Dissent in Congress will escalate after Lok Sabha poll results: Eshwarappa
The former Deputy Chief Minister and BJP leader K.S. Eshwarappa has said that the dissent in the Congress will escalate further after the Lok Sabha poll results.
Speaking to presspersons while campaigning in Kundagol taluk on Thursday, Mr. Eshwarappa said that while some Congress leaders want Siddaramaiah to be the Chief Minister again, KPCC president Dinesh Gundu Rao issues diktat to party leaders not to issue such statements. “Dissent is brewing in the Congress and after the poll results, it will explode,” he said.
On the reported statement of BJP leader B. Sriramulu concerning the death of the former Minister C.S. Shivalli, he said that he was not aware of it and would speak to him. On the Congress filing a complaint against Mr. Sriramulu, he said that it had become a habit for the Congress to file complaints against BJP leaders and they had not event left Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
