In a press conference at his residence in Bengaluru, the minister said, "There is no question of resigning from my post." He further said that he had no ill-feelings against the chief minister, and only expressed his displeasure against the issue. In his letter, the actor-turned-politician wrote, “I’ve been the Housing Minister for the last two years and have discharged my duties with utmost sincerity and loyalty. However, my opinion has not been sought and I’ve not been taken into consideration by you (Siddaramaiah) will making appointments related to Mandya. Additionally, I was neglected even during taking decisions related to district politics.” The ‘rebel’ star is miffed at not being consulted at while making appointments to Mandya boards and corporations. He further stated that he respected the chief minister’s decision in electing the chairman for the Mandya DCC Bank, however, his opinion was not sought while naming authorities to the Apex Bank, as promised. “This is my way of expressing dissatisfaction over this issue,” he wrote in the letter.
