Chikkamagaluru: If Nalin proves allegation, I will retire from politics - Kumaraswamy

Daijiworld Media Network - Chikkamagaluru (SP)

Chikkamagaluru, Oct 8: "If MP and state BJP president Nalin Kumar Kateel, is able to prove his allegation that the treasury of the state had been plundered during the term of the coalition government, I will retire from politics," announced former chief minister of Karnataka, H D Kumaraswamy.

He was speaking to media persons after visiting the houses of two farmers from S K Megal and Karagadde near Kalasa who ended their lives, on Sunday October 6. He advised Nalin against issuing irresponsible statements and challenged him to get the fact verified through Central Bureau of Investigation if he believes that these charges are true.

He said that there is money in the treasury and blamed the BJP government of not having the sense to respond to the problems of flood-affected farmers. "BJP workers and MLAs are vying with each other for usurping flood compensation money. I hereby want Yediyurappa to reveal what kind of investigation he will get done on this misuse," he questioned.

He criticized MP Shkobha Karandlaje, for deriding him, saying that she does not know anything about farmers and farming. He said that the BJP does nothing other than ruling based on the name of Modi.

He also termed as false the statement by the state leaders about the central government releasing second instalment of compensation to the state. He also announced compensation of two lac rupees to Chandre Gowda family from S K Megal and one lac rupees to the family of Chandre Gowda from Karagadde, who have committed suicide, out of his salary. He also said that he would personally pay Rs 10,000 to each of the 38 farmers from Moodigere taluk whose farms and fields were damaged. He said he had taken this initiative with the hope that this will open the eyes of the government to what it should do.

    Retirement from politics... another joke. Politics is one of the many professions where there is no retirement.

    This sounds like a dialogue from a drama that he enacts regularly.

    Someone had said that he would retire from politics if Modi got elected as P.M. for a second term.
