Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy seems to be worry after the former Chief Minister and Congress senior leader Siddaramaiah had openly expressed his ambitions to become Chief Minister of the state once again, as against to his statements during recent Assembly polls that this would be his last elections.
With out hiding his suspecions, Kumaraswamy said openly that efforts are being made to destabilise his government. This was nothing but referring to the statement of Siddaramaiah given a day before stating that he will become Chief Minister again. It seems former chief minister’s statement has led to intense specualtions among political circles of the state on the very survival of the present JD(S)-Congress coalition government.
Moreover, Kumaraswamy also said he was aware of all the developments and that he will not try to protect his seat. Stating that he will try to do godo work as long as he is chief minister, he said that those who are trying to destabilise the government should know this. However, he asserted that it was not easy to topple the coalition government. A section of officers in the government have become lethargic and they are under the impression that the government will not survive for long. A proper message will be sent out to them soon, he warned.
But, Congress leader Deputy Chief Minister G Parameshwara, who is known in the opposition camp of Siddaramaiah tried to downplay Siddaramaiah’s statement. “I don’t know anything in this regard. How do I know who conspired against him (Siddaramaiah)?…I can’t say anything,” he added.
