He presided over the Virasaiva Nationalist Conference held at Bijapur. At his instance the conference adopted a resolution expressing its loyalty to the Congress. He is one of the luminaries in the firmament of Nationalist Lingayats. For many years he is a member of the K.P.C.C and the District Congress committee. He is elected to the Assembly from the Belgaum South.

His career is an unceasing record of dispassionate labours. Under adverse circumstances he has translated his will into action so formidably. In 1920 Karnatak was the storm center of the Congress activities and the Non Brahmin movement. Mr. Jakati, a lingayat by birth but a patriot by instinct, bitterly denounce the non-Brahmin movement as reactionary, retrograde and highly detrimental to the very vital interests of the Nation.

He is an example of a genial and lofty character united to a firm and temperate judgment.
