Dharwad, By Hubli Express News: Amidst a backdrop of discontentment, Yalaburga MLA and former minister Basavaraj Rayaraddi hosted a meeting at his Dharwad farmhouse with ministers Dr. Sharanprakash Patil and Dr. MC Sudhakar.

During the interaction with the press on Monday, Rayaraddi made it clear that he remains loyal to the Congress party and has no intention of switching to the BJP, citing his commitment to certain principles and ideologies.

In response to inquiries regarding his rumored frustration with the Congress and potential BJP affiliation, Rayaraddi emphasized his unwavering dedication to the principles he holds dear.

His recent letter to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah expressing dissatisfaction with officials’ responsiveness had sparked speculation.

He highlighted the significant resources available for skill development and a prominent engineering college in his constituency, emphasizing the need for their assistance to ensure these assets function effectively.

Rayaraddi concluded that this meeting was entirely centered on developmental concerns and did not involve discussions on political matters.
