Siddaramaiah says Karnataka CM Yediyurappa is like an unwanted child of BJP
Former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has criticised the BJP government in Karnataka, he said BS Yediyurappas is like an “unwanted child” as his party’s central leadership was not interested in him taking the top job.
Mr Siddaramaiah said, “He has come to power through the backdoor without the public mandate and against principles of democracy.. they did not have a public mandate as they had only 105 MLAs out of 113 required for a simple majority.”
“Unlike Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Yediyurappa has become CM without public mandate…how long he will be CM I don’t know… Yediyurappa is like an unwanted child, BJP has no interest in him becoming CM.”
Siddaramaiah has accused the Mr Yediyurappa of indulging in the transfer of officials and vendetta politics since taking over. “Has he done anything else? People are suffering due to floods, still, no proper relief has been given to them.”
Siddaramaiah said “It now looks like he said it to indicate that he will do it (hate politics). For public consumption, he said he will not indulge in hate politics, but other than that he has not done anything else,” he said.
