Siddaramaiah refutes charges of Deve Gowda

Siddaramaiah refutes charges of Deve Gowda

Bengaluru, Aug 23(UNI) Former Karnataka Chief Minister and Congress Legislative Party leader Siddaramaiah refuted the charges of the former Prime Minister and JD(S) National President H D Deve Gowda that he was responsible for the collapse of the JD(S)-Congress coalition government.

Addressing newsmen here on Friday, the Congress leader, strongly denying that he was instrumental in toppling the coalition government, said that “former Prime Minister had made remarks against me with ulterior political motives”.

Stating that he had fell in line with the party’s High Command to support the JD(S) leader H D Kumaraswamy to become Chief Minister of the State, he alleged that “autocratic attitude of Kumaraswamy and interference in the affairs of other Ministers office by his brother and another son of Devegowda H D Revanna had led to the fall of the coalition government”.

Maintaining that he had never tried to intervene in the administration of the coalition government, he charged that “Kumaraswamy had never bothered to honor any decisions taken at the Co-ordination Committee formed to ensure smooth functioning of the coalition government”.

“Had Kumaraswamy taken all the leaders in the coalition government in to confidence the situation would not have gone to the extent of the fall of the government”, he added.

Alleging that Devegowda had mastered the art of bringing down the elected government, the Congress leader charged that “Deve Gowda was responsible for the fall of the S R Bommai and Dharam Singh government in the past”.

“Everybody knows that how Devegowda treated the then AICC President Sitaram Kesari, who had extended an unconditional support to Gowda,” the Congress leader charged.

“It is Devegowda and Kumaraswamy, who were responsible for the installation of the BJP government in the Karnataka” he added.

The Congress leader also accused that the JD(S) leaders had conspired to defeat the Congress candidates in Bengaluru North, Mysuru, Vijayapura and other Lok Sabha constituencies.

“Devegowda had only tried to cultivate his family members into the politics riding on the support of the Vokkaliga Community” Siddaramaiah said.

Referring to the future relationship of the Congress with the JD(S) in Karnataka, he said that “the Party High Command will take a call shortly on the issue”.

Devegowda, had virtually severed his party’s alliance with the Congress by accusing that the Congress Leader Siddaramaiah was responsible for the fall of the JD(S)-Congress coalition government.

In an interview with the section of the media he had charged that “Siddaramaiah was nursing a personal ambition to topple the Coalition government headed by H D Kumaraswamy”.
