Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee working president Satish Jarkiholi on Monday said the party will launch a statewide agitation if the government renames the Indira Canteens.
KPCC working president Satish Jarkiholi said that the BJP has given a raw deal to Belagavi in the recent Cabinet expansion.
Ramesh Jarkiholi had stepped down as Water Resources Minister in the BS Yediyurappa cabinet after he was caught in a sex-CD scandal recently.
Jarkiholi said that if one BJP leader exited, another leader from the same party would assume charge and that it would make no difference to the Congress.
Commenting on reports that his brother Ramesh Jarkiholi, former Water Resources Minister, may resign as MLA, Satish said he was not aware of any such development.
Young politicians should struggle to respond to the problems of the poor, downtrodden and weaker sections of society.
“Without elaborating on any welfare measures to help people cope with the ongoing tough times, the government merely announced the package sans any purpose,” alleged Jarkiholi.
The people of the state are worst-hit only due to the government’s negligence and failure to ramp up life-saving medical facilities, he said
Congress candidate for the Belagavi Lok Sabha seat, Satish Jarkiholi, hit out at senior BJP leader Jagadish Shettar for his statement that the former never speaks in the Assembly.

KPCC president DK Shivkumar, former CM Siddaramaiah, party leaders MB Patil and RV Deshpande accompanied Jarkiholi to the DC office for the submission of nomination papers.
Congress spokesperson Laxmi Hebbalkar said Satish is in a different political league and enjoys massive support from people of all castes.
While the BJP is confident of winning Belagavi Lok Sabha seat for the fifth straight time in the coming bypoll, the Congress has taken up the election as a challenge.
