Mining baron and former minister of Karnataka Gali Janardhan Reddy is contemplating to quit politics. Gali seems to have decided not to contest direct elections. He said to have divulged the same to his close aides.
As Karnataka state elections are due in a year, all eyes are on Gali. It was buzzed that Gali would contest once again and would be active in BJP in Ballari, Rayachur districts and help the party win there. But contrary to this, Gali is contemplating to say bid adieu to direct politics.
While it’s not clear whether he would continue in politics indirectly, it’s learnt that the businessman-politician wants to stay away from electoral politics at the moment.
Gali had been jailed in illegal mining case in 2015 and walked out of jail only one year ago. His daughter’s lavish wedding too stroked controversy for its high spend. Looks like, Gali is unhappy over the prevailing political conditions within and outside party. Gali, who is a staunch follower of Sushma Swaraj, isn’t comfortable with Modi and Amit Shah’s leadership. Let’s wait and see whether Gali would change his mind or not.
