Mangaluru, Dec 12, 2016 : Veteran Congress leader B Janardhana Poojary demanded the resignation of Karnataka Excise minister HY Meti, who is embroiled in ’sex tape’ allegation.
Poojary said Siddaramaiah should seek the resignation of Meti for his alleged involvement in the sex scandal. "Expel Meti from the cabinet if he does not tender his resignation on his own. Quit the chief minister’s position if you (Siddaramaiah) are not capable of seeking Meti’s resignation or expelling him from the cabinet. The party has dalit leader G Parameshwar, who is capable of becoming the chief minister of the state," Poojary said and also lambasted against Siddaramaiah for his ’arrogant’ style of functioning.
He said that the Meti episode has brought disgrace to the Congress. "It has brought not only embarrassment to party workers, but also a disgrace to the party in the state. Siddaramaiah has least consideration for values as a leader. He gives least preference to values in politics and shows his arrogant nature. Moreover, he has control over his cabinet colleagues and his officials," Poojary charged.
