Karnataka: Congress-JDS coalition completes 100 days, HDK meets Rahul Gandhi
Bengaluru, Aug 30: Amid Siddaramaiah's claims of becoming Chief Minister for another term, Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy-led Congress-JDS coalition Karnataka government completed 100 days on Thursday. Kumaraswamy thanked coalition partners for their support on the occasion.
Chief Minister's Office tweeted, "Kumaraswamy Our government is completing 100 days today. Our vision is to have an all-inclusive growth, balancing the overall development of both the urban and rural areas of the state, ushering in progress to all sectors and sections of people."
"The coalition government is committed to its vision of 'Samagra Karnataka - Samrudha Karnataka'. We have envisioned projects and policies to achieve this."
Meanwhile, Kumaraswamy met with Congress President Rahul Gandhi in New Delhi. Asked whether he complained to Rahul Gandhi about Siddaramaiah, he said, "No no. It was a cordial visit. I had just come to meet him (Rahul Gandhi) on 100 days of our government."
Former chief minister Siddaramaiah, chairman of the coordination committee, on Friday said if people's blessings are with him, he will have another stint as CM, though he refrained from indicating when it would be. Siddaramaiah claimed all his political opponents united to ensure he didn't become the CM after the May assembly polls. "But there's a kaal chakra (wheel of time). Those who are on top will have to come down and those below will go up," he added.
