Yeddyurappa locks horns with Kumaraswamy: ‘You’re seen as an illegitimate child born out of an unholy alliance’

As reported by Times of India, Karnataka Chief Minister, H D Kumaraswamy lock horns with B S Yeddyurappa in the legislative assembly on Tuesday, after the leader of the opposition accused the Chief Minister of being inconsistent in his stand on farm loan waivers and for not sticking to the promises he made during the formation of a coalition government.

Yeddyurappa, while addressing the motion of thanks to the governor’s address went into a tooth and nail fight with Kumaraswamy.

In a snappy comeback, Yeddyurappa lashed out saying, “You are seen as the illegitimate child born out of an unholy alliance. Questions are already being asked on how long the (saandharbika shishu) circumstantial baby will survive.”

Yeddyurappa took a dig at Kumaraswamy by reiterating some of his controversial statements where he called himself a “child of circumstance” and that he was not obligated to the people, but to the Congress party, Yeddyurappa said it is an “insult” to the people of the state. “He (CM) has called himself a child of circumstance. Anything that is born in an atmosphere of selfishness, hatred, jealousy will not have a natural lifetime. His comments show he is guilty because he is ruling without getting people’s mandate,” Yeddyurappa said.

The former chief minister also took a jibe at the CM, mocking him for his own comments, while digging into the past when Kumaraswamy in election rallies prior to the Karnataka elections had said, “I will rather die than go with Congress.” I will give in writing on a bond paper, we will not go with Congress.”

Yeddyurappa reminded the CM of the promises he made of clearing dues taken by farmers from private money lenders, during a visit to a temple in Dharamasthala. This led to a bitter squabble between the two politicians as Kumaraswamy rejected the charges and sought proof. It led to allegations and counter allegations on decisions made during the JD(S)-BJP coalition government of 2006.

However, intermittently the speaker K R Ramesh Kumar, kept intervening and requesting the two dignitaries to not to dig into the past.

Regardless of the warnings issued by the speaker of the house and Kumaraswamy, the former CM kept slamming the CM, by digging into the past. Accusing the JD(S)-Congress government of pushing Karnataka into deep debt, BS Yeddyurappa, demanded a white paper on the state’s finances before chief minister HD Kumaraswamy presented the budget on Thursday.

Yeddyurappa claimed the Chief Minister had promised to waive loans worth Rs 53,000 crore and he should explain how he will arrange funds when the state has already run up debts of Rs 2.4 lakh crore and PWD and irrigation bills worth Rs 10,000 crore are still pending. The former CM also demanded that the JD(S) draw up a plan to fulfil promises made by them in the election manifesto that included Rs 6,000 monthly pension to all senior citizens aged over 65 years and Rs 2,000 allowance to all pregnant women.

Claiming that internal politics and tiffs amongst the coalition have brought governance to a standstill. Yeddyurappa, mockingly called the present CM a puppet in the hands of the coalition, taunting as to who the real CM was, Kumaraswamy or Siddaramaiah: “While one remote control of the government is in Delhi (Congress high command), the other is in Padmanabhanagar (Deve Gowda’s residence in Bengaluru),” he added.
