Mandya, Jan 25, 2023: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Tuesday appointed Revenue Minister R Ashoka, the BJP’s Vokkaliga face, as the minister in charge of the Mandya district.
Ashoka will replace Excise Minister K Gopalaiah, who had an additional charge of the Mandya district along with Hassan.
BJP sources said Ashoka was without a district for some time.
“Mandya and Hassan are considered to be the Vokkaliga heartland. Gopalaiah was looking after both districts for the last couple of months,” the sources added.
