Siddaramaiah joins race for Karnataka CM's post

 

Siddaramaiah joins race for Karnataka CM`s post Bangalore: Making no bones about his ambition, Leader of Opposition Congress in the outgoing Assembly Siddaramaiah on Wednesday declared himself as a "strong contender" for the chief minister's post, as his party dethroned the BJP and was set to form the government.

"I am one of the strong contenders," Siddaramaiah, who is facing a challenge from other chief ministerial aspirants KPCC chief G Parameshwara and Union Minister Mallikarjun Kharge told reporters.

Siddaramaiah, a backward class leader, said the decision on chief ministership was, however, left to the Congress high command and the legislature party.

Siddaramaiah said the defeat was a "big lesson" to the BJP which was allegedly involved in "corruption, misgovernance and non-performance."

To questions, he said the Rahul factor had also played a role in the Congress' victory and there was "no Modi magic".
