Political News, State, (Bengaluru), February 8:-Just ahead of the Budget presentation in the Assembly, Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy on Friday alleged Prime Minister Narendra Modi of destroying the country’s democracy.
The CM also went on to say that he has proof to prove his point and expose the double talk of the PM.
Kumaraswamy said, “He (PM) is systemically demolishing this country’s democracy, misleading the people, I request all the opposition parties to rise. They must expose the truth of the Prime Minister in the parliament.”
“BJP is disrupting the functioning of the state assembly. Its operation Kamala is going on, and it is trying to steal our MPs in Karnataka,” the Karnataka CM alleged.
“On one side Narendra Modi is preaching to the country and politicians, on the other side, he is encouraging his friends to demolish democracy through black money. I will expose this now, I have the proof to back my charge,” he further went on to say.
Reacting, former Karntaka CM Yeddyurappa called the tapes ‘fake’. BJP, on the other hand, while lashing out at Kumaraswamy said that his “fake hit & run allegations are not something new”.
The official Twitter page of the party wrote, “In a desperate attempt to save his govt full-time movie producer turned part-time CM @hd_kumaraswamy has used his connection to mimic @BSYBJP’s voice. Your fake hit & run allegations are not something new. BTW here is one of your audio.”
HD Kumaraswamy, earlier in the day, removed dissenting Congress MLA Umesh Jadhav from the post of the chairman of the Warehouse Corporation. He replaced him with Pratap Gowda Patil.
Further, fuelling speculation of defection, seven MLAs from Congress and three from BJP, on Thursday abstained from the Assembly’s Budget Session.
