Shivamogga: Despite losing elections, some leaders have not stopped aspirations of being CMs, taunted Minister of Rural Development and Panchayat Raj K. S. Eshwarappa.
He was addressing media persons here on Sunday June 20. Eshwarappa wryly commented that both opposition leader Siddaramaiah and Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee President D. K. Shivakumar are the aspirants for the CM post. But they are mum and indirectly encouraging their junior colleagues to endorse them. Citing the example of Zameer Ahmed Khan supporting Siddaramaiah as CM, he pointed that this was brushed under the carpet saying that it is an individual's opinion. In fact this is a planned move by these high-ranked leaders, he alleged.
Further, coming down heavily on Siddaramaiah, Eshwarappa said that the opposition leader has lost in his traditional constituency of Chamundeshwari, migrated and won from Badami by fluke. Now Siddaramaiah is speaking of contesting from Chamarajanagar, he said and added that let him first learn to win as an MLA and then aspire to become CM.
