My father should become the CM in the interest of Karnataka – Yatindra Siddaramaiah
Yatindra Siddaramaiah, Congress leader and son of former CM Siddaramaiah said, “We will do anything to keep BJP out of power. In the interest of Karnataka, my father should become the CM.” Yatindra Siddaramaiah further said, “As a son I would definitely like to see my father as the Chief Minister again. Last time his government had governed very well, this time also if he becomes the CM then the misrule given by the BJP government will be rectified by him.”
Siddaramaiah’s son said that in the interest of the state also, I think he should become the chief minister. The Congress leader said, “We will get absolute majority and will form our government. We are confident and all the surveys have also said that Congress is going to win the Karnataka assembly elections.”
PM Modi’s negative campaign did not work – Pawan Kheda
On the other hand, seeing the Congress getting an edge in the initial trends, Congress leader Pawan Kheda said, “It is a matter of issues, the issues on which we fought have been won. We are going to form our government with a huge majority. Our five guarantees have worked, PM Modi’s negative campaign has not worked.”
BJP leader Sadananda Gowda said following the trends, “It is too early to give any final verdict, there will be little clarity after 3-4 rounds but this is also not final, every phase is a tough fight as our opposition parties (JDS and Congress) ) have joined hands.
On the other hand, a video has surfaced even before the results, in which celebrations are being held at the Congress office in Delhi with beating of drums.
