Neelu Vyas

Chief minister Siddaramaiah says his direct fight is with BJP presumptive chief minister Yeddyurappa but he is forced to make comments against Prime Minister. In an exclusive Interview to Rajya Sabha TV Siddaramaiah has dismissed reports that he is not the automatic choice for the chief minister. He even said that he accorded the Minority status to Lingayats not for political gains but because it was the need of the community.
