"Former PM Deve Gowda had shed tears  on knowing about the  plight of drought hit places. Let the government clarify on the drought relief measures taken by it," he demanded.

Poojary said he welcomed CM’s media advisor’s comments  that those whose names were mentioned in the diary have to resign. "The BJP men are talking about the kickbacks from state Congress leaders to the  Congress high command. Let them reveal how much money has gone from Karnataka to the  PM," he said.

On Food and  Civil  Supplies Minister UT Khader’s ’Chappal’ remarks, Poojary said it was heights of foolishness on his part. "Everyone has the right to protest. I had advised Khader to be cautious while making statements. He makes such statements and then he says he is my Shishya," said Poojary.
