Mangaluru, August 13, 2017: In a media meet on August 12, Saturday, Congress leader B. Janardhana Poojary has sought the resignation of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah as the latter has failed to take steps to address drought situation.
“ Rise up from slumber and tender resignation”, he said and asked CM Siddaramaiah to take note that BJP National president Amit Shah is in the State to unseat him.
“Wherever BJP’s Shah has toured, the ruling party’s Chief Minister has been unseated,” Poojary pointed out. He said despite severity of the drought, CM Siddaramaiah has so far not found time to tour of the affected regions of the State. CM should pave way for a Dalit leader or D.K. Shivakumar to become the Chief Minister.
The party high command has a good picture of Shivakumar, who has stood by the party during difficult times. “Both Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi have lauded Shivakumar,” he said and added that Shivakumar would become the CM in the coming days.
