Mandya: Just two days ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy, on Monday, while seeking votes for his son Nikhil shedded tears once again and also explained about his health issues.

Kumaraswamy, who was campaigning for his son at KR Pete said that he had stopped shedding tears in the public, but when JD(S) state president A H Vishwanath told him that nobody was understanding the situation he was in and his health condition, so he was not able to control him emotions.

He further said “I have not been able to govern with a calm mind right from the day I became chief minister. If I had won 120 seats, there would have been no problem.”

Kumaraswamy attacking Independent candidate Sumalatha said that as soon as he had received the message about Ambareesh’s demise, he had rushed to the hospital, but Sumalatha was not there. Then he made all arrangements to bring Ambareesh’s body to Mandya, for the people to pay their last respects.

He further said that “Sumalatha, who was against bringing the mortal remains of Ambareesh to Mandya, is now shedding tears before the people, creating a scene. It was the Janata Dal, which made Ambareesh an MP. We (Deve Gowda and Kumaraswamy) turn emotional when we see people in crisis. I do not know, why she cries”

Criticising actors Yash and Darshan he said “people from the film industry are coming to Mandya during the election. Who came when farmers committed suicide? Which actor came in when the farmers committed suicide and their mothers were in tears.”
