MYSURU: The Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah on Sunday said that he will not object if the Congress high command wants to appoint a dalit as the state CM but asserted that the high command should not impose the decision.

In an interview to a Kannada TV news channel, Siddaramaiah said, if dalit CM is appointed without taking legislators into confidence, it will adversely impact governance owing to dissidence.

Asked in the event the party secures majority and wants to appoint a dalit as the CM, Siddaramaiah said: “I’ll tell them do it. I’m not against anybody.” While he left the decision to the high command, the chief minister told reporters that it will be difficult to impose any leader.

“The party will have to take opinion of the legislators and the high command has to agree to it,” Siddaramaiah said adding “I didn’t face any dissidence in my five-year term.”

Siddaramaiah had on Saturday claimed the Congress will win over 120 seats in the assembly elections and he will once again hold the top post. On the question of who will be the chief minister, Siddaramaiah had said, “The party has already decided to hold the election under my leadership. What does it indicate? I will be the next the Chief Minister.” When asked what will be the Congress’ stand in case of a hung assembly, a confident looking Siddaramaiah said that situation won’t arise at all.

Polling in the southern state was held yesterday and the results will be declared on Tuesday.
