'CM inducted Reddys into Cabinet'

Speaking to reporters, he said Sushma never interfered in the administration in Karnataka, let alone supporting the Reddy brothers. It was purely the decision of the chief minister to make the Reddy brothers Cabinet ministers, he added.

Sushma had recently stated that it was a lie that she played a role in the Reddy brothers becoming ministers and her counterpart in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley was the Karnataka in-charge at that time.

On the Centre’s advisory to the State, Eshwarappa said Union Home Minister P Chidambaram should have sent an advisory to Governor H R Bhardwaj and recalled him for his unconstitutional decision to recommend imposition of President’s Rule in the State.

Asked about the State Congress’ plans to keep off the coming Legislature session, he said it is the right forum for Opposition parties to air their grievances and hence, they should attend it.
