Presently, Minister for Primary and Secondary Education S. Suresh Kumar is in charge of Chamarajanagar district.

Mr. Ashok said Mr. Somashekar had not only taken the officials into confidence that had facilitated the progress of the developmental projects, he has also struck a chord with BJP leaders and workers in the district, which has given a boost to party activities in the district.

Mr. Somashekar, who is incidentally one of the newly-joined 17 MLAs from other parties, has won the heart and minds of the party leaders, workers and office-bearers of the party’s units in the district, he claimed.

Mr. Ashok said Mr. Somhekar had taken up the party’s responsibility in the district by touring all the taluks in the district and earning the trust of the party leaders and workers by holding meetings with them.
