Amit Prabhakar Kore— son of senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader and Rajya Sabha member Prabhakar Kore — will plunge into politics by joining the Congress, and not his father’s party today at about 11 am. It must also be recalled that Prabhakar Kore was also in the Congress for a long time before joining BJP. The INC could field in Amit from Chikkodi Parliamentary constituency against Katti.
Prabhakar Kore who was a Congress Loyalist jumped to the BJP in June 2008 when he was denied a MLA ticket for Chikkodi-Sadalga.
Prabhakar Kore was in the Congress from 1976 (upto 2008). He was made member of the Rajya Sabha in 1990 to 1996.
He was nominated to the Legislative Council in 2000-2006.
June 2008 Elected to the Rajya Sabha.
When the Chikkodi constituency was made a general segment and its map was redrawn by including some parts of Sadalga into it to form the new “Chikkodi-Sadalga” constituency, he saw an opportunity to enter the Assembly from his home constituency. But, the Congress dashed his dream.
