Mangaluru, May 21: The demand for deputy chief minister’s position to North Karnataka in the JDS-Congress combine is becoming stronger. This demand is justifiable. If the North Karnataka needs equal share in the development, it should get the post of deputy chief minister.

In the same way, Coastal Karnataka is also important place for the Congress. Interestingly, the Congress has only three MLAs from the entire Coastal Karnataka and out of 13 constituencies in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts, the Congress has got only one seat. In the last Assembly election, the Congress had 10 MLAs, but this time it has reduced to one.

It is said that Hindutva and Modi wave has worked behind this result. If it is true, UT Khader is the only person who swam against these two waves to become MLA. With this, Khader has saved the face of the Congress in the Coastal area.

Facing all challenges, Khader has won for the fourth time in a row. For this, the Congress has to encourage him. In order to induce confidence among party workers, Khader should be given an important portfolio. In the last government, Khader has drawn the attention of the entire state through his work and efficiency as the Minister of Food and Civil Supplies department. He is able to handle any portfolio if given.

His plus point is that he takes people of all religions together. Even in the election, he has taken people from all communities into confidence due to which, he was supported by all sections of people. For this reason, he should be given an important portfolio as the party would require him more.
