On my behalf, Dr Yatindra will take care of the constituency,” said Siddaramaiah, officially introducing Yatindra as his successor.The CM said that Yatindra would fill the vacuum created by his son Rakesh, who was emerging as Siddaramaiah’s successor. Rakesh had been quite active in the constituency. He had been receiving representations from the public, addressing various complaints and other issues.
