Mangaluru, Jan 13, 2021: Six time MLA from Sullia constituency S Angara is all set to be a new minister in the cabinet of Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa.
The name of Angara was in the list of seven legislators announced by Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa today. The new ministers in the expanded cabinet will be taking oath today. Angara said a ministerial position would help him better serve the people of his constituency who have elected him for six successive terms. He also stated that he would accept whichever portfolio was assigned to him.
It may be recalled here that the supporters of the MLA were a great deal disappointed when Angara did not get a cabinet berth last time.
Along with Angara, MLCs C P Yogeshwar, M T B Nagaraj, R Shanker, MLAs Murugesh Nirani, Aravind Limbavali and Umesh Katti will be the new ministers.
