Former minister, Congress rebel leader, Ramesh Jarakiholi, an MLA from Gokak of Belagavi district has decided to remain neutral in the election. This comes as a big shocker to the Congress but brings a sigh of relief to incumbent MP and BJP leader Suresh Angadi.
According to the sources, Ramesh, who held a meeting with his close confidants at his Gokak residence decided to remain neutral. "He directed his supporters to work for the party, candidate of their choice," told his supporters.
This decision comes as a shocker to the Congress, which is trying to consolidate its base in the Belagavi to snatch the constituency from the BJP. Congress led by minister Satish Jarakiholi, MLA Lakshmi Hebbalkar are carrying out an organized campaign.
