Early life[edit]

Public life[edit]

He started his public life in the early 1980s and his major boost came when he was appointed by the then chief minister of Karnataka, Ramakrishna Hegde in 1987 as chairman of the committee to study the reorganisation of districts.[2] The report was implemented by J.H. Patel in 1997-98. He is considered instrumental in the creation of Bagalkot district, which was created after separating it from Bijapur. Parvatagouda Gaddigoudar was nominated to The Legislative Council of Karnataka in 1988. However in 1994, he was unable to secure ticket from Janata Dal and contested the elections to the Assembly as an independent candidate.

Just before the elections for the 14th Lok Sabha, Gaddigoudar had denied allegations that he would be leaving All India Progressive Janata Dal (a splinter group of Janata Dal with allegiance to Ramakrishna Hegde) to join the Bharatiya Janata Party.[3] However just before the elections, he did join the Bharatiya Janata Party with his followers and got the party’s nomination from Bagalkot Lok Sabha Constituency. He entered the 14th Lok Sabha by securing 459,451 votes while his nearest rival, R.S. Patil of Indian National Congress, secured 292,068. [4]
