Induct Yogish Bhat into Cabinet: GSB leaders

The District Federation of Gowda Saraswath Brahmin Organisations has urged Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa to induct Mangalore City South MLA N Yogish Bhat into the State cabinet.

Addressing a press meet here on Monday, Kumble Narasimha Prabhu, representing Kanara Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said the GSB community has been totally disappointed because of the fact that Bhat was not given any ministership who is being elected to the Assembly for the fourth consecutive term. “The GSB community has rendered much service to the strengthening of BJP in the coastal districts, hence it should be given proper representation in the government,” he said. Ministership was not given to Bhat owing to certain pressures, he alleged.

GSB community leaders Basthi Vaman Shenoy, Umanath Mallya, Madhav Kamath, Ganapathi Pai among others were present in the press meet.

The Federation had planned a protest in front of the district BJP office on June 4. However, by Tuesday, the GSB leaders have decided to drop the protest dharna and are planning to take a delegation to the chief minister and the party netas to convince about their urge.

A release from the federation said the protest has been cancelled in the backdrop of the cancel of party chief D V Sadananda Gowda’s visit.
