After Devendra Fadnavis resigned from the CM's post in Maharashtra, former Karnataka CM HD Kumaraswamy tweeted, "I am sad...I should have actually felt happy because he was the one who made all the arrangements to ensure my government toppled." Kumaraswamy added, "Wasn't he the one who hosted the disqualified MLAs? He has harvested the bounty he has sown."
Even as he took aim at Fadnavis, he also hit out Karnataka chief minister B S Yediyurappa and the BJP. Janata Dal (Secular) leader H D Kumaraswamy said the same fate awaits Karnataka chief minister B S Yediyurappa who had toppled his government.
He also hoped that the BJP will now stop toppling governments. “Hope Maharashtra setback dawns wisdom on BJP to shed its lust for power, a game of toppling the government and forcing unwanted elections.”
BJP spokesperson S Prakash rubbished Kumaraswamy’s comments saying “It is the babbling of a frustrated man. What did Fadnavis have to do with his government collapsing under the weight of its own contradictions? Fadnavis will be back as CM shortly in Maharashtra, whereas Kumaraswamy can never ever hope to be CM again in Karnataka.”
