Shivamogga: 'Prepared to remain a legislator if not made minister, DCM' - Eshwarappa


Daijiworld Media Network - Shivamogga (SP)

Shivamogga, Jul 30: Former deputy chief minister (DCM) of Karnataka, K S Eshwarappa, has clarified that he has decided to own a stand that is different from the one followed by former chief minister, Jagadish Shettar, as far as the issue of joining the new ministry that is expected to be formed shortly, is concerned. "I will manage the responsibilities of DCM or minister if I am given these posts. If not, I will involve myself in organizing the party in the capacity of a legislator," he stated.

Addressing a press conference in the city, Eshwarappa said that he will abide by any decision the party might take on the issue of making him a minister. "Personally I am an aspirant for the position of the DCM post. Heads of several Mutts called me and heads of all the communities urged me to become DCM. But the party has many senior, more experienced people and experts as compared to me. Compared to them, I am just a small dot," he said.

"There is no rule that I should be in the cabinet. I will not lobby for the post and have never done that. At the same time I will not decline if I am offered the post of the minister," Eshwarappa explained.

He said that all misunderstandings within the BJP have been addressed and everyone is surprised by the developments taking place during the last three to four days. He said that he and others are happy that the Congress is disappointed at its failure to reap political benefit out of the misunderstandings within the BJP. Only in BJP one can see the issues being addressed within three days by choosing a different chief minister," he stated. He said that the BJP, which knows how to employ political manoeuvring like Rama and Krishna has now used Krishna's technique. He said that the aim of this ploy was to continue in power for two years and to rise to power again after two years. Eshwarappa also said that once the party gets absolute majority, it till follow the ideals of Lord Rama and continue with efforts to establish Ram Rajya in Karnataka.
