MYSURU: Reacting to former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy’s allegations about why the JDS government fell, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said on Monday that one who does not know how to dance blames the stage.

“One who does not know how to dance blames the stage. Similarly, he is levelling allegations in vain,” the Chief Minister said here.

Siddaramaiah’s reaction came after, H D Kumaraswamy on Saturday blamed him for the fall of the JDS government in the state.

Taking a dig at CM Siddaramaiah, Kumaraswamy posted on X, “When Rome was burning, Nero was playing the violin! Here people were in trouble, Nero of Karnataka (CM) was watching a cricket match.”

The chief minister spoke to the media after paying tributes to the statue of Kittur Rani Chennamma near the town hall.

On the occasion of Vijayadashami, he said that he would take part in the procession of Chamundeshwari Devi, Nandi Kamba Pooja and other festivities organised in Mysore along with ministers, legislators and officers.

Siddaramaiah on Monday wished the people of the state on the occasion of Dussehra and said that all preparations for the traditional ‘Jamboo Savari’ procession have been done.

“Happy Dussehra to the people of the state. Tomorrow is Vijayadashami and today is Ayudha Puja. Jamboo Savari will be held tomorrow in Mysore. All preparations are made for Jamboo Savari…Chamundeshwari procession will be held in Mysore and we will offer floral tributes,” CM Siddaramaiah said.

Mysuru, the cultural capital of Karnataka, is all decked up for the ‘Jamboo Savari’ procession, which marks the culmination of the 10-day-long festivities in the state and is celebrated along with Navaratri.

In Karnataka, Dussehra is observed as a State festival – Nadahabba, the celebration of the festival is steered by the erstwhile Royal Family of Mysore. During Dussehra, the entire City is decorated and illuminated. The Palace and other important buildings are illuminated.

The illuminated Mysore Palace during the Dussehra celebrations draws tourists from all over the world. The elephants for the Dussehra processions are also undergoing training for the grand day. 12 Dasara jumbos will march on the procession route from Mysore Palace to Bannimantap twice a day. (ANI)
