Santosh Lad in House after one-year gap

Santosh Lad, Congress member from Kalaghatagi and former minister, made it to the Assembly on Monday. He had kept off from the House for the last one year.

Lad, a mining businessman, had to resign as minister just days before the winter session of the legislature commenced in 2013, after the BJP charged that he was involved in illegal mining. In a chat with reporters, Lad said, “I am pained by the developments that took place last year. Hence, I had not participated in the deliberations of the Assembly. I did not even go to my constituency. But I ensured that all works were implemented.”

JD(S) MLAs H C Balakrishna, Mallikarjun Khuba and G T Deve Gowda, who were absent from the House last week, were present on Monday. However, another JD(S) member Zameer Ahmed was absent.
