Elected for the fourth time with a win margin of over 2 lakh votes from BJP-R S S stronghold of Dharwad, the longstanding R S S functionary’s political career took off back in 1992 when he participated, along with Uma Bharati in the Hubballi Idgah Maidan conflict in 1992, which led to a communal flare-up. He was state BJP president from 2012 to 2016 when the party’s five-year government ended amid serious allegations of graft, and scandals. He is believed to be best placed to replace the late H N Ananth Kumar as a bridge between the Centre and Karnataka, as he was the former’s understudy. Ananth Kumar’s brother Nand and Joshi’s brother Gopal are business partners and both families are very close.
