Even family won't bid for Siddu: DVS

Union Law Minister D V Sadananda Gowda on Thursday hit out at Siddaramaiah saying that if the chief minister auctioned himself, even his family members would not bid for him.

Speaking to reporters while campaigning for the BJP candidate for the Hebbal Assembly bypoll in Bengaluru, Gowda said, “The chief minister has said he is ready to sell his watch for Rs five lakh. Leave alone his watch, even if he auctions himself, his family will not bid for him.”

Gowda said Siddaramaiah was the worst chief minister the State had ever seen. “He has neglected Bengaluru and the State. He calls himself a socialist and claims that he leads a simple life. Is wearing a watch worth Rs 70 lakh a simple way of life,” Gowda asked.

The Union Minister pointed out that Siddaramaiah had said the watch was gifted to him by a friend. “For such an expensive gift, what sort of favour must the friend have received?” Gowda questioned.
