“Not even my dead body will go to the BJP,” he said at a rally in poll-bound Karnataka.
Siddaramaiah, who has been nursing chief ministerial ambitions, was taking a dig at HD Kumaraswamy’s Janata Dal Secular as its MLAs had defected to BJP, bringing an end to the Congress-JDS government in the state.
Responding to the senior Congress leader’s statement, BJP leader Narayanaswamy said Siddaramaiah is disillusioned.
“Why will his body come here? He is disillusioned. You are a former CM. We all have respect for you. Please save that respect,” the BJP MLC said.
The Karnataka Assembly election is expected to be held on or before May 2023.
