Bengaluru: Former chief minister of Karnataka and BJP leader Jagadish Shettar criticised HD Kumaraswamy's controversial statement when he was caught on camera instructing someone over the phone to "mercilessly kill" those who murdered JD(S) leader Prakash.
Shettar said that the countdown to the fall of Kumaraswamy government has begun with the expansion of the cabinet. He also said that chief minister Kumaraswamy should have handled the situation with patience and responsibility, instead of getting emotional and asking for a shootout with respect to the murder of a JD(S) leader at Maddur, Karnataka. The guilty in the case should be arrested and punished legally, for which BJP would also extend its support, he said.
