"My actions are speaking. We should not speak. Our work should speak. We know what decisions should be taken and what action to be taken at what time. No need to learn any lessons from them. These are the people who dropped cases when their government was ruling in Karnataka. Some of their MLAs were facing direct charges of murder. Where was their duty consciousness then?" Bommai asked.
