Chief Minister Siddaramaiah

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Monday claimed that he would be the next chief minister and would rule the state for another five years.

"The BJP doesn't have faith in secularism. Union Minister of State for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Anant Kumar Hegde is unfit to be a gram panchayat member. He speaks of changing the Constitution. There will be bloodshed if anybody makes attempts in this regard," he said.

"The BJP national president Amit Shah says that the BJP is in no way related to Hegde's statement. To rule the country, 56 inch chest is not important, but kindheartedness," Siddaramaiah noted.

"Modi had assured of curbing corruption and cheating before coming to power. What was he doing when Nirav Modi and Vijay Mallya escaped from the country? Siddaramaiah questioned.

"Prices of essential commodities have skyrocketed. Modi should stop telling Man Ki Bath, but begin highlighting Kaam Ki Baath," the chief minister said.

"It is 100 % certain that the Congress party would retain the power," he claimed.

While addressing voters at Hanur, Siddaramaiah termed Modi as the biggest liar of Independent India.

"When Yeddyurappa was chief minister, he did not waive off farm loan. He had told that he did not have a printing machine at his house. Now, he is promising of waiving off farm loan. He has been jailed. What else can he tell?" Siddaramaiah charged.
