Bengaluru: Leaving with satisfaction of having done good work - Kumaraswamy

Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Jul 24: "I admit that I committed some mistakes in the past by going against the wishes of my father. Still, I am leaving with the satisfaction of having done some good work. Even now I get hurt when I am termed as breaker of promises. BJP will suffer the consequences of the plan now hatched by it. Yeddyurappa may be able to form the government. But as soon as the ministry is formed, there will be turmoil in that party. I have no qualms about stepping down from the position of power," stated outgoing chief minister, H D Kumaraswamy.

Speaking at the end of the debate on trust vote on Tuesday evening, he apologized to the assembly speaker and people of the state for the delay in completing the process of trust vote. At the same time, he bitterly criticized three legislators from his party for deserting the party and announced that they will never be re-admitted into the JD(S) again.

Kumaraswamy said that he had set aside Rs 23,500 crore towards waiver of farmers’ loans. "When Kodagu district was flooded, I worked sincerely to provide relief and rehabilitation, without neglecting the district for not voting for us. After a child attending school was washed away in the presence of its mother in the constituency represented by Araga Jnanendra, we spent Rs 187 crore and built 1,508 foot bridges in the state to avert such incidents," he stated.

Referring to repeated references to him by the BJP in social website about him having broken the promise, he asked the saffron party to introspect on what had happened. "During the period we agreed on 20:20 sharing of power, BJP national leaders, Rajnath Singh and Yashwant Sinha came here and held discussions. I had requested them to sign certain conditions before handing over power but they did not agree. They should keep this in mind and also tell their workers about it," he said.

Kumaraswamy was particularly angry at former state president of his party, H Vishwanath, who commented that the coalition government was indulging in demonic politics. He said he is hurt by these words, and claimed that he had realized after Vishwanath joined his party that he does something outwardly but actually is something else inside. How can such people be called as parliamentarians, he wondered.

Kumaraswamy wanted the finance bill that was pending, to be taken up for discussions subject to changes if any. When the speaker sought opinion of the opposition leader on this proposal, Yeddurappa opposed it. Thereafter the trust vote was taken up.

    This statement by ex- CM is a big lie. When did he had any time for any good or bad work ? Half the time he is as going around the temples, Astrologers etc along with his big family. Rest of the half time, he was busy fighting his Congress colleagues, JD(S) rebels and Sumalata in Mandya.

    How can he justify 14 months’ of non governance with a statement like this?

    After the high voltage drama of "crying and drinking poison", now that all the family members are inducted into one or the other well earning positions , after making the partner in the government lose badly in the parliament elections --- yes he must very well satisfied that he has done enough for himself ! However REVANNA may be in depression mood - his day to day earning thru transfer, and unnecessary interventions in the ministries of others , his earning capacity has come to a stand still abruptly! None of the many Nimboos he was holding - paid any dividend !!

    Do not elect this Gowda family ever again. I am sure Karnataka voters are not like Tamils and Keralites who are emotionally weak. Please select any national party of your choice. Dump JDS at any cost.

    Yes lots of satisfaction indeed. At the expense of Congress
    - Your wife became a MLA easily without any formidable opposition .
    - Your 'good for nothing' son was launched into films and also in politics parallely.
    - Your brother thrived and his son is now a MP.
    You can just retire.

    Actually a big joke played on people of State by DG & Sons & Grandsons, Daughter In Laws and Son In Laws. People are fed up this family party and next elections, mark my words, JDS will be reduced to non-entity, possibly below 5 seats or lesser. They will be decimated like anything.

    Democracy was threatened more when the congress bought out JDS luring Kumaraswmy with a CM post even though he had only 37 seats in the assembly, subverting the party with the largest number of seats. Karma theory justice is being done now.

    Gowda family is a curse to Karnataka. HDK was part of all coalition government which collapsed half a way. This family and the party does not deserve to rule Karnataka. It should be either Congress of BJP. There should be a fresh election and people should vote for national parties of their choice. Never vote for a coalition whether with BJP or Congress. Gowda family should be politically cremated ONCE FOR ALL.
