Bengaluru: Bharat Hegde (60), son of former chief minister Doddamane Ramakrishna Hegde, died in Vikram hospital in the city on Thursday, Feb 13.
He is said to have been suffering from liver cancer and was under treatment over the past days. He passed away around 4-30 pm
Born in 1964, Bharat stuck to the family occupation of agriculture as desired by his father. Even though he had chances to enter politics during his father’s time or after his death, he resisted all temptations of office.
However, the BJP roped him into politics as a strategic move in the last decade. But he did not stay for long.
