Belagavi: Congress party leader Lakhan Jarkiholi has agreed to campaign against his brother Satish in upcoming Lok Sabha bypolls in Belagavi.
Lakhan said, “I have decided to support BJP candidate Mangala Angadi. They have also urged me to join BJP”
It is said that leaders including Jagadish Shettar, Byrathi Basavaraj, Umesh Katti, and Annasaheb Jolle had met Lakhan at his residence in Gokak in a bid to persuade him to join the party.
However, said a final call will be taken on joining the party after he consults his brothers Ramesh and Balachandra, who are currently BJP MLAs.
This comes in wake of criticism against Karnataka Congress chief DK Shivakumar for his alleged involvement in the alleged sex scandal.
