Mysuru, April 13:- “Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has cheated Edagai Dalit community in implementing A J Sadashiva Commission report. No one from our community should vote for him in the Assembly elections,” said district president of JD(S) Farmers’ Wing, Cha Nanjundaswamy at a press meet held at Mysuru Press Club on Friday.
“If Congress comes back to power, Siddaramaiah will be made Chief Minister again. Knowing this, Dalits should not support the Congress. Dalits supported Congress hoping Mallikarjun Kharge would be made Chief Minister. But Siddaramaiah sidelined both Kharge and Dr G Parameshwar. Siddaramaiah sidelined Dalit leader V Srinivas Prasad too. Dalits should take a decision to defeat Siddaramaiah at the hustings,” he added.
Kolagala Parashivamurthy, Nagesh K Belattur and H C Srinivas were present. (MR/KMR).
