Bengaluru: G T Devegowda who had adhered to his demand for change of ministry from the higher education portfolio he was given, was at last compelled to relent on Thursday June 21. 


The minister had straightforwardly said that having being qualified only till eighth standard, he was not sufficiently skilled for taking care of the said ministry. Devegowda had not taken care of work identifying with his ministry, and was returning the files, saying that some new minister would deal with them. 

Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy succeeded in persuading Devegowda on Thursday evening that looking for some other division in a coalition environment may give rise to unnecessary controversies. It is said Devegowda was finally happy with the offer given by Kumaraswamuy to make him district in-charge minister for Mysuru.

Sources said that Devegowda will authoritatively enter the room assigned to him in Vidhana Soudha on Friday June 22 by offering puja.
