Karnataka Congress MLA and senior chief Basavaraj Rayareddy, who stirred an issue by saying that Siddaramaiah went on to change into the Chief Minister twice after becoming a member of the Congress, has clarified that he solely meant to say that “luck is more important than the experience or seniority in politics”.

Earlier on Thursday, Rayareddy mentioned, “Look at our Siddaramaiah, he joined Congress and became Chief Minister twice. What would the senior leaders in Congress think of this man’s luck? People like L.K. Advani built the BJP, but then Narendra Modi came and became the Prime Minister.”

He had made the remarks in a public assembly in Kukanur city of Koppal district on Wednesday.

Reacting to the controversy over his remarks, the Karnataka Congress MLA mentioned that within the public assembly one of many staff requested him why he isn’t a Minister whilst he’s a senior politician.

“I told him that in politics there is no question of senior or junior. Late L.K. Advani built the BJP and Narendra Modi went to become the Prime Minister, ” he reiterated.

“I was a cabinet Minister during former Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai’s father S.R. Bommai. Basavaraj Bommai went to become Chief Minister before me. Likewise, Siddaramaiah came from JD (S) and became the Chief Minister. Referring to these developments, I have said that in politics, more than seniority, luck is important, ” Rayareddy added.

The Congress MLA demanded that there must be a coordination committee between the Ministers and legislators.

“This is not wrong. Chief Minister is the leader of the Legislature Party. He should conduct district-wise meetings twice in a month. This will help to discuss problems of the constituency and district.”

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has agreed to conduct district-wise conferences, he mentioned, including that it isn’t that cupboard ministers are improper however just a few of them usually are not taking celebration MLAs into confidence.

“Congress MLA B.R. Patil had prepared a letter addressed to the Chief Minister and I had signed it, ” he mentioned.

“The Minister’s performance should be evaluated once in a year. It has to be observed who is doing a good job. Like how IAS officers work is evaluated, Ministers’ work should also be reviewed, ” he added.

Such statements have once more stirred controversy and mentioned that every one will not be properly inside the ruling Congress authorities in Karnataka.
