Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said on Sunday that he had nothing against former revenue minister V Srinivas Prasad who has resigned as Congress MLA for dropping from the Cabinet during the recent reshuffle.

I will attend meet on Mahadayi with positive mind: Siddaramaiah-1Speaking at the convention of Congress activists, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has made it clear that he would not have recommended Srinivas Prasad to become revenue minister if he was against the latter. “There are 123 Congress MLAs. We cannot make all of them ministers. There is a provision to make only 34 MLAs/MLCs as ministers. Sixteen ministers were dropped from the Cabinet during the recent Cabinet reshuffle. Srinivas Prasad said that he was not informed while dropping him from the Cabinet. The issue of dropping some ministers was discussed during the Cabinet meeting. There are several thers too who could not be retained or made ministers. Did they resign from Congress?,’’ Siddaramaiah asked.

Coming down heavily on Srinivas Prasad for making allegations against him, the chief minister said that some leaders want Congress only if they were made ministers. “They do not want Congress if they are not made ministers,”the chief minister said.

Reacting to Srinvias Prasad’s statement he had helped the CM win the by-election from Chamundeshwari assembly constituency, he said that he had won election to the State Assembly five times.

“I only want the Congress workers to be prepared for Nanjangud by polls,” said the CM without opting to talk more on the issue.
