The former Minister Ramesh Jarkiholi, who is said to be upset over being dropped from the Cabinet, returned to Gokak on Tuesday. He arrived with his son Amarnath and met other family members at his house. He left home on Wednesday morning. He must have left for Bengaluru, said a party worker from Gokak. He did not speak to any party workers, sources close to him said. He was on tour for the last week and was said to be out of reach of the Congress leaders.

His younger brother and Forest Minister Satish Jarkiholi told presspersons in Belagavi on Wednesday that his efforts to meet his brother had not been successful yet. “But I will meet him in one or two days,” he said. “All these days, I have maintained that he will not resign from the Congress. Even now I say that. He will stay in the Congress and work with us for our success in the Lok Sabha polls. But in case he resigns, it will have nothing to do with us. My brothers and I will continue to stay in the Congress,” Mr. Satish Jarkiholi said.
