CM's act has tarnished Cong's image: Poojary

Senior Congress leader and former Union Minister B Janardhana Poojary said no one is  greater than the party and the chief Minister should step down. 

Addressing mediapersons at the DCC office here on Thursday, he said let the legislation and the High Command decide the next chief ministerial candidate.

“There are many able leaders such as D K Shivakumar, G Parameshwara, Mallikarjun Kharge, V S Ugrappa, S R Patil  and H Vishwanath. Siddaramaiah has been the chief minister for the last three years. Let others become the chief minister. If the chief minister can remove people like Vinay Kumar Sorake from the Cabinet on the basis of completion of three years, why don’t the same rule can be applied to himself?” Poojary questioned.

Poojary said the image of the party is tarnished due to the chief minister’s act.
He said he is seeking the chief minister’s resignation to save the party.

He charged that the government is hesitating to file an FIR though DySP M K Ganapathi, in his statement, has named minister K J George and two senior police officials. The statement should be considered as a dying declaration. Being a lawyer, Chief Minister Siddaramaih should have known about registering an FIR. Why is the CM protecting K J George, he asked.

He took the government to task for not taking the statement of Ganapathi’s wife Pavana.
He said the judicial probe should be conducted by the sitting judge of the Supreme Court and not a retired judge in this case.
