Former minister M B Patil has once again raised the North-South disparity when it comes to allocation of prime positions by the Congress.

Patil, who is miffed with the party over not being given a Cabinet berth, told reporters in Belagavi that more number of Congress legislators (41) had been elected from North Karnataka, but only five of them had been made ministers.

In contrast, 36 legislators have been elected from South Karnataka, but nine of them have been made ministers. All the prime portfolios like Home, Water Resources, Rural Development and Panchayat Raj have gone to legislators from South Karnataka.  Important positions like Deputy Chief Minister, Speaker of the Assembly, Chairman of the Council too have gone to legislators from the South.

“This disparity should go and the imbalance should be set right,” he said. Patil said the post of chairman should have gone to S R Patil. M B Patil indicated that he will be writing to Congress chief Rahul Gandhi in this regard soon.
