Yeddyurappa tried to become chief minister through 'mischievous acts', alleges Siddaramaiah

Bengaluru: Former chief minister and Congress coordination committee chairman Siddaramaiah on Monday criticised Karnataka BJP president BS Yeddyurappa and said that he only dreams about being chief minister, and to achieve his dream has committed 'mischievous acts' and has been exposed.

Siddaramaiah made this statement at a meeting organised by Press Club of Bangalore's Meet the Press programme. Siddaramaiah also claimed that the Congress is against communal politics, people against democracy and the constitution. The former chief minister expressed confidence that the Congress-JD(S) combine will win 20 Lok Sabha seats from Karnataka at the least. When asked about the differences between the Congress and JD(S) in several Lok Sabha segments, he said HD Deve Gowda and he will resolve these issues.

NR Ramesh, BJP leader, reacted to the statements of the former chief minister by saying that it is actually Siddaramaiah who dreams of being the chief minister and also alleged that he is trying to make inroads to become the chief minister post elections. According to Ramesh, Siddaramaiah also wants to make HD Revanna the deputy chief minister and stake claim of the coveted post.
