Operation Hand is a ploy by DKS to unseat the CM, says B.P. Yatnal
Vijayapura: “The poaching of Opposition MLAs is a ploy by D.K. Shivakumar, KPCC president and the Deputy CM is trying to unseat CM Siddaramaiah,’‘ Basanagouda Patil Yatnal, BJP MLA, said in Vijayapura on Friday.
Shivakumar is behind this Operation Hand. It is not aimed at strengthening the party or anything. But it is only to unseat Siddaramaiah and to help Shivakumar become the CM. However, he will not succeed. Mr Siddaramaiah will not step down. It does not matter if the Congress government will stay for five years or five months, but Siddaramaiah will remain the last CM,” Yatnal said.
“Mr Shivakumar is already acting as the Super CM. He routinely calls for meetings of officials. Only the CM has the power to do that. Though Siddaramaiah is the CM, the real power rests with Shivakumar,” he said.
