, he should bring his nephew Anand into politics and treat him as his successor, they suggested.
But his detractors like Mallekavu Suresh suggest that Parameshwara better leave Koratagere as he remained inaccessible to the people. “He could not attend to councillor Purushottham’s problems. Instead JD(S) MLA P Sudhakara Lal did it,” he said.

Anturaiah, a family friend of Parameshwara, said though Anand had a liking for politics he had kept himself away as he is afraid of his uncle (Parameshwara) advising against it. “Parameshwara’s only son Sean is into business and is averse to politics, said sources.
