BELGAUM: BJP state president Prahlad Joshi on Thursday said that neither he nor former chief minister Jagadish Shettar are aware of any news about the party nominating Union Commerce and Industries Minister Nirmala Sitharaman as a Rajya Sabha MP from the state.    

The Dharwad MP told reporters that the state BJP is yet to prepare the list of its candidates for the Rajya Sabha polls and no discussions were held in this regard. Talking about the state’s representation in the Narendra Modi Cabinet, Joshi said he expects a few more berths for the state in the next Cabinet expansion. Ministers Sadananda Gowda, Ananth Kumar and G M Siddeshwara know the state better and can bring more projects to the state, he said. Venkaiah Naidu is a Rajya Sabha MP from the state and has got the Urban Development ministry. So the state’s urban centres can expect more from the Centre, he said. He said efforts to complete pending projects like laying railway track between Hubli and Ankola, Kalasa-Banduri Nala would be given priority.
