"A madman is governing Karnataka. Siddaramaiah is misusing the government machinery to target the BJP in Sadhana Samavesha," Eshwarappa charged while speaking to media persons here.
"Siddaramaiah is spending taxpayers' money to conduct the Sadhana Samavesha," Eshwarappa charged.
Due to the Congress' support to criminals, Karnataka had become a hub of murderers.
The government had withdrawn cases against PFI and KFD workers despite their involvement in anti-social activities, he stated.
Regarding chief minister's visits to residences of Deepak and Abdul Basheer in Dakshina Kannada, Eshwarappa wanted to know why Siddaramaiah didn't visit residences of over 20 Hindu youths killed in the last four years in the state.
Regarding CM's reference to a currency note counting machine at his residence, Eshwarappa justified it, saying as a businessman he had purchased the machine.
