Renuka backs Belur

The minister said he would be the “happiest person in the world” if Belur Gopalakrishna is inducted into the Cabinet to represent the Ediga community. Chatting with reporters here on Sunday he said, “Gopalakrishna stood by me during the most decisive moments of my political career. It is my responsibility to support him now.”

He, however, maintained that the final decision will be taken by Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa and other senior leaders. When quizzed about the rape charges levelled against Halappa, he said though similar charges were made against him, he did not go into hiding.


The minister informed that 500 posts of sub inspectors and guards in the Excise Department will be filled shortly.
