He said, “Portfolios can be changed during the reshuffle. I had served as Muzrai minister twice. It is not wrong to have a desire to be the Rural Development minister. The portfolio has been given to our senior leader K S Eshwarappa and we will work with him.” 

“Shashikala Jolle will serve as Muzrai Minister. I will give her a few suggestions,” he added. On the weekend curfew, he said guidelines must be followed as the positivity rate is increasing.
