Belagavi: He may have quit as AICC Secretary in protest over not being accommodated in the state Cabinet, but Mr Satish Jarkiholi assures that the  prevailing uncertainty in the state Congress will not stretch too long and  the coalition government will not suffer. 

“The problems in the  Congress will be overcome through  discussion with the party's top leaders,” he added.
