Mangaluru: Addressing a press conference at Press Club on Monday January 30, former union minister, Janardhan Poojary, expressed his disappointment that a veteran and versatile leader like former chief minister of Karnataka, S M Krishna, had quit Congress party.
"I subscribe to the view that he was sidelined in the party because he has openly said so. During the press conference, there were times when he got emotional. His wife was there to witness the agony her husband was going through. His wife has been his greatest strength, and she has always stood by Krishna's side," he stated.
"We can understand by the way Krishna, who is always calm and composed, lost his composure, that he has been deeply hurt. We have to remember the contributions he made to the state, country, and the party. I strongly feel that his decision to quit the party was not right. I would have joined hands with Krishna in his fight against this evil," Poojary added.
The veteran Congress leader came down heavily on Karnataka chief minister, Siddaramaiah, and said that Siddaramaiah has been intoxicated by power, pride, and egotism and that he is a curse for the Congress.
