2 Min Read

BENGALURU: Reacting to his expulsion as the Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) Karnataka President post, JD-S leader Chand Mahal Ibrahim launched an attack at the JD-S Supremo HD Deve Gowda asking the latter to “wait and watch.”

“The decision that they have taken, it is not possible to remove me as president. They don’t have the right. According to the JD(S) Constitution, 1/3rd of them must give me notice, call a meeting and pass a no-confidence motion in a meeting against me. That’s the procedure…I lost my son to strengthen your govt. Deve Gowda ji, for your profits, will you sacrifice other children for your son?” Ibrahim said while speaking to reporters in Karnataka’s Bengaluru.

“Don’t trigger me. Wait and watch what will unfold from now. We will go to the Election Commission, High Court, and take a stay. Kerala and Tamil Nadu workers will also join hands. Deve Gowda is a father figure to me. Is this what you show to your son? I left my MLC post for you. How many houses do you want to ruin? Yesterday, you made Thippeswamy call me to discuss the alliance decision. What happened to Duryodhan in Mahabharat will happen to JD(S) in Karnataka… They are lying. I didn’t know about their alliance…” he added.

Earlier on Thursday, JD-S Supremo and former Prime Minister, H D Deve Gowda announced the expulsion of CM Ibrahim from the state unit president post and appointed HD Kumaraswamy as the interim president.

Kumaraswamy is a two-time Karnataka Chief Minister and son of Deve Gowda.

He also served as the leader of the opposition in the Karnataka Legislative Assembly from 2013 to 2014. Currently, he is an MLA from the Channapatna constituency. (ANI)
