Bengaluru: CLP leader and former CM Siddaramaiah appears to be facing an uphill job of attempting different approaches and conferences to persuade and clear all the confusions that the representatives of the rebel Congress have about the state government of the Congress-Janata Dal (Secular) coalition.
Siddaramaiah said on Friday, July 5, expressing his anguish that Gokak MLA Ramesh Jarkiholi was uncompromising and that he could not be persuaded.
“We attempted all we could. Everyone has their own boundaries and we also have a point of saturation. When we tried to persuade Ramesh, we crossed that point, “he said.
Regarding MLA Anand Singh, he said sources notified him that the MLA had resigned due to the state coalition government’s accusations regarding the land deal case of Jindal Steel.
“I don’t think so. I constantly requested him when he met me to tell me if he had any problems and I told him we could discuss and sort it out,” he added.
Regarding the different statements made by MLA Ramesh Jarkiholi, the former CM said he would not trust him, but only think Ramesh Kumar, Speaker of the Legislative Assembly of Karnataka.
“Speaker Ramesh Kumar’s decision will be deemed final,” Siddaramaiah said.
