Mysuru, December 8:- Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Friday exuded confidence that there will be no hung assembly in the upcoming Assembly elections to the state. He was confident that Congress would romp home with comfortable majority.
Siddaramaiah, who arrived to city to take part in various events organised in the city, spoke to media persons at Mandakalli airport. He said, “Even before the private channels and institutes are conducting the poll survey, we have conducted a survey in the state and I am sure there will be no hung assembly in the state.” However, Siddaramaiah refused to disclose the details of the survey conducted by his party.
Siddaramaiah took a jibe at BJP state president and former chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa and said, “Yeddyurappa is dreaming that that BJP would come to power in the state. Neither the BJP will come to power in the state nor Yeddyurappa will be able to become chief minister.”
Reacting to the alleged insulting remarks by Union Minister Anant Kumar Hegde, Siddaramaiah said, “Their words show their culture. District In-charge Minister Dr H C Mahadevappa and I are from rural background and we also know to use such words but we don’t want to stoop down to that level,” he added. –(MR/KS,KK).
