Krishna Byre Gowda, Patil made Cabinet ministers

In another shrewd move, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah elevated Krishna Byre Gowda and Sharan Prakash Patil as Cabinet rank ministers. So far, they were ministers of state for agriculture and medical education respectively.

With Vokkaligas unhappy over not getting berths in the reshuffle, it seems Siddaramaiah has adopted appeasing tactics by making Gowda a Cabinet minister. Patil, a Lingayat MLA from Sedam of Kalaburagi, is a known close associate Mallikarjun Kharge, MP. A proposal to make them Cabinet ministers went from the government to the Governor on June 18. A notification making the changes was issued on Monday.
