Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy on Friday said that no one can ‘touch’ him at least till next year’s Lok Sabha polls.
However, Kumaraswamy asserted that he would not remain silent during the period that he has got and would focus on taking decisions for the benefit of the state.
“This coalition government will function with stability. I know, no one can touch me for one year. I will be there at least for one year, until the Lok Sabha election is over. Until then, no one can do anything to me,” Kumaraswamy said while addressing an event in Bengaluru.
Kumaraswamy made it clear that he would not waste his time and immerse himself in work as it was important that the state progresses in all spheres.
“So in the opportunity that I have got, rather than going into what others have done, what I have done will be my message. in doing this, the environment is also in my favour (with good rains),” he added.
Talking about his commitment to farm loan waiver, Kumaraswamy said he would “not escape” from his commitment.
Earlier in the day, the Chief Minister had reiterated that he was committed to waiving farm loans and would announce it shortly.
“Dear farmers, Let there be no confusion on farm loan waiver. I am fully committed to the loan waiver. I want to ensure it is done scientifically benefiting maximum number of farmers. I am working on the the modalities and will announce it shortly,” Kumaraswamy said in a tweet.
