Decide who is the "real" CM in your family, BJP asks Gowda

Press Trust of India  |  Bengaluru 

BJP today asked the first family of the JDS to decide who among its members was the real as it taunted the regional party amid reports about 'interference' of H D Revanna, son of JDS supremo H D Deve Gowda, in other departments.

Also terming H D Kumaraswamy, brother of Revanna, as "crippled CM", it said was still waiting for a government that can function.

"The state of apparently has 3 CM. HD the crippled CM, HD the super CM, HD Deve the supreme CM," the said in a tweet.

"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.

BJP's attack on the family has come amidst reports about Revanna's alleged interference in the affairs of other departments, upsetting several Ministers in the coalition government.

JD(S), often referred to as the party of "father and sons" following 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 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.
