Mangaluru: Union Minister, D V Sadananda Gowda claimed here on Tuesday that former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had decided to bring down the Congress-JD(S) coalition government in the state and it would last merely another fortnight or a month. Speaking to reporters here, he alleged that Mr Siddaramaiah had reluctantly agreed to the Congress joining hands with the JD(S) to form the government under pressure from senior leaders of the party. And now had made up his mind to pull it down in a few days.
“ The coalition government in Karnataka will collapse within 15 days to a month," he declared. “ Siddaramaiah is daydreaming of becoming Chief Minister again although with the number of MLAs that the Congress has presently, he cannot hope to and the BJP too will never support him," he said, adding that although the government would fall on its own, the BJP would be blamed. On the heavy rain and landslides in some districts, he said the government must immediately compensate those who had suffered as a result of the natural disaster.
"When I was the Chief Minister we had provided compensation to the areca growers affected by the fruit rot disease,” he recalled, assuring that the Centre was ready to help if the state government wanted it to. Asked about the Congress campaign on the Rafael deal, Mr Gowda said the Prime Minister had already made it clear that he was ready for an investigation into it. "Rahul Gandhi does not have proper information on the deal. The Congress should not play politics on this issue," he added.
