High command will decide on next CM: Siddaramaiah

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Sunday said there is no doubt that a Congress leader would inaugurate the next year’s Dasara celebration in Mysuru as the chief minister.

Talking to reporters here, Siddaramaiah said the media had reported that he had said he would inaugurate the Dasara celebrations next year also. “There is no doubt over the Congress retaining power under my leadership in the coming Assembly polls. However, the Congress high command will choose the leader of the House and next the chief ministerial candidate. Mediapersons should stop creating confusion in the minds of people.” he said

Hitting back at senior BJP leader R Ashoka for calling him “Benkiramaiah”, Siddaramaiah said stirring communal tension across the country was the ideology of RSS. The Congress always believed in the ideology of spreading communal harmony besides uniting the people of the country . But, the BJP is involved in dividing people on communal lines, he told reporters before participating in Sharana Samskruthi Utsav-2017, organised by Brihan Murugha Mutt here.
