Bangalore: Former minister P G R Sindhya,
who recently rejoined JDS, was on Wednesday appointed the Working
President of the party`s Karnataka unit.
JDS national President and former prime minister H D
Devegowda told reporters here that the appointment was made in
consultation with state unit President and his son H D
Kumaraswamy, a former Chief Minister.
Sindhya had quit JDS on the eve of 2008 assembly polls
and joined BSP, which failed to make a mark in the state,
before his recent re-entry into the party.
Gowda, who delayed the release of the list of new office
bearers, waiting for his son`s arrival, announced the Working
President`s appointment but witheld the names of others.
Kumaraswamy could not join his father at the press meet
as fog delayed his flight from Delhi, party sources said.
Gowda said his party would organise a state-level rally
of farmers next month.
