HD Kumaraswamy claims CM Yediyurappa-PM Modi trust deficit 5.10.2019
MYSURU: JD (S) leader and former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy alleged on Friday that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa were not in good terms and that a trust deficit between them was the cause for a delay in release of funds by the Union government for relief and rehabilitation measures in flood-hit areas.   He told the media here: "The Chief Minister's inability to meet the Prime Minister gives an indication that there is lack of trust between the two. When I was the Chief Minister, during floods in Kodagu last year, the Prime Minister was in constant touch with me over the phone.
