I am not a leader of one particular group or community, but of the 6.5 crore people of the state.” Mr Kumaraswamy declared.
Mysuru: “It has not been easy to become Chief Minister in the present political environment. I had aspired to be CM, but not this way. I had expected to come to power with the complete blessings of the people,” said Mr H D Kumaraswamy here on his arrival at the Lalitmahal helipad on Wednesday morning, to offer special poojas to Goddess Chamundeswari atop the Chamundi hills, prior to taking oath as Chief Minister. Speaking to reporters he said he would make use of the opportunity to solve the problems of the state and requested the BJP to cooperate with him.
