Siddaramaiah's reaction comes in the wake of a series of allegations, including corruption, being levelled by state BJP leaders as part of their campaign against the ruling party ahead of assembly polls, due early next year.

"People want our government to come back (to power) again because they know that Siddaramaiah fulfils the election promises. They know well that our government came out with programmes for the economically weaker section, farmers, women backward communities and minorities", he said.
