Prime News, Karnataka, Bengaluru, October 19:- Madhu Bangarappa, a Janata Dal (Secular) leader and son of former chief minister late Sarekoppa Bangarappa is likely to join the Congress party soon.
After losing the Lok Sabha by-election from Shivamogga Madhu Bangarappa had remained far from JD(S) and now MLC R Prasanna Kumar has confirmed the development and said that Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president D K Shivakumar has given a nod to Madhu Bangarappa’s entry to the Congress.
It may be recalled that senior Congress leader Kagodu Thimmappa had met Madhu several months ago and tried to woo him to the Congress party. However, Madhu Bangarappa had then said that he was not ready.
He had also said that as the son of a former chief minister his surname is his big asset and he would let the party know when he resigns. (Inputs: Agencies, NGB)
