It appeared that he was fed up with the politics played by former CM and Congress leader Siddaramaiah. He feels that Yeddiyurappa had attacked him from outside while former CM Siddaramaiah wrecked from inside. Due to this, his government was defeated during the trust vote. After dethroning Kumaraswamy, the BJP senior leader Yeddiyurappa has taken over.
Kumaraswamy's statements assume significance as they come soon after his government's fall and ahead of the bypolls caused by the resignation of some of the Congress and the JDU MLAs. Kumaraswamy has only yesterday conducted a review of the KR Pet Assembly constituency, which is one of the constituencies going for the bypolls.
