Tumakuru: Food and Civil Supplies Minister Umesh Katti said that he hopes to be Chief Minister of Karnataka someday.


Speaking about the CM’s post, Katti said, “I am 60 and Basanagouda Patil Yatnal is 57, and we still have time to become chief minister as the upper age limit in the BJP is 75 years. Right now, the seat is not vacant but as eight-time MLA, I will aspire for the post in future.”

“I never asked the Chief Minister or party leaders for any particular portfolio as it is the prerogative of the CM to allot portfolios to his colleagues,” said Katti.

Meanwhile, he also raised his voice for a separate North Karnataka state.
