Bengaluru: Hours after changing the district in-charge ministers for Koppal and Vijayanagar districts, Karnataka government cancelled the order notifying appointments on Saturday. Following this, has drawn criticism from opposition parties.
On Saturday morning, the government issued a notification appointing Anand Singh as the in-charge minister for the Vijayanagar district and Shashikala Jolle as the in-charge minister for Koppal. By evening, the order was revoked.
