‘Show Patience!’ – Moily’s Advice to Party’s Seniors
Udupi: Chikkaballapur MP and former chief minister M Veerappa Moily has advised senior Congress leaders to show patience and settle the internal issues within the framework of the party instead of resorting to public forums to air the grievances.
He was speaking to mediapersons on the sidelines of a function organized by the Devadiga Sangha here on Sunday.
Although he did not name anyone, it was clearly seen as a dig at two senior leaders, former CM S M Krishna and former Union minister B Janardhana Poojary, who have been making noise about CM Siddaramaiah’s leadership.
He opined that those who had held high posts at the national level should be patient and try to sort out the party issues within the four walls instead of going public.
Seniors who had earlier enjoyed power should not issue statements in public but instead, speak to the chief minister direct. Currently, no such situation prevailed that demanded a change of the chief minister of the state, he declared.
In the matter of DySP Ganapathi’s suicide, mere allegations that minister George was involved would not be sufficient. Without providing any proof, merely demanding his resignation was unfair.
Both CID and judicial inquiries had been ordered. If proven guilty, the minister would have to resign. Until then, everyone had to wait, he said.
