Reddy brothers have no place in ministry

In a Cabinet less than four days of the formation of his Council of Ministers,Karnataka CM D.V. Sadananda Gowda on Thursday introduced five more MLAs into his Cabinet.
A town of south-central India north-northwest of Bangalore Reddy brothers G. Janardhan Reddy and G. Karunakara Reddy, mining magnates, expectedly, were not admitted in the cabinet minister.

BJP's central leadership has decided to take a call on their demand at a later date than turning down their request at present. Incidentally, party president Nitin Gadkari will be in Bellary on Friday to attend a private programme hosted by the Reddy brothers and Mr. Sriramulu.

Four of the five legislators joined the Cabinet are relatively new entrants to the party. They are: Raju Gowda (also known as Narasimha Nayak), who represents the Surpur constituency; C.P. Yogeshwar (Channapatna); Balachandra Jharkiholi (Arabhavi, Belgaum); and Anand Asnotikar (Karwar).
But there is no place in cabinet minister to the Reddy brothers.
