Anil Antony’s resignation has exposed Congress’ double standards on freedom of speech
Former CM Siddaramaiah will lose in Kolar; he is mislead by some local leaders for their benifit: Health Minister Dr.K.Sudhakar
Bengaluru, January 25, Wednesday
Some local leaders in the district are trying to bring Siddaramaiah to contest in Kolar for their own benefit. According to me ultimately Siddaramaiah will not contest in Kolar and will chose Varuna, said Health Minister Dr.K.Sudhakar.
Speaking to the media in Kolar Dr.Sudhakar said we will work hard and try to win in all constituencies of Kolar, Chikkaballapur and Bengaluru Rural districts. Even if Siddaramaiah contests in Kolar we will ensure our party candidate will win here, he added.
Keeping aside his political comments, Siddaramaiah very well knows the reason why I quit Congress. I was upset when Congress entered into an unholy alliance with JDS. I joined BJP with a commitment to principles and ideology and not for greed of power, Dr.Sudhakar said.
Siddaramaiah who spent all his political career fighting against congress and enjoyed power as minister and deputy chief minister in Janata Dal, finally joined Congress for the sake of power. When Congress-JDS alliance govt was formed in 2018, Siddaramaiah had promised that HD Kumaraswmay will not be allowed to continue as CM even for a single day after 2019 Lok Sabha elections. But later he was ready allow him for 5 years. That’s when I decided to quit Congress and go to people again. People of Chikkaballapur endorsed my decision and blessed me in the bypolls, Dr.Sudhaksr said.
CAG report has pointed out that financial irregularities of about Rs. 35,000 crores were found between 2013-18. I have only reiterated findings of CAG report. As far as Congress’ allegations on Covid spending is concerned, it is grossly false and baseless. I have replied to each and every allegation on the floor of the house but Congress had no face to listen to truth and ran away from the house. I am ready to release a white paper on Covid management expenditure. Our govt has restored Lokayukta with full powers. If they have proof they should complain to Lokayukta, he added.
Anil Antony episode has exposed Congress
Anil Antony had tweeted about the BBC documentary in the interest of the nation. Congress could not digest this because he took pro-India stand. The way Congress behaved with him leading to his resignation from the party has exposed Congress’ double standards on freedom of speech.
