Bangalore, Oct 6 (UNI) Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy today ruled out possibility of seeking Congress support for his survival following coalition partner Bharatiya Janata Party deciding to withdraw its support.
Talking to newsmen on his arrival at the Airport, he said that "the situation does not arise now, we have sufficient strength to fight on our own".
Strongly defending his party's decision in not handing over power to BJP, Mr Kumaraswamy charged that BJP leaders had no minimum curtecy to consult him on transfer of power. Mr Yediyurappa had not even bothered when his party leaders in Bellary strongly criticised his father Mr Deve Gowda and himself. "Should I push my father to death bed and handover power to them, he questioned.
To another question whether he would meet the governor and submit resignation tomorrow, Mr Kumaraswamy said that it was only a speculation.
When asked whether still there was room for talks with BJP, he said that "in politics anything may happen, but they suggested that I should resign and discuss with them, but nothing is there to discuss." UNI
