Reacting to the allegation of BJP leaders and Eknath Shinde, that the Congress led State Government would collapse due to their own internal fight, CM Siddaramaiah said, "There is no internal or external fight within Congress. If so, we wouldn't have been able to work together unitedly in the Lok Sabha election. Shinde has made the statement politically. Let him save his own government first he said."

On former Chief Minister H D Kumarswamy's statement that he has a pen drive related to a corruption case, and he would release if the State Government would dare to get it investigated, CM Siddaramaiah said, "His case is always a hit and run one."

When asked if he would campaign for Lok Sabha polls in other States, he replied, "I have been invited to campaign states."
