CM must apologise over watch issue : Poojary

Mangalore Today News Network

Udupi, Feb 17, 2016: Senior Congress leader and former union minister B Janardhana Poojary has  urged Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to apologise over his costly watch issue  and said he (CM) had nothing to lose if he did so.

Janardhana-Poo..Speaking to reporters here on February 17, Wednesday, Poojary once again reiterated his earlier demand that the CM should auction his watch just like what Prime Minister Narendra Modi did with regard to  his monogrammed suit.

When scribes raised the issue of JD(S) leader Kumaraswamy’s comments on the CM’s watch issue, Poojary  pointed out at  the  Rs 152 crore bribery case against Kumaraswamy  which the CBI is investigating and is before the Supreme Court,  and said the CM should raise such issues to target Kumaraswamy. 

Referring to the upcoming  Zilla and Taluk Panchayat elections, Poojary urged the rebel candidates to backtrack lest they will be blamed if the party loses.

On the JNU row, Poojary  questioned the  sedition case filed against  the student union leader."Who will be responsible if  the student  takes any extreme step?" he questioned.

Commenting on the by-election results where Congress bagged just one seat, Poojary said the Congress was in the same position as earlier.

Several local Congress leaders were present.

Whether its a watch or a pen we have nothing to do with it . If you want apologize do it yourself and not for publicity.

These leaders are not at all worth ruling. each one has his or her own issues and towards the public a big ZERO.

Its the time not to talk on watch but you people spend such huge amount on accessories ? Are you all administering or looting the public?
