Siddaramaiah govt can fall anytime: Sadananda Gowda
Bangalore: Railway Minister and senior BJP leader D V Sadananda Gowda on Sunday said the present Siddaramaiah government in Karnataka can fall anytime and asked his party workers to get ready for elections.
"The Siddaramaiah government can fall anytime. Don`t think it will continue for another three-and-half-years. It can even fall in next three months," he said, addressing the BJP State SC Morcha Executive Committee Meeting here.
"Do you think there is any government in the state? You all should get ready for elections and create a wave against the sleeping Congress and Siddaramaiah`s rule," he said.
Gowda also flayed Siddaramaiah for "neglecting" the scheduled caste and other suppressed caste people.
"He rode to power on your (SC and suppressed people) backs. See now, for who is he working? - you all should see this minutely," he said.
"He took out padyatras to Bellary, Ullala, Karwar and Krishna basin areas, raising a cry against scams, but after coming to power Siddaramaiah`s rule has been exposed in just one year through induction of corrupt politician like Shivakumar (in the ministry)," he said.
The law and order also has collapsed in the state with sexual assault cases coming to light, the BJP minister said.
Gowda claimed that Siddaramaiah`s rule has hit a low after the appointment of retired IPS officer M Kempaiah as advisor to Home Minister K J George.
He said the appointment to oversee the administrative reforms and transfers in the police department indicates the sinking of the law and order situation.
About infighting in Congress, Gowda said, "KPCC President G Parameshwara`s show of strength on his birthday coming soon would turn out to be "show of death" for the Congress rule in Karnataka.
