Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], May 18 (ANI): After some sniping between the coalition partners, Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy on Saturday asked leaders of Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) and of ally Congress to abstain from commenting against each other.
"We are on the verge of forming a new government at the Centre. At this juncture, where all efforts are being made to form a non-BJP government at the Centre, the contradictory statements by leaders of coalition partners Congress-JDS may mar such efforts," a tweet by Kumaraswamy read.
In his second tweet, he said "Hence my humble request to the leaders of both the parties to restrain from making contradictory- controversial statements in public and to support the cause," his second tweet read.
Most recently, in a veiled jibe at his predecessor Siddaramaia of the Congress, Kumaraswamy said on Tuesday, "Mallikarjun Kharge should have become the Chief Minister long ago. I feel that injustice has happened to him. I would like to clearly state that, even I feel that, Kharge has not been given recognition for all the work he has done."
Siddaramaiah hit back saying even H D Revanna, brother of Kumaraswamy, is a chief minister material. (ANI)
