MYSURU: Former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda and deputy chairman of Karnataka Planning Board C M Ibrahim shared the dais at the farewell function of outgoing University of Mysore V-C K S Rangappa here on Tuesday.

After Ibrahim left the JD(S) along with Siddaramaiah a decade ago, this is the first time the duo came together. This could be the indication that Ibrahim is trying to come back to the JD(S).

Looking at Ibrahim, Gowda said, “My friend Ibrahim nowadays appears to be desperate, unhappy and lost hope. He should come out of this and hope for the best.”

There are people who conspired to bring down the glory of the University and tarnish Rangappa’s image, he said. “If they go around the campus of University of Mysore and Karnataka State Open University they will come to know the vision of Rangappa,” he added.

Further lauding Rangappa, he said hailing from a poor farmer’s family, his achievements are tremendous. He suggested him to continue in the research and achieve more in science sector.

In his reply, Ibrahim said he was not desperate, whereas time had come to take a decision due to the change in circumstances and he would announce his decision after Sankranti.
