Belagavi: Once close friend of CM Siddaramaiah, Satish Jarkiholi seems to have changed his mind now. After staying away from CM most of the times after their friendship faded in the last few years, Satish again has decided to camp in Badami to support CM Siddaramaiah who is contesting from the constituency. Satish says, after filing of his nomination papers on Tuesday for Yamakanmardi constituency, he would leave for Badami and strive for the victory of CM.

“I will also head to Chamundeshwari where CM has filed another nomination besides Badami. In both the places, I will work hard for his victory as he has been my political mentor and close friend. Because I have to file nomination papers, I stayed in Belagavi today delaying my visit to Badami. Already, Siddaramaiah spoke to me from Mysuru on taking up a campaign in Badami,” Satish stated.
