Bidar: Rural Development and Panchayat Raj minister Jagadish Shettar sought to downplay the issue of Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa and the former Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy planning to swear before Lord Manjunatha in Dharmasthala on June 27, saying it was a common practice in India.
“It is a good move. Swearing before God is part of Indian culture. After all, MLAs take oath in the name of God in the Assembly,” he said.
He was speaking to presspersons after laying the foundation stone of a workshop in the Government ITI college campus in Bidar on Monday.
He denied allegations made by some Janata Dal (Secular) leaders that he had tried to negotiate a deal between the two leaders.
