Hubballi: Revealing that former chief minister Siddaramaiah and Congress troubleshooter DK Shivakumar share a cold and not-so cordial equation, Minister Jagadish Shettar said that Siddaramaiah showing solidarity with DK Shivakumar is only an eyewash.
"If DKShi has not committed any mistake then there is no need to worry. If he has not hoarded black money then he must co-operate with the ED sleuths. The Income Tax raids and the crackdown by the ED are not politically motivated," he said adding that Siddaramaiah should stop worrying about the BJP and think about his own future.
Taking a jibe at Siddaramaiah, he said that three persons were given the Deputy CM's post to ensure strengthening of the party and administrative convenience.
"He could not become the opposition leader. He has been making random statements that show his culture. Siddaramaiah-Devegowda and Kumaraswamy have backstabbed each other. When they had the power, they kept fighting with each other and now when the power is gone, they are exhibiting their frustration in various ways," he said.
