CM holds talks with Ambareesh

 In an effort to pacify ‘rebel’ star and Congress MLA M H Ambareesh, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Wednesday met him at his residence and held talks for over two hours.

Sources in the Congress said Siddaramaiah accompanied by Ministers M B Patil and K J George had dinner with Ambareesh. Siddaramaiah is learnt to have tried to convince Ambareesh not to quit the party.

Ambareesh, who is a prominent Vokkaliga leader from Mandya district, had raised a banner of revolt against the chief minister after he was removed from the Cabinet last year. He was also planning to quit as Congress MLA. Recently, he had dropped hints of quitting.
