As of sources, both the leaders got into a war of words in front of AICC Karnataka in-charge KC Venugopal in a meeting of the senior leaders convened to decide the portfolios of newly inducted eight cabinet ministers.

All started when Siddaramaiah allegedly directed Dr G Parameshwar to surrender his home portfolio. Irked by this Dr Parameshwar shouted at Siddu questioning his authority to give him such a direction.

Both the leaders continued their verbal dual till Venugopal intervened, it is said. “At one point of time, Dr G Parameshwar announced that he is resigning. It led to total chaos in the meeting,” informed a Congress leader to Newskarnataka.
