Karnataka | Karnataka Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy commented on Former Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s statement that with the blessings of the people of the state, he would take on another term.
It started at the gathering in Hassan, where Siddaramaiah claimed the opposition parties joined hands together to prevent him from taking over the job of chief minister again, adding words of caste and money were seeping into politics.
“I thought people will bless me once again and make me the chief minister. Unfortunately, I lost, but this is not the end. In politics wins and losses are common,” he said.
However, the Congress Leader replied that he worked for the welfare of all sections of people. The current Chief Minister of Karnataka H. D. Kumaraswamy made his remark on Siddaramaiah’s statement, saying “Anybody can become a CM in this democracy. It is a democratic system.”
An interview with a daily explained Siddaramaiah’s reason to do the job once more. “I am contesting this time because, having been the Chief Minister for five years, I did not want to run away from the fight. But this will be my last.” Siddaramaiah said.
