Dharawad: “In a democratic set-up, anyone can become the Chief Minister. There is nothing wrong in Brahmin community leader Pralhad Joshi becoming the CM. Former Chief Minister H. D. Kumaraswamy is sowing seeds of poison in the society by making such statements,” said Transport Minister Sriramulu.
Speaking to mediapersons here, he said, “It is not correct for Kumaraswamy to make a statement on Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi that he comes from the DNA dynasty of Peshwa culture. Pralhad Joshi is a worthy leader to become the Chief Minister. As a Senior BJP Leader, it is not good to talk about him in a singular manner,” he noted.
I was a minister when B. S. Yediyurappa became Deputy Chief Minister in the Coalition Government. I know how Kumaraswamy treated BSY at that time,” he said.
