BENGALURU: The Cabinet, which met here on Wednesday, discussed in length about the strategies to be adopted to counter the Opposition, which is determined to attack the government on the Arkavathy denotification row in the upcoming Legislative Session.

According to sources, the issue came up for discussion informally after the Cabinet finished discussing listed agenda and senior officers left the venue.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s close aides in the Cabinet, including H C Mahadevappa, Srinivas Prasad, R V Deshpande, Shivaraj Tangadagi,  H Anjaneya, Umashree and others raised the issue and strongly advocated to nail down the Opposition by turning the tables on them over the same issue.

Siddaramaiah has reportedly urged his Cabinet colleagues to come prepared with updated information pertaining to their respective departments and take on the Opposition in the floor of the Houses.

Some of the ministers have also aired their ire against Governor Vajubhai Rudabhai Vala, who has sought clarification on the appointments to the Karnataka Public Service Commission.

The informal meeting lasted for over an hour.
