Widespread resentment as Halady, Angara deprived of cabinet berths

Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Aug 21, 2019: The cabinet expansion of the B S Yediyurappa led BJP government in the state, has led to disgruntlement among several aspirants for ministerial berths prominently S Angara, MLA of Sullia and Halady Srinivas Shetty, MLA of Kundapur.   There is a growing resentment that the party was neglecting its dedicated  soldiers.



Halady who is a five time  MLA from Kundapur had lost the ministerial position in the last minute in 2008 following which he had quit the BJP and contested as an independent in 2013 resulting in a thumping win.

However during the 2018 assembly election he had rejoined the BJP and contested from the party registering a fifth win. Halady being a prominent member of the Bunt community, not including  him in the cabinet has led to anguish among his Bunt community.

Even S Angara, a six time MLA from Sullia has been deprived of a cabinet berth. So is the case of three time Karkala MLA Sunil Kumar.

 Sources revealed that  MLA Angara was almost certain of a cabinet berth  that  over 300 supporters and family members had left for Bengaluru. But when  they  got the news that Angara’s name  was not in the list of  ministers, all of them decided to stay back in Mysuru instead of Bengaluru.

The Sullia unit of BJP has convened a meeting today to discuss the issue.
