Siddaramaiah forsees mid-term polls, slams Yeddyurappa
Hubli: Opposition Congress leader Siddaramaiah on Sunday called upon the people in general and Congress workers in particular to be prepared for a mid-term polls to the Karnataka assembly as he doubted the survival of the "corrupt BJP government".
Addressing the `naada rakshna` (save the state) rally at the Nehru maidan, Siddaramaiah challenged Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa to prove that he had constructed houses for the poor under Ashraya housing scheme.
Claiming that the state`s financial position was in doldrums because of the ruling BJP government`s alleged corruption worth Rs one lakh crore, he warned that Yeddyurappa "would soon be behind bars" owing to corruption.
"The Congress is prepared for a mid-term poll if such a situation does arise", Siddaramaiah said at the rally, in which Congress workers from seven districts of North Karnataka participated.
