Bengaluru: Close on the heels of Congress MLA Ramesh Jarkiholi and his associate's rebellion, now the party and the Karnataka coalition are all set to witness another set of troubles as three-time MLA BC Patil has openly launched a scathing attack on former chief minister Siddaramaiah and the party for fooling him by giving false assurance of making him a minister after Lok Sabha poll result.
In an exclusive interview with MyNation, Patil claimed, from the last one year, the party leaders like Siddaramaiah, BZ Zameer Ahmed Khan, Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president Dinesh Gundu Rao and deputy chief minister Dr G Parameshwara had promised but had not made him a minister.
He said he is not a “saint” to allow such a situation to pass through and do nothing and he will take the right decision at an appropriate time. He also said he is very loyal to Siddaramaiah and never expected that he will betray him.
