Bengaluru: Forest Minister Satish Jarkiholi, following Ramesh Jarkiholi resignation from the state Assembly said that it was expected and Ramesh had been planning to resign from the last six months. Addressing presspersons with this regard he said, " This move of Ramesh does not affect our party or the government. Even if other one or two people resign, it will not do any harm to the government." Meanwhile, Home Minister MB Patil said there is no threat to the coalition government in the state, "Ramesh is a dear of mine friend. I will soon speak to Ramesh on the issue.As we know it is a game plan of BJP. There is no threat to the coalition government," Patil further added. Anand Singh and Ramesh Jarkiholi's resignation comes at a time when cracks are seeming to appear in the Janata Dal (Secular) and Congress coalition in the state. However, the two parties have repeatedly said there is no threat to the alliance and the government would complete its full term. In the recently held Lok Sabha polls, Congress and the JD(S) failed to make a mark with the BJP bagging 25 of the 28 seats along with an Independent backed by it leaving just one seat each to the coalition partners.
