Kumaraswamy appealed to Telangana chief minister K.Chandrasekhar Rao and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu to cooperate. He strongly criticized the BJP for trying to threaten their MLAs using Enforcement Directorate.
Hie said Their plan is to safeguard their MLAs. BJP & its ministers are working to purchase MLAs, people should know about the attitude of central govt. BJP does not have a majority, how has the Governor behaved? He has misused his office, said Kumaraswamy.
He said that He will request his father (HD Deve Gowda) to take the lead & talk to all regional parties & see how BJP is destroying democratic systems, we have to come together to protect interests of the country. Modi govt is misusing institutions of central govt. He knows they are threatening MLAs. Anand Singh (Cong MLA) told ‘they are using ED, He had a case in ED & they are going to screw him. He is sorry and to protect his interest,’ another Cong MLA who spoke to Singh told Kumaraswamy.
