Belagavi: Though the government might be breathing a sigh of relief over sugarcane growers taking back the protest ahead of the Winter Legislature Session, it could face another round of problem on Jarikiholi and DK Shivakumar.
Farmers who were on Indefinite stir since ten days took back the protest with the discussion with minister DK Shivakumar. Minister who is on district tour on Friday visited the farmers’ protesting venue and succeeded in farmers taking back the protest. Kumaraswamy led government was very much worried about the farmers and wanted the issue to be solved before the sessions scheduled here from Dec 10.
Minister Shivakumar known as a troubleshooter in Congress had solved the problem in a single meeting which may make red eyes of Jarikiholis as they could not solve the problem. However, not only Yamakanamaradi Congress MLA Satish Jarikiholi but his brother minister Ramesh Jarikiholi did not attempted to solve the problem.
The government had to face a tough time with the entry of Shivakumar in favour of MLA Laxmi Hebbalkar for PLD bank election. The defeat of Jarikiholis in the election is being treated as a major setback to them and moreover, it is being considered as Hebbalkar is the first person to won against them.
Minister Jarikiholi had objected the interference of DKS in the district politics for which there was a threat to the government of losing the power. In such a situation, the farmer’s withdrawal of the protest with the interference of Shivakumar may be made Jarikiholis Red Faced which may land the government into trouble.
