In a major reshuffle, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Sunday sacked 14 ministers and inducted 13 members into his Council of Ministry in the long awaited exercise.
With the Congress High Command giving the go-ahead, nine ministers of cabinet rank and four ministers of state were inducted at the swearing in ceremony at Raj Bhavan with Governor Vajubhai Vala administering the oath of office and secrecy.
One of the dropped minister Ambareesh quit as MLA and said: “I am not so ordinary to be thrown away like this.
He also added, “Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah is an ambitious man he should have told me about his decision. He should have treated me with respect.”
Ambareesh rued, “Siddaramaiah cannot treat me like footwear.”
