Bengaluru: Amid the fierce battle between the coalition partners and the BJP over dethroning the Kumaraswamy government, a political slugfest has broken out between dissident Yallapur Congress MLA, Shivaram Hebbar and Uttara Kannada district in-charge Minister, R.V. Deshpande.

Mr Hebbar is one of the 13 Congress MLAs who resigned from the party and since then, he has been camping in Mumbai with the other dissidents. He is suspected to be in touch with the BJP for ensuring a better political future for himself. Nearly 10 days after he submitted his resignation from the Assembly which is pending with the Speaker, Mr Hebbar posted a detailed message on his facebook page from Mumbai, apologising to voters in his constituency, Yallapur.

 

“In the past, many have represented this constituency and many others may succeed me in future. As an elected representative, I have got irrigation projects, roads and other development works done. I am not someone who will sell myself compromising the interests of the constituency. Ever since the coalition government came to power, bickering between the two parties has not only upset party workers but voters too. As a result, development works has taken a hit. I could have enjoyed my tenure for five years without securing any development work for the constituency. But I chose otherwise and decided to resign and protest. Even party senior leaders and the district in charge minister  did not show the courtesy to come to my constituency's rescue,” he said.

 

In retaliation, Mr Deshpande said he did what he could do for the district.
