Legislator Basanagouda Patil Yatnal has predicted “crucial change” in addition to Cabinet expansion, by Sankranthi. The festival falls on January 14, 2021.

“The Sun changes his path after Sankranthi and ‘Uttarayana’ begins from that day. Therefore, North Karnataka stands to benefit after Sankranthi,” Yatnal told reporters here on Friday.

He said that Union Home Minister Amit Shah is scheduled to visit Vijayapura on January 16 and there will be a “major change” even before his arrival. The “injustice” caused to Vijayapura all these years will be set right, he claimed.

He said that the government should not hurry for reopening schools in the state. “I am also the head of an educational institution. These institutions can somehow tide over this year’s loss. But, there should not be any adverse effect on the health of children,” he said.
