Former Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said he won't join the BJP, even if they promise to make him President or Prime Minister of the country.
Bengaluru: The assembly elections in Karnataka are on the cards. All the political parties don’t like to leave any stone unturned. The Congress and JD (s) are looking to provide a stiff challenge to the ruling BJP.
However, the BJP wants to return to power again. Therefore, leaders of all the political parties are trying to woo the voters.
The grand old party is attempting to regain power in Karnataka; with regard to this, former Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said he won’t join the BJP, even if they promise to make him President or Prime Minister of the country.
At a rally in Karnataka, which is nearing election time, he declared, “Not even my dead body will go to the BJP.”
Siddaramaiah was criticising HD Kumaraswamy’s Janata Dal Secular because its MLAs had defected to the BJP, ending the Congress-JDS government in the state. He has been aspiring to become chief minister of Karnataka again.
Siddaramaiah is disillusioned, according to BJP leader Narayanaswamy in response to the senior Congress leader’s comments.
Why has his body arrived here? He had lost hope. You were a CM once. You are respected by all of us.”Please save that respect,” the BJP MLC said.
The Karnataka Assembly election is slated to take place on or before May 2023.
