Addressing the media, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah told that it is not the right time to declare the name of the CM candidate, but expressed confidence that he will win in both the constituencies. Further, he also said that anybody can dream of becoming the CM like RSS leader Santhosh and Ananth Kumar Hegde. Siddaramaiah also made a controversial statement about them saying that the two played an important role in Vijayendra not getting a ticket to contest from Varuna. He also lashed out at Kumaraswamy and declared him a liar. "From what he speaks, not even 1 % is worth believing," he added.
