Though, Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy refuse to give a direct reply on who can lead the country if the opposition suceed to vote out Narendra Modi, in a tackful way he said that West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has all capabilities to lead the country.
Stating that people of the country were totally “disappointed” with the administration of Narendra Modi, he heapedpraise on his West Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee, saying she is a “good administrator” and has all capabilities of leading the country. However, maintained that leadership was not the pressing issue at hand and the opposition needs to focus on ways and ideas to win the polls.
Referring to BJP’s accusations that the opposition has no alternate leader to Modi, he asserted that deciding on the leadership is not a criterion to win the polls. People of the country are totally disappointed with the administration of Narendra Modi. Several states have their own problems. It is not necessary to select a leader before the elections.
According to him, tThere are effective leaders, who can move in a big way for the development of the country. They can make headway in areas where the previous governments have failed. But we can sit and select our leader after the elections are over, he added.
Stating that Banerjee has the abilities to run the country, he said that she is simplest of the simple and a very good administrator. “I believe that Mamata ji has all the capabilities of leading the country. And she has already proved herself by leading West Bengal for so many years,” he added.
Drawing parallels with the situation the country in 1977 when Prime Minister Indira Gandhi faced revolt from various quarters, Kumaraswamy said, “The present scenario is quite similar to that period. Even the politicians sat together and select their leader. This time, too, I think we will also have no problem in doing that”.
