Bidar: Continuing his attack on Chief Minister Siddaramaiah for the latter’s luxurious lifestyle after becoming CM, JD(S) leader H D Kumaraswamy has reasserted that Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s wristwatch costs Rs 50-60 lakh and sunglasses Rs 1.5 lakh.

Speaking to reporters here on Tuesday while canvassing for JD(S) candidate Ayaz Khan in the by-election to the Bidar Assembly seat, Kumaraswamy stressed that he had “solid proof” that the chief minister’s wristwatch was an expensive one.

HDK said he has raked up the issue only because the CM has been claiming that he is a follower of socialist icon Ram Manohar Lohia, which is far from truth.

He said that as per his research, the watch that Siddaramaiah owns, costs nothing less than Rs 50 to 60 lakh. His sunglasses cost no less than Rs 1.5 lakh.

HDK asserted that once he started questioning this, the CM has stopped wearing the luxurious possessions.

Siddaramaiah had twice refuted Kumaraswamy’s assertion, saying he was ready to sell his watch for Rs five lakh and sunglasses Rs 50,000. Kumaraswamy had first made the assertion last week after Siddaramaiah said the JD(S) leader had spent Rs 60 crore to launch the film career of his son.
