Kalaburgi: Former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Friday lashed out at Umesh Jadhav, BJP candidate from Kalaburagi Lok Sabha Constituency for switching his loyalty and called him a ‘two-faced’ person.

Siddaramaiah was speaking at a campaign rally held at Konchavaram village in Chincholli taluk in support of Subhash Rathod, the Congress candidate from Chincholi Assembly constituency.

Stating that Congress leaders M. Mallikarjun Kharge and former CM late N. Dharam Singh introduced Jadhav to politics and were instrumental in his victory in the Assembly elections Siddaramaiah alleged Jadhav had backstabbed the party that gave him an eventful political career and was now trying to secure his son’s future.

Regarding the demand to include the Koli community in the Scheduled Tribes (STs) list, the former chief minister accused BJP leaders of politicising the issue for electoral gain adding that proposals sent by the previous Congress government for inclusion of Koli community in the ST list had been twice rejected by the Narendra Modi-led Union government

He further added that while the Congress party sought votes in the name of development, BJP sought votes based on nationalism and patriotism

Congress leaders Mallikarjun Kharge, M.B. Patil, Eshwar Khandre, and party candidate Subhash Rathod also participated in the campaign programme at Inoli, Chimanchod and Kalagi villages.
