Don’t talk about my loyalty to the party, said BJP opposition leader in the legislative council, K S Eshwarappa in reaction to the recent remarks made by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah against him.
Speaking at a press meet here in the city on Tuesday, Eshwarappa said, “I was brought by the BJP and my end will also be here. No one can speak about my loyalty. Siddaramaiah, who criticised me, must introspect and think how he left the JD(S) party and joined the Congress to climb the post of Chief Minister.”
“Siddaramaiah gave ‘Talaaq’ to JD(S) and joined the Congress. Now, after he finishes his tenure as Chief Minister, he will give ‘Talaaq’ to the Congress and may join another party,” chided Eshwarappa.
Eshwarappa said, “Siddaramaiah is a big liar and is fooling people all around him and makes false promises. If at all there was a Nobel prize for liars, it could have gone to Siddaramaiah.”
