The strength of his character and commitment to to the State, DVS has gained praises even from Opposition Parties.
DV Sadananda Gowda's removal is being carried out of their vested interests, this has affected the entire Governmental programmes including the sessions. This is gross injustice to democracy itself. It is BJP Government's inefficiency to plan the change in the leadership in the phase of North Karnataka being gripped in drought. Moreover, this kind of caste ridden politics is a lethal blow to the Govt. of Karnataka", he said.
He further reiterated "The Governor shouldn't accept the resignation of DV Sadananda Gowda. BJP too should reconsider matters and policies in the interest of the entire governance. Considering all the good things achieved by DV Sadananda Gowda BJP High Command should let DV Sadananda Gowda continue his tenure as a successful Chief Minister".
