New Delhi:

Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy shared a photograph of him sleeping on the floor during his village stay campaign ''Grama Vastavya 2.0'', which kick started from Gurmitkal in Yadgir district on Friday. The Karnataka chief minister also denied the reports of him getting the five-star treatment during his village visit.

“What 5-star arrangements? Ready to sleep on the road. Want to ask the Opposition if I cannot have this basic facility, how will I work every day? A small bathroom was built. I will not be taking it back with me," HD Kumaraswamy said during a press conference in Chandraki village.

Kumaraswamy said that he came to the village on a normal bus and that he doesn’t need to learn anything from the BJP.

"It will help kids here. I came here on an ordinary bus. I did not come in a Volvo bus. I do not need to learn anything from BJP. I have slept in a hut as well as in a 5-star hotel. When my father was Prime Minister, I slept in Grand Kremlin Palace, Russia. I have seen everything in life," he said.

The JDS leader said that his village stay programme could be a gimmick for the Opposition BJP but not for him.  "Some of my friends are asking why I am holding the ''village stay programme'', they can sit in Vidhan Soudha and work. I would like to say that gimmicks are for the Opposition, not for me," he added.

Earlier, there were reports that the Karnataka chief minister was receiving five-star treatment during his stay at Chandrika village. A bathroom was renovated at the lodge where he was staying before his visit.
