Chief Minister Siddaramaiah visited the residence of former minister and MLA Ambareesh in Bengaluru on Wednesday evening and held discussion with him.
Having dropped Ambareesh from the Cabinet, the chief minister visited his residence for the first time and had a cordial meeting for sometime.
“There is no connection with regard to dropping me from the cabinet and this meeting. The CM has come to my residence as a gesture of friendship and there is no other reason behind this visit. I am neither quitting Congress, nor joining BJP. These are all rumors going around,” said Ambareesh.
“I share a good friendship with Ambareesh since a long time. I visited his residence as a friend and it has got nothing to do with politics,” said Siddaramaiah.
Ministers K J George and M B Patil accompanied the chief minister to Ambareesh’s house.
