Gowda lacks support, should resign: Kumaraswamy
Mysore: JD(S) state president HD Kumaraswamy
on Sunday sought the resignation of Karnataka Chief Minister D V
Sadananda Gowda, claiming he "lacked support" within the BJP
government in the state.
"Gowda has been unable to run his six-month-old government
ever since he took over from B S Yeddyurappa after the BJP
government was rocked by illegal mining issues," Kumaraswamy
told reporters on the sidelines of a function here.
"Yeddyurappa is working overtime to become chief minister
again and Gowda lacks support within his cabinet. When the
party leaders are trying to destabilise the government within,
should the Chief Minister continue?" he asked.
Kumaraswamy said he doubted the BJP government would last
till the 2013 Assembly elections, although Gowda has
maintained that he would be at the helm till then.
The JD(S) leader said he would embark on a state tour from
February 29 and hold conventions for the backward class,
minorities and the youth across Karnataka.
Taking a swipe at the Congress, Kumaraswamy said the
Congress was weakened "beyond repair" in the state. "They
better seek the help of a good doctor before the party dies of
