Kalaburagi: Minister for social welfare, Priyank Kharge has been appointed chairman of the Cabinet sub-committee  for overseeing the implementation of  Article 371(J) of the Constitution,  giving special status to the backward Hyderabad Karnataka region.

While Mr Kharge is also the Minister in charge of Kalaburagi district in H-K,  the other members of the sub-committee are  Ministers D K Shivakumar, who is in charge of Ballari,  Bandeppa  Kashempur, who is in charge of Bidar ,  Krishna Byregowda, Rajashekhar Patil Humnabad (Yadagir) and R Shankar (Koppal).

 

Former Minister, H K Patil headed the sub-committee in the Siddaramaiah government. But as he was from  Gadag district, there was resentment among a section of leaders against him heading it and they had lobbied for a minister from the H-K region to take over as its chairman,  arguing that it  stood to gain from the change.

Meanwhile, a delegation from the Hyderabad Karnataka Abhivrudhi Horata Samiti, headed by former Minister, Vaijanth Patil has decided to  meet  Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy on September 6 to discuss the issues concerning Hyderabad Karnataka and ways to develop it.
