"I don't want to get into this. They know what is right and what is not. They should rather introspect themselves as such a move (taking oath to settle scores) will not help win people's confidence," said Gowda addressing reporters.
Gowda further said that Yeddyurappa earlier had visited a temple in Nanjanagud and promised that he would not be involved in any politics of reprisal. "But what happened after that?" said Gowda, calling Yedurappas attempts to keep his promise "alleged" failure.
"Sindhia, being senior politician, should strengthen JD(S). On my part, I have been striving and travelling extensively across the state. The party will be strengthened in the next three months," he said expressing his unhappiness on PGR Sindhia, working President JD(S) for not playing an active role in strengthening the party.
Kumaraswamy had earlier accepted the challenge of Yeddyurappa to take an oath in front of Lord Manjunatheshwara, to prove Yeddyurappa's "attempts to buy peace" with the former.
"Yeddyurappa is a coward Chief Minister.It is he who is engaged in hit and run politics and not me. I have been releasing documents after documents on the corruption involved in by Yeddyurappa and his family.Yeddyurappa has failed to respond to the charges," Kumaraswamy had said.
"Yeddyurappa has the habit of taking vows before god and seers only to renege on them later," he said.
"He took a oath in the name of god that he would not seek a ticket for his son to contest the Shimoga Lok Sabha seat, but managed to get it. Yeddyurappa went before Nanujundeshwara temple (Mysore), repented for his misdeeds, vowed not to repeat, but continued later," the JD(S) leader claimed.
