Mysuru: “Let the time come, I will tell whether I am in race for CM,” this was how former deputy chief minister Dr G Parameshwara replied to a media query, during his visit to Suttur mutt on Thursday.
While he specifically didn’t deny over being a CM aspirant, Parameshwara said ” there is still two more years to go for the elections. We have to win and the party should get majority. After that, the MLAs will come out with their opinions.”
Since then, it is not appropriate to discuss such issues, as there is no specific name suggested for the chief minister in Congress Legislature Party meeting too.
We will abide by the decision of high command and this tradition will continue, said Parameshwara.
“I suggest the leaders and party followers not to raise slogans like Next CM and names. I also told them now not to address me also like that. It is not our party manners,” said Parameshwara.
On ‘Siddaramaiah as next CM’ demand, Parameshwara said that he will discuss with his friends and elders in the party to stop discussing such matters at this juncture.
He also alleged that both state and central governments failed to handle the Covid crisis. They should take responsibility for lakhs of deaths caused due to pandemic.
The state government failed to manage two district administrations that led to disruption in oxygen supply in Chamarajanagar district Covid Hospital, that claimed several lives, said Parameshwara.
