JD(S) leader HD Deve Gowda on Thursday publicly voiced his unhappiness with ally Congress, saying he was in 'pain' and would not remain 'quiet anymore'.

Gowda, father of Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy, made known that the six months of running the coalition government with the Congress was not a pleasant experience but he had "not opened mouth."

"Is this a way to run the coalition government, where we have to request our partner not to use foul language? Six months have passed that Kumaraswamy became the Chief Minister and all kinds of things have happened in six months. Till now I haven't opened my mouth but now I can't keep quiet," he said.

His comment comes days after several state Congress leaders demanded that former chief minister Siddaramaiah be made CM again.

Gowda also slammed former Siddaramaiah who a few days back misbehaved with a woman, where he snatched her mic.

"How can anyone touch anybody's clothes? He is a kind of person who does not even meet MLAs," Gowda said.
