A visionary statesman

He is grown as prominent statesman and gained confidence of people cutting across the party line by following footstep of his father and popular, pro-poor Chief Minister Sri B S Yediyurappa, the son of the soil.

Several national leaders have emerged in the soil of Shivamogga, the gateway of Malnad region. Our proud Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa is one among them. Raghavendra is also emerging as a top Parliamentarian and engaged in the path of development like his father.
