Time is on my side, says Satish Jarkiholi

M. Madan Mohan

The former Minister is working to spread the AHIND movement



Satish Jarkiholi

HUBLI: At 40, he is in his second term as a member of the Legislative Council. Satish Jarkiholi, one of the two Ministers dropped along with the former Deputy Chief Minister, Siddaramaiah, is a politician, who is not in a hurry and is prepared to bide his time.

Though all the while his activities were confined to his native district of Belgaum in general and his hometown of Gokak in particular, Mr. Jarkiholi was noticed when he was chosen as the Minister of State for Textiles in the Dharam Singh Ministry. His raising the voice over the inadequacy of funds for the Ministry also caused some ripples.

But he got the State-level focus during the first divisional conference of AHIND (Alphasankhyakaru, Hindulidavaru and Dalitaru) organised in Hubli last month. As the chairman of the reception committee, Mr. Jarkiholi proved his mettle by the manner in which the conference was organised.

Operating for the first time away from his native district, Mr. Jarkiholi ensured that it was one of the biggest conventions of the oppressed. The Nehru Maidan, where the conference was held, overflowed with people from different parts of the State and region. Those who had come to Hubli returned without any hitch as every detail had been meticulously worked out.

Mr. Jarkiholi did not prefer to be in Bangalore when a move was being made to drop Mr. Siddaramaiah and himself. He sent in his resignation letter to Mr. Siddaramaiah saying that he would abide by whatever decision taken. Instead, he preferred to address the problem caused by rain in his place.

Mr. Jarkiholi is the second of the five sons of Laxmanrao Jarkiholi, a liquor magnate in the region. They belong to the Nayaka community.

"I have lot of time with me. I can wait to come back into politics on my own," Mr. Satish Jarkiholi is believed to have told his close followers, after he was dropped from the Ministry. He is now busy working out details for spreading the AHIND movement in the State.
