The BJP has filed complaint against former Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and asked the Election Commission to take stringent actions so that he be refrained from address poll rallies and make speeches for the next 72 hours.
The Bharatiya Janata Party leaders Arun Shahapur, submitted a petition to the Election Commission seeking stringent action against former Chief Minister of Karnataka, Siddaramaiah, for his defamatory remarks against PM Modi.
“Siddaramaiah needs 20 MLAs who will resign from the Assembly and force re-election. He has aspirations of becoming the Chief Minister and once the Lok Sabha election results are out, he is planning to put his plan to action,” a source from the Congress said.
“Siddaramaiah wants to redeem his reputation. He has been running the show in the background. The fact that Deve Gowda’s family members have benefited because of his defeat has made him unhappy,” the source added, speaking to TNM.
Earlier there were debates between legislators within Congress over Siddaramaiah being the next chief minister. AICC general secretary of Karnataka KC Venugopal had however asked the MLAs to concentrate on the upcoming by-polls in the state of Karnataka rather than hold debates regarding Siddaramaiah being the next CM of Karnataka.
