BJP today asked the first family of the JDS to decide who among its members was the real Karnataka chief minister as it taunted the regional party amid reports about 'interference' of PWD Minister H D Revanna, son of JDS supremo H D Deve Gowda, in other departments.
"With so many CMs the state is still waiting for agovt that can function. We think Deve Gowda's family should first decide who really is the CM," it said.
JD(S), often referred to as the party of "father and sons" following Gowda and sons' alleged control over the party, was now being accused of similar conduct in the coalition government.
Hitting back at BJP over its tweet, newly appointed JD(S) state President H Vishwanath advised the saffron party to speak with sense.
"Any one can speak or comment, no one can stop it in a democracy, but a national party and its leaders when they speak should speak with sense..," he said.
